Presented at Safetronic.2020
As we move towards fully automated driving use cases, requiring fail-operational behavior of the system, we suggest building solutions based on a proven, software-defined, highly modular and highly integrated platform. This software platform is based on built in functional safety, real-time orchestration and seamless integration of application software – that way contributing to get the complexity of highly/fully automated driving use cases under control.
The complexity of building fail-operational, hard real-time systems for highly/fully automated driving
As a functional safety expert and the director of the Lead Engineering & Safety Team at TTTech Auto, Eric Schmidt is steering the functional safety design and processes according to the ISO 26262 standard for advanced automated driving projects. Working alongside our customers in this multi-disciplinary domain, Eric is responsible for the conceptualization and execution of TTTech Auto’s safety by design approach to streamline the safety process. This approach resulted in the first ASIL D certified platform, developed according to the ISO 26262 standard on the market.
Over the course of his career, he has accumulated vast knowledge and experience in functional safety related development, e.g. by being part of the first implementation of the “3 Level E-gas concept”. Eric joined the TTTech Group in 2003.
