“China SAE strives to promote collaborative innovation in the automotive industry and to develop solutions for autonomous driving safety connecting all industries. This helps to build basis for ISC.”
Nadine Leclair, President of FISITA, Chair of FISITA Intelligent Safety Working Group (online)
“Sharing the latest technology worldwide is increasingly important, and the ISC will strengthen ties between safety experts around the world to explore solutions to make autonomous vehicles safer and more reliable through technology exchange.”
Chris Mason, CEO of FISITA (online)
“ISC is an international technical platform jointly built by FISITA and China SAE, aiming to bring together elites from all walks of life in the automotive industry, and academia to explore intelligent safety solutions for future mobility.”
Prof. Zhenhai Gao, Dean of College of Automotive Engineering, Jilin University, Director of State Key Laboratory of Automotive Simulation and Control
“The international technology exchange platform is of great importance in guiding and leading independent innovation in the Chinese automotive industry.”
Dr. Hongjian Li, VP of FAW R&D Institute, Director of State Key Laboratory of Comprehensive Technology on Automobile Vibration and Noise & Safety Control
“State Key Laboratory of Comprehensive Technology on Automobile Vibration and Noise & Safety Control of FAW will play a more active role in promoting academic progress and collaboration within the industry.”
Moderator: Prof. Mike Ma, Technical Advisor of FISITA, Professor of Jilin University, Executive Editor-in-Chief of Automotive Innovation
Prof. Hsin Guan, Vice President of China SAE, Professor of Jilin University, gave a speech entitled: An evaluation method of driving intelligence for automated driving vehicles. Prof. Guan said that the current social acceptance of automated driving systems is not high, mainly because of the inconsistent behavior of machine drivers and human drivers. He said that autonomous driving systems should focus on achieving humanoid intelligence and personalization of driving behavior, and that humanoid intelligent autonomous driving systems have the potential to significantly reduce costs.
Dominik Schuster, VP Vehicle Safety, BMW Group, gave a speech entitled 'The future of vehicle safety - a paradigm shift from "what" to "how and why"'. Dominik Schuster said that traditional passive safety only solves the problem of “what”, but with the continuous development of autonomous driving, we need to shift our thinking to solve the problem of "how and why".
Dan Li, VP of FAW R&D Institute, Director of ICV Department, FAW, gave a speech entitled: Safety and security technology strategy and innovative applications of Hongqi Brand. Mr. Li firstly introduced the 8 technology trends in the automotive industry and the current issues they are facing in terms of functional security, SOTIF, cybersecurity and data security, and he introduced their response strategies from the strategic design and technical level.
Prof. Lutz Eckstein, Director of Institute for Automotive Engineering, RWTH Aachen University talked about: Insights into automated driving research. He shared the concept and composition of the user center as well as the update of the corresponding basic design.
Panel Discussion: How to ensure the safety of L3/L4 automated vehicles?

SOTIF is closely related to the safety of the software and algorithms of autonomous driving. Safety of the Intended Functionality (SOTIF) refers to the absence of unreasonable risk due to hazards resulting from functional insufficiencies of the intended functionality or by reasonably foreseeable misuse by persons. SOTIF Session shared ideas related to SOTIF system, safety AI algorithm, scenario database construction, safety evaluation technology, road testing and ISO/DIS 21448.
Dr. Hong Wang, Associate Research Professor at the School of Vehicle and Mobility, Tsinghua University, and Deputy Executive Director, CAICV-SOTIF Technical Alliance, and Dr. Bolin Gao, Associate Research Professor at the School of Vehicle and Mobility, Tsinghua University, and Deputy Secretary General of the Youth Committee of China SAE, co-chaired the session. Speakers include Prof. Hong Cheng from University of Electronic Science and Technology, Stanislav Lincer, Functional Safety & Cybersecurity Director, Great Wall Motor, Pascal Chaussis, Safety Expert of Renault Group (online), Stefan de Vries, Project Manager & Business Developer, Connected and Automated Vehicles, Applus IDIADA (online), Rainer Hoffmann, CSO, Shanghai Digauto Automobile Technology, Dr. Adrian Zlocki, Head of Autonomous Driving of fka GmbH (online), and Dr. Shulian Zhao, Director of Data and Simulation Department, CACI Intelligent Network Technology Co. Ltd.
In response to the increasingly prominent cybersecurity issues, cybersecurity experts from industry and research institutes exchanged ideas on automotive cybersecurity challenges, multi-level security systems, penetration testing systems, cybersecurity practices, security detection and response technologies for L4-level autonomous driving, and safe automotive software development process based on ISO/SAE 21434.
This session was co-chaired by Dr. Hongxing Hu, CTO Cybersecurity, China Automotive Innovation Co., Ltd., and Dr. Bosong Zou from China Software Testing Center.

Impacts of Human Factors on Safety Session
As the level of autonomous driving continues to increase, human factors safety, including human perception, behavior, and HMI, is of increasing concern. Human Factors Safety ensures safer driving and more effective communication between humans and vehicles. What kind of HMI solutions can make driving safer and enhance user experience? These questions were discussed in this session.
This session was co-chaired by Prof. Xinjie Zhang, Vice Director of State Key Laboratory of Automotive Simulation and Control, Professor of Jilin University and Prof. Fang Chen, Chief Consultant of HMI Design, China FAW Group.
