An Approach Toward SOTIF with ANSYS medini analyze

While functional safety standards (e.g., ISO 262626) address hazards that are caused by malfunctioning electrical/electronic (E/E) systems, it doesn’t cover other hazards that can occur in the absence of system failure. One additional cause of hazards could be performance limitations of the system or its components (e.g., sensors).

The new ISO PAS 21448 standard on safety of the intended functionality (SOTIF) deals with the systematic identification, evaluation and subsequent risk mitigation of these hazards. SOTIF issues are especially important for advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous vehicle (AV) systems, and may be caused, for example, by misperceptions of sensing systems or misinterpretation by artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms.

In this on-demand webinar, we will introduce the SOTIF domain and illustrate how our safety analysis tool — medini analyze — can perform SOTIF-related analysis of E/E systems.
