The project's goal is to develop existing and new quantitative methods and tools for analysing and dimensioning the safety of systems in vehicles.
The focus of the project is to develop quantitative methods for safety and reliability analysis. The goal is to enable the inclusion of safety as part of concept design and dimensioning of the architecture of E/E systems for heavy vehicles. For this purpose, the project will develop methods and a stochastic modelling tool that also uses input from collected field data. The project intends to develop methods which are suitable for analysing the safety of new technologies, including autonomous driving and connected vehicles.
SafeDim is a collaboration between Scania, KTH and RISE. The project is led by Scania, where research engineers in the project will work closely with product development teams, which are the intended users of the final results of the project. KTH will contribute with a doctoral position. RISE will have a minor role in the project to investigate the methods developed by the project in relation to the standards ISO 26262, IEC 61508 and ISO 21448.
