Sneak preview on the presentations this year

Daimler Trucks

Development of the new ISO 26262:2018 expands the scope to include trucks and buses. This presentation explains how these “tools” are very different from passenger cars. It also describes variation by base vehicle type, variation by vehicle configuration, and variation in operation. Trucks and buses are also different from passenger cars because the value stream may include the integration of safety-related content after the sale.

Volkswagen Group of America

The presentation will discuss current and potential future activities in methods of securing the Data Link Connector (DLC) (commonly referred to as the “OBD-II Port”) from the cybersecurity risks posed by the existence of this connector.

Hella Electronics Corporation

Modular designed systems present many challenges for Functional Safety, and especially for Functional Safety Assessment. How can the appropriateness and effectiveness for different releases be ensured? How can these goals be achieved in an economic way which satisfies ISO26262?

Hella Electronics Corporation

Functional safety at the project level is often seen as confusing, not well-defined, costly in dollars and time, and a threat to project completion. In my experience re-use of Functional safety artefacts helps to manage these issues and insert a needed practical level to the process and its understanding.

Mercedes-Benz R&D

Mercedes-Benz Research and Development North America (MBRDNA) develops e-drive software for electrified powertrains within the Daimler product portfolio. The e-drive software is designed to be modularized and facilitates application of the same software on different vehicle platforms. Small variations in the system requirements for the target application lead to variants of certain software components within the system. Hence, challenges at the level of requirement management, SW integration, testing of delta content as well as management of calibration sets for the different variants arise. MBRDNA uses an integrated Life Cycle Management method to handle the complexity. MBRDNA utilizes a model-based software development environment to ease development and enable agility in the realization of this emerging powertrain technology. In order to avoid software design errors early on, guarantee optimal generated code and comply with the relevant safety standard according to ISO26262, the Daimler internal modeling guidelines are applied and are part of the automated Model Quality Assurance processes.
