Sabotage: A Simulation-Based Fault Injection Tool Framework

As automated driving vehicles become more sophisticated and pervasive, it is increasingly important to assure its safety even in the presence of faults. Fault Injection (FI) has been recognized as a potentially powerful technique for the safety assessment and corner-case validation of fault-tolerance mechanisms in automated driving systems. The major aim of performing FI is not to validate functionality, but rather to probe how robust the vehicle is−or their components are−to arbitrary faults under unforeseen circumstances.

AMASS project kick-off meeting

AMASS (Architecture-driven, Multi-concern and Seamless Assurance and Certification of Cyber-Physical Systems) is a H2020-ECSEL project. AMASS will create and consolidate the de-facto European-wide open tool platform, ecosystem, and self-sustainable community for assurance and certification of cyber-physical systems (CPS) in the largest industrial vertical markets. The project started on April 1st and the kick-off meeting took place in Bilbao on April 6th and 7th. The meeting was hosted by TECNALIA Research & Innovation, specifically by the ICT-European Software Institute Division.
