SUNRISE: Safety assurance framework for connected and automated mobility systems

Safety assurance of Cooperative, Connected, and Automated Mobility (CCAM) systems, is a crucial factor for their successful adoption and deployment in society. This requires a strong safety argumentation, which remains a significant challenge worldwide. Automotive stakeholders generally seem to agree on applying a scenario based approach. But the wide variety of individual initiatives in this field, is tending to silo solutions. The lack of a common approach hampers the large-scale and safe introduction of CCAM systems in our society. It is for these reasons that the SUNRISE project has been initiated, aiming to establish a common Safety Assurance Framework.
