Presentation Title: Building a multi-level safety system for intelligent vehicles
What are you planning to talk about at the Intelligent Safety Conference, and who do you think will benefit most from what you have to say?
The title of my presentation is "Building multi-level safety system for intelligent vehicles". Intelligent vehicles need to solve the problems of functional safety, expected functional safety and information security at the same time. The above three types of safety are inseparable and interrelated. How to look at the safety of intelligent vehicles from a system perspective, and how to design and construct the above three types of safety systems are issues of great concern to the industry. I hope my presentation can help those who are engaged in the design and development of intelligent vehicle systems.
Intelligent safety technology is at the heart of mobility development – how do you see it evolving as ADAS develops into fully autonomous functionality?
With the in-depth integration of "Intelligence", "Internet" and "Vehicles", on the one hand, automotive products have been redefined, and their passenger and cargo functions have been transformed into comprehensive travel services. On the other hand, the automotive industry business models, transportation systems, social experience and other aspects will also usher in huge changes. In this big wave of change, automotive safety will not only include traditional functional safety, but also two aspects: driving safety and value safety (driving safety: influence functional safety through network security; value safety: influence privacy and data through network security security), and cybersecurity technology will also be the cornerstone of the future development, laying basis for the development of intelligent and connected vehicles and their ecology.
".... cybersecurity technology will also be the cornerstone of the future development, laying basis for the development of intelligent and connected vehicles and their ecology".
What other factors do you expect to shape the development of intelligent safety technology? (e.g., legislation or standards, new technology, or changing consumer expectations)
As cybersecurity technology is a typical companion technology, there is no cybersecurity without a carrier, and the cybersecurity we are talking here is targeted at the intelligent and connected vehicles, so the biggest impact on the cybersecurity technology must come from the technical development level, technical architecture, service-oriented groups of intelligent and connected vehicles. Cybersecurity technology is also closely related to policies and regulations. A single technology can’t satisfy security most of the time, and supporting policies and regulations are needed.
What attracts you personally to the area of intelligent safety?
From a purely technical point of view, cybersecurity technology attracts me the most in two ways . One is that it often requires a full understanding of the carrier, including the carrier’s entire system architecture and technical development routes. This will give me a clearer and macroscopic understanding of the entire technical system and industrial development. The other one is that security use the Game Theory. Unlike other technical fields, there are no clear boundaries and indicators for the evaluation of security technology, but only the game between the red and blue sides. It’s a lot of fun.

What advances or changes in intelligent safety would you most like to see implemented in mainstream vehicles?
I hope that in the rapid development of automotive technology, especially intelligent and connected vehicles, security should be considered at the beginning of the research. In this way, it can avoid the "after-installing" of cybersecurity technology, and a systematic security protection architecture for the entire lifecycle could been established starting from the design stage.

About FISITA Intelligent Safety Conference China 2021
Registration is now open so book your place today.
FISITA and China SAE are delighted to confirm that the third annual FISITA Intelligent Safety Conference China will take place 16 July 2021 in Changchun, China, with physical or online participation available to registered participants.
Following highly successful events in 2019 and 2020, FISITA Intelligent Safety Conference 2021 will run as a stand-alone conference for the first time.
The 2021 event will feature keynote speeches and a panel discussion, followed by three parallel technical sessions on the Safety of the Intended Functionality (SOTIF), Cybersecurity and the Impacts of Human Factors on Safety.
The event is co-organised in China by Jilin University and Automotive Innovation and supported by Tsinghua University and the CAICV SOTIF Working Group.
