Adaptation Mechanisms for Electronic Architectures of Fully Electric Vehicles

Nowadays, automotive systems are facing a revolutionary era full of changes for the traditional automotive domain. New trends such as autonomous driving or full electric vehicles request a complete new approach to the design. The ISO 26262 automotive functional safety standard has been introduced in the market to provide guidelines and accepted best practices for the safety design of the electric/electronic systems on board. It pushes the whole industry to improve their systems regarding safety and dependability.

Looking for Safer Autonomous Vehicles using Fault Injection

Autonomous vehicle technology has the potential to redefine the automotive world and will definitely bring major benefits for road safety, emissions and congestions. With the growth of control complexity and the reduction of the driver’s role, many challenges arise with respect to the safety and controllability risk assessment of these vehicles.

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.
