About this book

The book provides background information about technical solutions, processes and methodology to develop future automated mobility solutions. Beginning from the legal requirements as the minimum tolerable risk level of the society, the book provides state-of-the-art risk-management methodologies. The system engineering approach based on todays engineering best practices enhanced by principles derived from cybernetics. The approach derived from the typical behaviour of a human driver in public road traffic to a cybernetical based system engineering approach. Beyond the system engineering approach, a common behaviour model for the operational domain will show aspects how to extend the system engineering model with principles of cybernetics. The role and the human factors of road traffic participants and drivers of motor vehicles are identified and several viewpoints for different observers show how such mixed traffic scenarios could be assessed and optimised. The influence of the changing mobility demands of the society and the resulting changes to the origination of producer, owner, driver and supplier show aspects for future liability and risk share option for new supply chains. Examples from various industries provide some well-proven engineering principles how to adapt those for the future mobility for the benefit of the users. The aim of the book is to raise awareness that the safety provided by a product, a means of transport or a system up to an entire traffic system depends on the capabilities of the various actors. In addition to the driver and passengers, there are also other road users, maintenance personnel and service providers, who must have certain abilities to act safely in traffic. These are also the capabilities of the organisation, not only the organisation that develops or brings the product to market, but also the organisation that is responsible for the operation and the whole lifecycle of the products.

The book is for people who want to get involved in the mobility of the future. People, that have ideas to become a player who want to help shape the future mobility of society and who want to bring responsible solutions for users into the market.

About the authors

Hans-Leo Ross is currently responsible for vehicle safety at Robert-Bosch Gmbh. After completing his engineering degree at the University of Paderborn, Germany, he planned and implemented safety-relevant plants and systems for the oil and gas industry (e.g. for Preussag-Noell-LGA Gastechnik), as well as for offshore chemical plants. He also worked for HIMA Paul Hildebrandt, where his focus was on the distribution of safety-related control systems in Great Britain and North and Eastern Europe before he became Head of Product Management.

In 2004, he began working for Continental Automotive, where he was responsible for the introduction of functional safety and coordinating safety activities for the entire company. He was also a member of VDA AK 16 and a founding member of WG 16 (the ISO committee for ISO 26262), two committees that developed the essential foundations of functional safety in automobiles.

From 2014 to 2015, he developed safety-related chassis control systems for Mando Corporation Europe as Head of Cross-Functional Development. In this regard, he was tasked with establishing an engineering infrastructure to comply with the requirements of ISO 26262 and led the system and software development for electronic stability and parking brake systems.
