SOTIF 2020 Summit

Detroit, MI, United States

SOTIF is Coming to Detroit

ADAS and highly automated driving systems are the future, but how do we ensure they're safe?

Born out of part 14 of ISO 26262, ISO/PAS 21448 seeks to fill the gaps left by the original, hardware-focused standard. The SOTIF 2020 Summit will tackle the burning questions and challenges that the new standard has created for the industry.

Our audience will enable systems architecture, sensor fusion, software, ADAS, simulation, testing and validation engineers to meet with Chief Product Officers, Directors of Engineering, and the leaders that created the ISO/PAS 21448 standard.

Key discussions will be led on overwriting data, the challenges in sensor fusion and leveraging AI to create more advanced connected, autonomous, and electric vehicles.

We have created an exciting program and enjoyable format designed to maximize your learning experience and professional development:
  • Tailored technical guidance on the design, verification and validation measures needed to achieve SOTIF. Learn how this will impact engineering lifecycles, and what work is being done in-industry to address the safety of ML.
  • A two-for-one community event, SOTIF 2020 is co-located with the Automotive Cybersecurity Detroit conference. Think outside the safety silo and join our speed-date networking in the Discovery Zone with attendees from both events.
  • Immersive delegate experiences and benchmarking opportunities during our interactive discussion groups, in-depth workshops and training day, and during our post-conference meet ups.
  • The cutting-edge in industry collaboration and self-regulated safety efforts, with involvement from ISO, SAE, National Safety Council, and the Autonomous Vehicle Safety Consortium.
