Webinar: How to Evaluate Hardware Architecture Metrics for Automotive ECUs (Using FMEDA Method)

Webinar: How to Evaluate Hardware Architecture Metrics for Automotive ECUs (Using FMEDA Method)

Fail-Safe Automotive Components = Safety of the ‘Lives on the Road’.

In-order to deliver such fail-safe designs, your Functional-Safety Partner/Engineers should develop an in-depth understanding of ‘how the system may fail’ and the required ‘safe-state’.

The above can be achieved, once you derive the Hardware Architecture Metrics like SPFM, LPFM and PMHF.

We know the metrics that are required. But what about the method to derive them?

FMEDA, an automotive industry accepted method, has got the right set of processes that best suit the derivation of the hardware metrics.

This webinar will showcase a Step-by-Step Flowchart of the entire FMEDA Process. And we will cement the learning of this theory by discussing a real-world FMEDA Project example.

Key Takeaways from the FMEDA Webinar

  1. Terms and Definitions regarding FMEDA
  2. The FMEDA method Flowchart
  3. A Hands-on for FMEDA Analysis
  4. Frequently Asked Questions regarding FMEDA

IoT for Home Automation – Custom Gateway, Cloud and Mobile App

Description

Design and development of IoT Home Automation architecture with following components:

  • Sensor networks – installed to capture data from lights, AC, blinds, AV units, doors, and more
  • Custom IoT gateway device – to connect sensor networks to cloud backend
  • Cloud backend – for data analytics
  • iOS/Android App and web-dashboard – UI and front-end to facilitate human and machine interactions

The system demonstrates:

  • Home automation scenario which comprises sensor networks [lights, AC, blinds, AV units] that interact with mobile app [iOS, Android] or web dashboard via the custom IoT gateways and the cloud, using MQTT.
  • The sensor networks convey a wide range of home device information (temperature, humidity, ambient light, human proximity) that is transmitted over various wireless communication protocols like Infrared, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, EnOcean, Zigbee.
  • This information is broadcast to the cloud for data analytics and data in actionable format is displayed on smart handheld devices for the end-users.

This is how the system works:

  • The custom gateways act as a mediator between the sensor networks and the cloud, providing connectivity, security and control.
  • The cloud backend, built using Python and Django, runs applications that analyze data from the sensor networks to collate and relay valuable information that can be used for decision-making.
  • The interface that gives the end users control of the system is accessible through the app on smart devices [Android, iOS] or web dash-board. The UI provides one-touch control of single or group-actions.

System Architecture – An Overview

IoT-system-architecture

Tools and Technology:

  • Sensor networks designed based on ZigBee, EnOcean, Bluetooth and Wifi protocols/technologies
  • Custom gateway hardware and software design to enable compatibility between sensor networks and end-user devices
  • Design, development and integration of cloud-based SaaS. Data analytics that make predictions possible
  • iOS/Android App and a web dashboard that delivers ‘delight’ to end-users through our intuitive UI/UX

Features (snapshot):

  • The system includes multi-action settings for automation of more than one device for an event
    Sensors that support automation [door sensor, proximity sensors, beacons, etc.] are used to trigger multiple actions. For example, when the proximity sensor detects that you have crossed the range/perimeter, the AC and lights will be switched off, and the blinds will be opened.

  • Date – 9th October, 2014
  • Time – 03:00 PM (CEST)
  • Spoken language – German
  • Recorded Webinar PPT Language : English

 

 

This free of cost webinar on re-use of software in compliance with ISO 26262 standard, is third in series of webinars on Automotive Safety Integrity Level (ASIL) or ISO 26262 standard, organized by Embitel.

The ISO 26262 standard addresses the needs for an automotive-specific international Functional Safety Standard for electrical and electronic (E/E) systems.

The need to comply with ISO 26262 standard is of utmost significance for automotive industry. The number & complexity of E/E systems had increased manifold & hence it is critical to implement all the functional safety measures of these systems.

To ensure high standards of such functional safety it is absolutely critical to identify the opportunity of re-using existing robust software modules/packages or COTS products.
