Upon successful completion of this training workshop, you will be able to:

  • Understand the fundamentals of SOTIF according to the ISO 21448 framework in order to comprehend and construct development processes for ADAS and AV systems that achieve SOTIF

  • Perform hazard analysis and risk assessment in accordance with ISO 21448, including definition of acceptance criteria for validation of ADAS and AV systems

  • Analyze systems with respect to both triggering conditions and functional insufficiencies, and derive scenario testing to fully develop and verify performance in the face of such conditions

  • Develop a verification and validation strategy to address both known and unknown hazardous scenarios through a combination of testing methods and techniques applied at the system level and vehicle level

  • Understand the role of simulation, vehicle scenario test and vehicle field/fleet test in the creation of a complete verification and validation argument

This 2.5-day training course establishes guiding principles and practical best-practices for autonomous vehicle safety as described in the ISO 21448 standard – “Road vehicles – Safety of the intended functionality.”

The course agenda closely aligns to the ISO 21448 standard, and the relevant certification is for autonomous and semi-autonomous (or ‘automated driver assist’) systems, ranging from Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) autonomy levels 1-5. Several group exercises and work examples are included to illustrate key concepts on relevant real-world automotive technologies and systems.

Training topics

  • Introduction to advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous vehicles (AV)
  • Safety of the Intended Function (SOTIF)
  • The ISO 21448 framework for SOTIF
  • ADAS and AV system specification and design
  • Hazard identification and risk analysis
  • Acceptance criteria, validation targets and validation effort using rationale such as:
    • Globalement au moins aussi bon or “globally at least as good” (GAMAB)
    • “As low as reasonably practicable” (ALARP)
    • “Minimal endogenous mortality” (MEM)
  • Analysis of functional insufficiencies and triggering conditions using various methods such as failure modes and effects analysis (FMEA), fault tree analysis (FTA), and systems theoretic process analysis (STPA)
  • Functional modifications to reduce SOTIF risks
  • Developing a complete verification and validation strategy
  • Verification: evaluating known hazardous scenarios using scenario testing at the system and vehicle levels
  • Validation: evaluating unknown hazardous scenarios using simulation and test
  • Defining a criteria for SOTIF release and the associated SOTIF release process
  • Operating phase activities necessary for post-release implementation in the field
  • An introduction to other relevant safety standards in ADAS and AV
  • Process-oriented requirements for safety development processes
  • Wrap-up and discussion topics
Target audience
  • AV hardware and software developers
  • Simulation engineers working with ADAS and AV verification
  • Test and validation engineers
  • Project and product leaders
  • Compliance engineers

Optional UL Certified Autonomy Safety Professional Exam

Participants who complete the full 2.5-day of training are eligible to take a two-hour certification exam in the afternoon of the third day.

Those who pass the exam are individually certified as a UL Certified Autonomy Safety Professional (UL-CASP) in ISO 21448.

Upon the successful completion of the UL-CASP exam, participants will receive a certificate and badge that they can use to demonstrate their competence in the ISO 21448 AV safety standard.

The certification is good for three years, after which individuals may recertify.
