Altreonic will be speaking at a seminar on Functional Safety in the Vehicle Industry organised by Flanders Drive presenting the results of the ASIL (“Automotive Safety Integrity Levels”) project.

The ASIL project created a development methodology for safety-critical systems, applicable to any type of vehicle or machine. Specialists involved will share the in-depth expertise acquired and illustrate this with various actual applications. The ASIL workflow was successfully imported in Altreonic's GoedelWorks portal where users can adapt it to integrate it with their own organisational processes.

The seminar focuses on the main challenges and opportunities associated with the systematic application of functional safety standards in system development and project management in the automotive industry. External experts as well as ASIL members will present relevant topics.

Eric Verhulst, CTO of Altreonic will speak of:

Cross-domain systems and safety engineering: is it feasible?

During the presentation, a new approach for developing composable systems with different SIL levels will be presented. It introduces the notion of ARRL (Assured Reliability and Resilience Level). See attached presentation.

Abstract: Why do we have different systems and safety standards for each domain? There are certainly historical reasons that have led to different approaches. And up to today, different standards are still unavoidable for certification reasons. However, the question remains whether it should stay this way. After all, safety concerns us all and good engineering principles are universal. Recent experiences and projects like Flanders DRIVE ASIL and the EU FP7 OPENCOSS project indicate that it is not only feasible but also desirable for technical as well as economic reasons. The speaker will show that the trend towards a unified systems engineering approach is already happening and that recent standards like CENELEC 50128 and DO-178C reflect this. What we see is a transition towards a systematic but highly iterative process whereby process and development artifacts are continuously verified. The future is not only safer but also lean and agile. The economic benefits are competitiveness, efficiency and trustworthy products and systems.

Here, you can register directly.
 
We look forward to welcoming you in Brussels on Thursday 17 January 2013.

For those interested, there was an interesting discussion on LinkedIn on the topic.
