Rasmus AdlerRasmus Adler has been involved in the safety of software-intensive systems since 2006. He initially received his doctorate as a scholarship holder on the topic of "Safety of Adaptive Systems". He then spent several years supporting safety engineering in industrial and research projects and became familiar with safety standards from various domains ("automotive", "automation technology", "railway technology", "medical technology"). In particular, he supported projects with model-based representations of safety artifacts such as hazard and risk analyses, fault tree analyses or safety concepts and their integration into the company-specific model-based development process. Today he leads various projects in the field of safety engineering and researches suitable model-based solutions for the safety engineering of highly automated / autonomous and networked systems
Safety requirements for autonomy of industrial vehicles
Autonomy is a major characteristic of the next generation of industrial vehicles such as off-road loaders, mining machinery, diggers, tractors, cranes and lift-trucks. It is the key to address skills shortage, implement tasks that go beyond human skills, and increase productivity by 24/7 operation. A major issue with the introduction of autonomy is safety. Autonomy requires a paradigm shift in safety engineering and leads to new safety regulation, standards and requirements. What does this mean for suppliers, OEMs and operators of industrial vehicles?
