OSS.5 USA – the calendar event for...

…functional safety, operational safety, system safety, testing & validation experts and ADAS/ AD level 5 executives.

Our mission:

  • Explore how AI, ML & Level 5 automation will change system safety systems & technologies
  • Discuss and evaluate current standards & regulations such as PAS 21448, UL 4600, PAS 1881 & the most anticipiated 3rd ISO 26262 edition
  • Discuss which concepts, architectures, platforms and further technical requirements are needed to reach Level 4 & 5 operational safe systems
  • Evaluate pathways from operational fail safe to operational safe systems
  • Cover the full scope of operational safe systems in Level 4 & Level 5 from the market leaders and new market players
  • Safety mechanisms and redundancy in AI driven systems – Approach new technical challenges and safety technologies which will lead to cognitive vehicles and Level 5 automated cars
  • Be an active part of the full automation and self-driving cars reality and make Level 5 happen – with operational safe systems!

Where else can you find so many projects, vehicle automation budgets and automotive safety leads under the same roof?

Get involved as a business partner as our events are a one-stop-shop opportunity to promote thought-leadership and get face-to-face with over 150 key prospects.

OSS.5 USA offers the best in class opportunity to introduce yourself as a thought leader to functional safety, system safety & autonomous driving executives in the automotive industry.
