University Lectures

Here the Functional Safety lectures programs and the profiles of the exida’s persons who are delivering them at some of the most prestigious German Universities.

 

Florian Bogenberger

Florian Bogenberger is giving the part functional safety for the lecture “Driver Assistance Systems and Functional Safety” at the HM (University of Applied Sciences, Munich) in the department of Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Markus Krug, which belongs to FK 03 Mechanical, Automotive and Aeronautical Engineering. While the automotive industry is progressing towards Autonomous Driving this new technology has an intrinsic core requirement to be safe – hence this lecture on functional safety has been set up in synchronization with driver assistance.  This is an elective course of 4 semester hours, 2 of which are covered by functional safety. The structure of the lecture is related to practice and involves concrete examples from the automotive domain. The lecture not only introduces requirements of ISO 26262 but also explains how the requirements can be fulfilled.

Learning goals

  • Cross-industry overview of functional safety
  • Introduction to safety standards
  • Key techniques for ensuring functional safety
  • Knowledge of development life cycles for safety-critical systems

Content

  • Introduction – Driver Assistance & Functional Safety
  • Basic Concepts of Functional Safety
  • Safety Design Patterns
  • Functional Safety in HW and SW
  • Functional Safety on System Level
  • Processes
  • Methods for Development and Verification
  • Safety Analysis
  • Requirement Engineering & Management
  • Basics of Safety Management

Tim Jones

Tim Jones is giving a lecture on functional safety at the TH Nuremberg (Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Precision Engineering and Information Technology) which is an elective course of 2 semester hours. The structure of the lecture is related to practice and involves concrete examples from specific industries, such as the medical or the automotive domain. The lecture not only introduces requirements of various standards and regulations but also explains how the requirements can be fulfilled.

Christian Krupke

The university of applied sciences in Augsburg offers the master degree program “Industrial Security and Safety”. The Bavarian-wide unique course of study is offered in an interdisciplinary manner by the faculties of electrical engineering, computer science and economics and is aimed at graduates of technical and information engineering bachelor's degree programs as well as economics courses with a technical focus. Within three semesters, students acquire the skills to solve security problems in the field of industrial automation and control systems as well as critical infrastructure across disciplines. The main topics of the highly practice-oriented study program range from IT security and data protection to functional safety, IT law and employee management.

Since 2017 Mr. Krupke is part of this master degree program as a lecturer in “Functional Safety according to IEC 61508”. Each winter semester he educates the students in the standard IEC 61508 so that they get a basic understanding of the following main topics:

  • Functional Safety Management (FSM)
  • Life cycle model - from concept to risk and risk analysis until decommissioning
  • Implementation of IEC 61508 at the system
  • Functional and technical safety concept
  • Safe Hardware design (systematic capability, architecture) and Proven in Use considerations
  • Failure Mode Effect and Diagnostic Analysis (FMEDA) and calculation of the probability of a failure
  • Safe SW design (systematic capability)
  • Verification and Validation measures
