High integrity system for ensuring safety of automated driving features

Reference number
Coordinator Volvo Technology AB - BF75000 M1.7
Funding from Vinnova SEK 5 850 000
Project duration October 2018 - December 2022
Status Ongoing
Venture Traffic safety and automated vehicles -FFI

Purpose and goal

The goal with the project is to develop a concept for removing safety-criticality from as much software as possible. The hypothesis is that this can be done through separation of safety assurance and other decisions. The desired outcome is to have a defined safety concept which is scalable to different operational design domains and a strategy for how to validate and verify a system implementing the safety concept.

Expected results and effects

The main expectations include a proof of concept for a safe state framework that enables an agile way of working with behavioural features (i.e. “the driving”). That is, how the safety of the system is separated and verified separately.

Planned approach and implementation

The work is intended to be carried out as the typical industrial PhD-candidate project, i.e. firstly doing a literature survey and determining promising concepts, secondly these concepts are tested and validated in a realistic environment to reach TRL 5. On the road, problems with solutions unknown to man-kind shall be encountered, overcome, patented and published by the research team.

The project description has been provided by the project members themselves and the text has not been looked at by our editors.
