Safeguaring Automobile Software
MES to hold a panel discussion with experts at the Tech Takeover at Automation Alley on October 2, 2019 in Detroit, MI, USA.
Dr. Heiko Dörr, CEO of Model Engineering Solutions (MES), will hold a panel discussion on the subject of "Safe Automotive Software Development: OEM / Industrial Perspective" with experts from the American automotive industry, Ford, FCA, kVA, and dSPACE. The panel discussion will take place on October 2, 2019 in Detroit, MI, USA as part of the Tech Takeover organized by Automation Alley.
Software and Safety - Perspectives from the Automotive Industry
Software in vehicles today is already more complex than in aeroplanes. With the expansion of ADAS, electrification, and automonous driving amongst others, the pace of adding new software is accelerating dramatically. Recent high-profile news reports and lawsuits have made it clear that existing automotive software faces the risk of potential errors. Consequently, the demand for dedicated development processes directed at high quality is ever growing.
At the Tech Takeover, experts from the automotive software development field convene to discuss safety relevant applications. The event provides direction and insights on how development organizations can address the risks of embedded software in safety relevant applications. Participants will learn how projects could establish development methods in order to implement best practices.
