Architecting vehicles for functional safety compliance


Architecting vehicles for functional safety compliance

Learn how a highly efficient approach for software partitioning and functionality assignment plays a vital role in delivering a rich automotive solution. Apply design constraints for the functional safety of complex automotive E/E systems. Practical design examples discussed in this session include a system-level framework for partitioned communication introduced into the AUTOSAR ECU systems.

Develop ECU AUTOSAR software for functional safety requirements

Automotive megatrends of electrification, connectivity, and automation have intensified the necessity for functional safety. Consumer expectations for end-user vehicle functionality have also increased demands on CPU performance.

You’ll learn more about:

  • Probable fault scenarios and strategies to achieve “freedom of interference” among software components and functions with different safety integrity levels onto integrated automotive embedded architectures
  • Considerations for design partitioning, including efficient load distribution, temporal and spatial isolation, effective core and memory utilization, reduced communication bandwidth, scheduling capabilities, and end-to-end communication protection
  • Lifecycle coverage of ISO 26262 “Road Vehicles – Functional Safety” standard and a gap analysis of its 2011 and 2018 releases
  • Quantification of potential hazards through Automotive Safety Integrity Levels (ASIL) and ASIL assignment based on exposure probability, driver controllability, and failure severity

Who would be interested in functional safety compliance

  • Automotive network and safety engineers
  • Automotive product managers and solution architects
  • Product safety officers, engineering managers and technology directors
