SafeAdapt develops novel architecture concepts based on adaptation to address the needs of a new E/E architecture for fully electric vehicles regarding safety, reliability and cost-efficiency. These concepts will reduce the complexity of the system by generic, system-wide fault and adaptation handling. Through this, extended reliability despite failures, improvements of active safety and optimized resources are enabled.

SafeAdapt follows a holistic approach for building adaptable systems in safety-critical environments. This ranges from tool chain support, reference architectures, modelling of system design and validation & verification. The technical approach builds on a core component, encapsulating basic adaptation mechanisms for re-allocating and updating functionalities in networked systems. Functional safety is considered with respect to ISO 26262. SafeAdapt will be the basis for an interoperable and standardized solution for adaptation and fault handling aligned with AUTOSAR.
