At the Mechatronics division at KTH we address challenges posed by future Cyber-Physical Systems and specifically

with their incarnation in terms of various types of automated machines including highly Automated Vehicles (AVs).

In research we are interested in questions like;

– what makes a compelling, comprehensible and valid safety case for a highly automated vehicle?

– what makes an appropriate reference architecture for AVs that could be instantiated for different types of AVs, providing capabilities to ensure cost-efficient risk reduction and the right balance between availability/safety

– what represents an appropriate methodology for model-based evaluation of highly automated vehicles?


With these questions as a starting point, this talk will provide

  • a view on trends in AV safety and architecting with impressions from recent industrial meetings and conferences (including OSS.5 and The Autonomous),
  • an overview and glimpses of ongoing research at the Mechatronics division at KTH on automated vehicle safety, including
    • an update on the AD-EYE simulation platform
    • ongoing work in system formalization to support verification, with recent findings from a survey of methods to derive critical scenarios,
    • safety supervisor architectures, from functional safety concepts to technical architectures
