8th Scandinavian Conference on
SYSTEM & SOFTWARE SAFETY Online Edition, November 24-27, 2020

System and software safety in electronic systems is becoming increasingly central in many industries. Industries are heading towards more and more connected and advanced software-intensive systems. Many organization face the same kind of challenges and sharing experience is essential.

The conference is organized by Addalot and ICES (KTH) and has become the central meeting place for Scandinavian safety experts from different industries. It is an opportunity to share experiences and make new contacts. There will be a plenary overview part split on two days, and a second part with parallel sessions. The parallel sessions will be in depth workshops and tutorials about different challenges, techniques, standards and methods.

The second part includes parallel sessions with in-depth workshops and tutorials about different challenges, techniques, standards and methods. As for the previous years, we anticipate a healthy mixture of participants and presentations from different industries and academia

Holistic safety approach for autonomous on-road freight vehicles

By Pär Degerman, CTO at Einride


The speaker will introduce a holistic safety concept where not only the system is being taken into account. Instead a holistic approach including use case, external risk factors and operational design domain is used. The efficacy of the approach is illustrated by example deployments showing that development of complex systems can be made with lesser effort but with fully sustained safety. As required by a fast moving company working with safety critical systems and products.

Sue me! Legal responsibility for highly autonomous systems

By Gregor Noll, Proffessor Göteborg University


The point of autonomous systems is to liberate humans from complex tasks, including the taking of decisions. The taking of decisions usually comes with legal responsibility, and any delegation of tasks to autonomous systems raises the question how and where this responsibility is to be allocated. The proper functioning of certain fields of law, such as criminal law, requires that decisions of autonomous systems can be rationally reconstructed by humans. The more autonomous a system acts, the less can we expect that it is open to rational reconstruction by the human deciding on its use. Using examples from various industries and sectors, I shall outline why this is so and reflect whether there are any remedies for this dilemma, allowing the operation of autonomous systems under the rule of law.e.
