The Sunrise Project (safety assurance framework for connected, automated mobility systems)

Validation methods and testing procedures still lack the appropriate safety assessment criteria needed to build a robust safety case. These must be set and must be valid for the comprehensive scenario parameter space. The potential of encountering different approximations per global region adds an additional level of complexity. Evolving from the achievements obtained in HEADSTART and taking other initiatives as a baseline, it is necessary to move to the next level in the concrete specification and demonstration of a commonly accepted safety assurance framework (SAF) for the safety validation of CCAM systems.
