Event: FISITA Intelligent Safety Conference China. 16 July Changchun, China and online
Name: Dr. Adrian Zlocki, Head of Automated Driving
Company: fka GmbH
Presentation Title: Methodology and Data for Scenario-based Validation of Safety for Automated Driving
Session: Safety of the Intended Functionality (SOTIF)
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?
My main focus will be a deep dive into scenarios for safety assurance of ADS. How are scenarios designed, what data sources are used for scenarios? How can they be applied in the overall process?
I believe that scenario-based testing is currently the state of the art. So, everybody, who is involved in test scenarios can/should be interested in this presentation.
Intelligent safety technology is at the heart of mobility development – how do you see it evolving as ADAS develops into fully autonomous functionality?
Currently the main research questions are on safety assurance for further autonomous functionalities. The presentation provides inside into the work out of the PEGASUS project to implement new safety assurance methods. Once we reach this goal, fully autonomous driving can become reality in the future.
"Today we have too many buttons, feedbacks, elements etc. which are not clear to all customers at any time. With intelligent vehicles this is getting worse and seems to make intelligent safety less intelligent".
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)
The role of the society and the discussion on advantages and risks (of AD related to safety) on society level is for me an important factor for the market introduction.
What attracts you personally to the area of intelligent safety?
Helping to increase vehicle safety and in the end save lives.
What advances or changes in intelligent safety would you most like to see implemented in mainstream vehicles?
Improved HMI concepts. Today we have too many buttons, feedbacks, elements etc. which are not clear to all customers at any time. With intelligent vehicles this is getting worse and seems to make intelligent safety less intelligent, although the new functions are great.
