Speakers & Abstract

“CyberSafety for industrial digitalization”

Anton Alexeev, in Helsinki

Rizwan Asif, in Gothenburg and Copenhagen

The presentation discusses about the emerging need for integration of safety & security disciplines in system development. What are the practical implications for the approach in system lifecycle? What security means to safety and what safety means to security? Additionally, the presentation highlights the new regulation and standardization enforcing the integration of safety and security.

Anton Alexeev is leading Functional Safety expert and lead architect of Huld’s pioneering CyberSafety – competence and services.

Anton has long experience in various domains such as Aerospace & Defense, Safety Critical Software, Automotive

and Embedded Software Development. Anton’s has strong proficiency in risk assessment, systems engineering, V&V, requirements management, and project management. Anton has been working with IEC 61508, IEC 61511, ISO 26262, ISO 13849, IEC 62061, EN 5012x and IEC 62443.

Rizwan Asif is a solutions architect at Huld’s CyberSafety team. Rizwan has a background in robotics & autonomous systems. His contributions include Functional Management of Safety Critical Software, Automotive, UAVs and IoT. Rizwan has proficiency in risk assessment, risk reduction strategies and functional software testing. Rizwan has been working with IEC 61508, ISO 26262, ISO 13849, and IEC 62443.

“Fault detection and recovery in mixed-critical systems on Arm Cortex-M”

Vladimir Marchenko Product Manager at Arm Ltd.

Abstract: This presentation explains how Arm Run- Time System for functional safety {FuSa RTS) utilizes capabilities of Cortex-M CPUs and so enables building systems with different safety levels and recovery from non-critical faults.

Vladimir Marchenko is a Product Manager at Arm covering software development solutions for Cortex-M cores, such as Keil MDK and FuSa RTS. Prior to Arm, Vladimir worked with embedded software systems in various product management and engineering roles at OEM and semiconductor companies.

“Maximizing FuSa standards compliant software test automation”

Matt Davis, Managing Director, QA-Systems Ltd.

Short description:

  • Automating test framework set-up and configuration
  • Automatic test case generation from code
  • The role of requirements traceability evidence
  • Test tool certification & qualification

Matt Davis started his professional career as a qualified software auditor at a software house. He worked for 5 years on multi-million pound projects from business critical telecoms to safety critical systems.

Since 1996 he developed and globally marketed embedded unit and integration testing solutions for a diverse range of business safety-critical customers. He has been the Managing Director of QA Systems Ltd since 2015.

“Certified functional safety: meaning, role, and how to achieve it”

Thomas Maier, TUV SÜD


  • Assessment of functional safety as required in standards (IEC 61508, ISO 26262, ISO 13849)
  • Certification as demanded by regulations and
  • Typical FuSa certification procedure Initiation
    • Activities and deliverables expected from certification customer.
    • Tasks and deliverables provided by
    • Cooperation between certifier and customer
    • Common challenges, pitfalls, and tips for success

Thomas Maier, Business Development Manager at TÜV SÜD.

20+ years experience. Active member of IEC standardization working groups (Maintenance of IEC 61508, IEC 61800-5-2 1st Ed, Merging of ISO 13849 and IEC 62061, ISO 26262 2nd Ed).

Getting more out of your debugger: “Minimal-overhead code coverage and qualified instruction set simulation”

Daniel Orthofer, Lauterbach GmbH

Choosing tools for functional safety projects can be challenging. In this presentation we are going to demonstrate various ways on how a TRACE32 debugger can contribute in the certification process. Beside debugging tasks and performance analysis, our debugger can be integrated into the testing process without occupying additional on-chip resources.

Furthermore, it can be used for minimal-overhead code coverage measurement. It also includes a qualified instruction set simulator for running tests without existing hardware. All these functions are covered by our Tool Qualification Support Kit which helps you qualifying our tools for your use case according to the applying safety standard.


  • Overhead-free code coverage using SoC
  • Qualified instruction set
  • Tool Qualification Support Kit (TQSK) – what’s inside?

TRACE32 in the context of 3rd party testing tools

Daniel Orthofer is a senior embedded software engineer at Lauterbach and is a specialist in the area of code coverage analysis and measurement solutions for MC/DC and Decision Coverage.

Daniel has a Master of Science degree in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology from the Technical University of Munich and his colleagues often rely upon his expertise in Clang-based code analysis. As part of the core development team, he is also responsible for developing advanced debug and trace solutions for DSP architectures.

“Static Analysis for Safety Critical Software development”     

Joakim Nilsson, Business Area Manager Products and Tools & Deputy CEO at Nohau Solutions

Static analysis is an important technology for developing software that needs to achieve high levels of functional safety.Standards are highly recommending the static analysis technology, which yield significant benefits to development, QA, and audit teams by:

· Enhancement of system expertise.

· Analyzing highly complex scenarios.

· Improved code quality and security metrics.

· Improved code compliance – coding standards, industry standards, and more

Joakim Nilsson has been working with requirement management and software development tools since mid 1990.

He has been working since 2004 at Nohau Solutions and holds the positions as Business Area Manager Products and Tools & Deputy CEO
