SOTIF Conference USA

Austin, TX, United States

Be along for the ride when the first SOTIF draft will be discussed!

After the successful inauguration of The SOTIF Conference in Germany earlier this year, we are bringing the expertise of the ISO TC 22 W8 working group members and leading safety practitioners to the USA for discussing and finding the way forward in how to develop safe autonomous functions.

ISO/PAS 21448 - Safe Machine Learning - Highly automated & autonomous driving - Best Practices - Safe sensor algorithm

Originally started as part 14 of ISO 26262, SOTIF created some controversy. Now, SOTIF becomes a standard on its own. The idea of ISO/PAS 21448 is to complete ISO 26262 by a functional safety view on vehicle level. When our vehicles become more and more automated and autonomous, this trend asks for including the vehicle environment, notably sensor perception and sensor algorithm processing. With the first SOTIF draft comes uncertainties in the market on how to interpret and apply the standard.

Wipe away your unease with SOTIF and join our very first SOTIF conference.

Key topic areas:

  • Get the latest updates on ISO/PAS 21448 Safety of the intended functionality
  • Build a solid understanding of the SOTIF scope and how can it compliment your existing processes surrounding ISO 26262:2018
  • Identify how SOTIF might impact the semiconductor industry
  • Gain a competitive edge with lessons learnt and case studies on how to reach safe functionality on a vehicle level
  • Learn on safe Machine Learning and how to develop safe autonomous functions
  • Discuss and get the opportunity to comment on the SOTIF draft with the right experts from ISO TC22 working group
