SafeTRANS harmonizes and aligns project results between internal and external stakeholders, and identifies and supports standardization opportunities

SafeTRANS is a German Competence Cluster combining research and development expertise in the area of Complex Embedded and Cyber-Physical Systems. Among the members of this non-profit organization are key stakeholders from the Automotive, Avionics and Railway domain, SMEs supporting the development process for safe transportation systems, as well as numerous research institutes and universities with a track record of technology transfer in this area.

SafeTRANS develops R&D roadmaps, most recently on “Safety, Security and Certification for Future Man-Machine Systems”, which offers a structured classification of capabilities of future CPS for the first time.

SafeTRANS ensures a harmonization of national R&D priorities as well as their dissemination to the relevant European R&D programs (ARTEMIS/ECSEL, Horizon 2020, ITEA, ...). Additionally, SafeTRANS is highly active in project incubation, providing a platform in which stakeholders from all over Europe can harmonize their ideas and needs for future R&D projects, find consortium partners and prepare project proposals. SafeTRANS is active in resp. coordinates Advisory Boards of several national and international projects. Last, but not least, SafeTRANS pushes standardization activities for emerging and pre-standards in the area of CPS.

SafeTRANS will be the main interface between the project and the External Advisory Board. As such, SafeTRANS will use its extensive network, its membership in several existing and planned Advisory Boards of national and European R&D projects, as well as its contacts to certification bodies and standardization organizations, to identify stakeholders, derive a stakeholder involvement strategy, set up the External Advisory Board, perform workshops and knowledge sharing activities with them and coordinate feedback management into the project, thus harmonizing ArchitectECA2030 results within a large community effort aiming at validation and certification of highly automated and autonomous cars. Second, SafeTRANS will also support standardization activities within the project.

As a competence network active in knowledge generation and sharing for processes and methods for the development and validation of highly automated transportation systems, SafeTRANS is active in many projects that contribute to a globally harmonized certification/homologation process for autonomous cars. ArchitectECA2030 will contribute significantly to this effort by devising solutions to various open challenges within such a process. SafeTRANS will harmonize these results with members of the External Advisory Board and various other Stakeholders, also ensuring that there is no parallel development and waste of efforts.

SafeTRANS will introduce the resulting process definitions in various roadmaps as well as a basis for further project incubation. SafeTRANS will also, where necessary and beneficial, support standardization activities for these results, most importantly into the SOTIF Standard.
