Safety assurance framework for connected automated mobility systems

SUNRISE is about safety proof of cooperative, connected and automated mobility (CCAM) systems. The aim is to develop and provide a harmonized and scalable CCAM Safety Assurance Framework.

Automated vehicles must be reliable in all conceivable driving scenarios. This requires a strong security argument, which remains a major challenge. Several initiatives are working to develop test and assessment methods for CCAM systems based on a scenario-based approach, combining both physical and virtual testing. Although the automotive industry generally seems to agree on this overall approach, the current situation leads to silo solutions, which prevents large-scale introduction into society. SUNRISE aims to create a common CCAM safety assurance framework that connects silos and makes them work together in a harmonized way.

This will be achieved by:

  1. Include the needs of heterogeneous CCAM use cases.
  2. Define a scenario-based database framework that builds on the HEADSTART approach.
  3. Holistically address the generation of the CCAM test scenario.
  4. Prepare necessary tools for extensive testing (virtual and physical), considering robustness, scalability, interoperability, quality and standardization.
  5. Integrate system safety, functional safety and cyber security.

The project will define, implement and demonstrate the building blocks of this safety argumentation framework: harmonized and scalable methods for safety assessment, procedures and metrics tailored to use cases, a federated framework for a European scenario database and its necessary data interfaces, a commonly agreed simulation framework including tools and interfaces. SUNRISE will work closely with CCAM stakeholders such as policy makers, regulators, consumer testers, user associations and all relevant stakeholders.
