DAY 2 - Wednesday November 23, 2022

Time Workshops
0815-0830 Day 2 introduction

Keynote: Software System Design for the Connected Vehicle, Christina Rux, WirelessCar

0930-1230 Morning Workshops
Workshop 1:

Managing continuous assurance of complex dependable systems. Fredrik Warg RISE.

Systems where safety and cybersecurity assurance is vital are increasing in complexity amid a growing business demand for faster update cycles. These systems further typically include machine learning elements, an area where establishing assurance methods are work-in-progress. Several methods are proposed in literature, including design-time methods (e.g., safety-contract based design) and run-time techniques (e.g., safety supervisors). The FFI research project SALIENCE4CAV fucuses on continuous assurance for road vehicles and collaborative vehicles in confined areas. We will discuss the suitability of the existing assurance methods, including the use of safety contracts and quantitative risk acceptance criteria, as well as possibilities and obstacles for their industry adoption.

Workshop 2:

Understanding CPS Trustworthiness, 
Muhammad Rusyadi Ramli, KTH

Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), such as most contemporary vehicles and machinery, are evolving to become smarter, more autonomous, connected and collaborating. Provided with unprecedented capabilities, CPS also represent unprecedented complexity and bring new risks that go beyond classical dependability. In paving the way for such more capable and complex CPS, it is essential that trustworthiness is considered and incorporated during the CPS life cycle. This refers to both technical trustworthiness attributes (such as safety, reliability, availability and security), and social considerations (such as ethics, transparency and privacy). This workshop will introduce the current state-of-the-art and a novel trustworthiness framework. We hope to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to discuss and analyse existing methods and challenges related to trustworthiness and CPS.

1230-1300 Lunch at Lindholmen's Resto (Lindholmspiren 5)
1330-1630 Afternoon Workshops
Workshop 3:

Embracing complexity of Systems-of-Systems using Model-Based Risk Assessment and Safety Analysis (MBRASA), Tom Strandberg and Heike Schneider, Syntell
Given the trends of connectivity and autonomy, a current challenge is to ensure safety among multiple vehicles or machines, so called systems-of-systems, where parts of the end-to-end function reside in the edge and where communication is done wirelessly. Based on such extended systems definition, the hazard and risk analysis need to be extrapolated to ensure trustworthiness for the extended scope. The purpose of this workshop is to present and obtain feedback on the evolution of the model-based approach to risk assessment and safety analysis (MBRASA) of systems-of-systems that was the topic of a workshop at SCSSS2021.

Workshop 4:

Automated and connected driving and the promises and challenges of cellular technology for systems of systems,
Martin Törngren, KTH

The complexity of the tasks that Automated Vehicles (AV) have to deal with have been grossly underestimated. To deliver the promises of trustworthy highly performing automated driving services, AV design and operation has to provide self- and environmental awareness, deal with uncertainty and manage risks in run-time, while dealing with cybersecurity threats and unknowns. Connectivity and collaboration bears promises to solve many of these concerns, but also introduce new safety and cybersecurity challenges. The workshop will be interactive to stimulate discussions, examining these challenges. Ongoing research at KTH will also be presented including the PERCy project and the KTH-based TECoSA research center.
