Purpose and goal
BeSafe project aims to lay the foundation for benchmarking functional safety of automotive E/E systems. A common way of evaluating functional safety will improve the industry´s ability to provide safer vehicles. Benchmarking is also a way of evaluating to what extent the expected requirements of a system have been fulfilled. Consequently, benchmarking functional safety will be a valuable help in evaluating the fulfillment of safety goals and safety requirements.
Results and expected effects
BeSafe has contributed to further development of the security field by identifying benchmark targets, benchmark measures, and develop a methodology to efficiently and reliably perform such measures. A standardized and reliable way for benchmarking functional safety will improve the industry´s ability to rapidly provide safer, more environmentally friendly and more energy efficient vehicles.
Approach and implementation
The project is divided into the following work packages: WP 1 defines overall goals, state of the art analysis, investigation of needs and requirements, use cases for benchmarking and benchmark targets (BT). In WP 2 The measures to be collected for the chosen elements/benchmark targets are defined. Here, we also have the definition of assessment techniques for providing values of the defined measures, faultload and workload. WP3 defines the overall methodology for how to the use benchmark results. WP 4 handles verification and validation of the requirements defined in WP 1.
