Part of the Proceedings book series (PROCEE)


Safety analysis is an important topic in many different domains in engineering. One of the most important areas where safety assessment plays a major role is the autonomous driving. As a safety-critical domain, the automotive sector heavily needs the tools and techniques to assess the safety level in design phases.
