Apply modeling methods to the technical safety concept.

Automotive Functional Safety Design course provides the best practices in designing safety functions within safety-related systems in modern vehicles, with regards to system design.  It will cover the concepts to prevent and tolerate faults in the system domain and prepare a foundation for hardware and software domains. The focus of this course is on understanding the applicability and limits of methods (formal and non-formal), with emphasis on functional safety. The course will examine how the formal model checking principles can be applied to guarantee soundness and correctness of the technical safety concept and to avoid any of the safety pitfalls.

Through various examples, participants will learn how specific methods can be applied and implemented to fulfill safety requirements in practical vehicle subsystems.

Course Highlights:

  • Technical System Design
  • Safety Analysis and avoidance of Systematic Failures
  • Basics of Formal Methods
  • Model Checking
  • Basics of model-driven system and software development using SysML and UML diagrams
  • Applications of safety analysis in the models

Course Benefits:

  • Devise a Technical Safety Concept according to ISO26262
  • Perform safety analysis on the developed concept or design
  • Apply Formal Model Checking principles and understand pros and cons in contrast to non-formal methods

Course Typically Offered: Live Online during Fall, and Spring quarter 

Prerequisites:  Students should have basic engineering knowledge in either one of the following disciplines: electrical engineering, computer engineering, or mechanical engineering.
