Session 8.4: Intelligent Systems IV Development Methods

Safety in Cooperative Automated Systems Vortragssprache Englisch

There is an overarching trend in the application domains of embedded systems towards ever higher levels of automation and interconnection. Such systems harbor enormous potential regarding new types of services and applications. However, before compelling visions and ideas can be turned into actual economic and societal success, we need to tackle a series of important engineering challenges. One key challenge is the assurance of safety, because established methods and standards operate on the base assumption that systems and contexts are known completely – which can no longer be assumed. This talk presents correlated solution ideas and concepts to enable safety assurance of open/cooperative and highly automated systems. First, the applicability of current standards as well as open gaps are discussed. In particular, it is shown that merely considering functional safety is not sufficient. As additional dimensions, safety of the intended functionality as well as the engineering of a safe normal function must be considered. Moreover, complex behaviors and the utilization of machine learning technology pose the need for novel safety measures. Thus, an overview is given regarding different ML approaches and correlated means for assurances. Finally, based on these building blocks, a “dynamic risk management” concept is presented as a means to make cooperative systems resilient, i.e. to ensure safety on a system of systems level despite continuous dynamic changes.
