Schulung Funktionale Sicherheit


Practical training on SOTIF (PAS 21448) including comprehensive practical examples

The new PAS 21148 standard revolves around the topic of Safety of the Intended Functionality (SOTIF). The idea is to assess whether an application’s intended function may involve certain hazards. This goes above and beyond protecting a system from malfunctions, as has been looked at until now under functional safety (ISO 26262). A number of additional assessment methods are required for this new task. On this training course, you learn the requirements of PAS 21448 and suitable procedures. The second day consists of intensive practical examples for you to understand how to apply these methods.

With complex development projects involving modern assistance systems for automated driving, evaluating desired functions takes a considerable amount of time. PAS 21448:2019 takes this need into account. The standard lays down an evaluation framework for identifying and assessing any possible hazards for road users posed by target functions.

SOTIF (PAS 21448) focuses on the nature and characteristics of functions. Until now, ISO standard 26262 only dealt with avoiding malfunctions. This approach is no longer sufficient for advanced driver assistance systems technology used in autonomous driving. SOTIF establishes a methodology for evaluating target functions, also providing an appendix offering guidelines and examples of suitable procedures. 

This SOTIF practical training is broken down into two parts

  • Day 1: introduction to the topic of SOTIF
    and resulting requirements for ADAS systems
  • Day 2: Workshop with practical examples
    for applying the learned methods by focusing on typical project needs
