A training course from the field of automated driving

Basics of functional safety in software-driven applications according to ISO26262 and SOTIF 

Functional safety in software-based applications is a key issue, especially in the context of vehicles. In this training we will take an in-depth look at the basics of ISO 26262 and Safety of the Intended Functionality (SOTIF). The focus will be on the practical application of these standards in the development of safety-critical software.

We will look at the key aspects of these standards to gain a solid understanding of their requirements and recommendations.

We will analyse how ISO 26262 and SOTIF affect the development of safety-critical software. What requirements must be met to ensure the safety of functions?

Using a practical case study, we will perform a hazard and risk assessment step by step. We will derive safety objectives and assess risks according to the Automotive Safety Integrity Level (ASIL).

We will learn the criteria for categorising safety requirements according to ASIL. This is essential in order to take the right action to minimise risk.

This training is aimed at anyone involved in the development of software-based applications in the automotive sector, in particular software developers, systems engineers, test engineers, project managers and quality managers.

After completing this course, you will understand the basic concepts of functional safety, know the requirements of ISO26262 and SOTIF, master the key techniques for developing safe software and be able to assess the safety of software-based applications.
