„ISO 26262 - Safety Analysis (2021)“

Functional safety is gaining importance across different industries. The new standard ISO26262​​ together with product liability enforce a professional implementation of Functional Safety​​. Today we're back with another very interesting topic, SafetyAnalysis​. We often get a lot of questions like, why is safety analysis important? What is the purpose of safety analysis? What is the unreasonable risk? And so on.

That's why we invite two of our beloved colleagues, Praveen Suvarna and Phalgun Upadhyaya to answer your questions.

In this video, we will explain what Safety Analysis methods we use frequently, 2 ways to conduct a safety analysis, inductive safety analysis, deductive safety analysis, 4 steps in FMEA (Failure Mode and Effects Analysis), and 4 steps in FTA (Fault Tree Analysis).

„Toward Autonomous Safety with Hans-Leo Ross (2020)“

Guess who's back in Matrickz Tech Talk today? The legendary functional safety expert Hans-Leo Ross!

Anyone who's looking for amazing literature that really comprehensive about ISO 26262 - Functional Safety in Automotive would know about Hans-Leo Ross's books.

- Funktionale Sicherheit im Automobil
- Functional Safety for Road Vehicles
- Safety for Future Transport and mobility

We have 16 years of history when it comes to ISO 26262, especially in the past decade, the automotive industry has gone through massive changes.

One we talked a great deal about is the electrification of vehicles, we will have autonomous vehicles, and we will have connected vehicles.

All these technologies will change the landscape forever!

Is ISO 26262 - the functional safety standard is the right answer for all these?

What do we need in order to adapt to the upcoming disruptions in the industry?

In this episode, Leo showed us the birth certificate of ISO 26262 and we talked about autonomous safety, the future of mobility, the safety aspect of transportation, and many more!

Watch the video until the end!

„Testing Scenarios of Autonomous Vehicles (2020)“

We have heard requirements like we need ten trillion miles of data, billions of situations that we have to cover before deploying autonomous vehicles in the street. We are gonna need an enormous amount of testing.

Besides that, we want to test the corner cases, edge cases and that's not ethical to try out with the human driver, and we are also risking the entire environment.

In terms of edge cases, it is not even possible to replicate that without putting people's lives in danger.

So the only way we can handle those is by simulating.

In this episode, Our CEO Dr. Hasan Ibne Akram, and Roy Fridman, VP Business Development & Sales of Foretellix Ltd will talk more about Testing Scenarios of Autonomous Vehicles.

„Autonomous Vehicle System Sensors (2020)“

The main challenge in the autonomous vehicle industry is that we try to replace the human driver with the machine or software. Many technologies have been created to help us make this happen, one of them is the system sensor.

Sensors such as LiDar, Radar, cameras have a very important role, which is to function as the eye of an autonomous vehicle. Much like human drivers, autonomous vehicles rely on optical sensors to understand their environment and identify hazards.

One such challenge is when a sensor’s view of the world becomes obscured by water or dirt. This seems to be a very challenging task for LiDARs which need to differentiate between a real object beyond the LiDAR, and elements that are right on the LiDAR window.

Miss-detection would lead to a lack of availability, and false detection would lead to overuse of the cleaning system, which might become unavailable when really needed.

In this video, Our CEO Dr. Hasan Ibne Akram, and Tom Jellicoe, Consultant - Sensors & Devices at TTP plc will talk more about the sensor system, LiDAR, sensor cleaning technology, the safety aspect of it, etc.
