  • An industry viewpoint of conformity assessment with reference to CASS. (Conformity Assessment of Safety Systems)

    The development of the CASS scheme arose from a series of programmes supported by both the Department of Trade & Industry (DTI) and the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) over the last twenty years. Since the mid 1980s industry has placed increasing reliance on programmable safety-related systems, but at the same time concerns have been expressed about the risks arising from the increasing use of such programmable systems. An all-sector working party (associated with a DTI sponsored IEE-BCS study) recommended deferring certification pending more research. It also recommended support for the development of IEC61508, Functional Safety: Safety Related Systems, in order to establish and harmonize best practice across sectors. The CASS project, which commenced in 1998, was supported by the DTI under its Sector Challenge Programme. The project secured strong support from industry, including all the major UK trade associations, professional institutions, and the HSE. This project delivered the CASS conformity assessment scheme for safety-related systems based on the international standard IEC 61508. Its aims are to facilitate the opening of markets, to improve UK competitiveness, to reduce the cost of compliance, and to improve safety and professional and public confidence in safety. The presentation charts some of the history of the CASS scheme, and outlines the principles which underpin the structure of the conformance assessment offered under the scheme. Against that background, the author traces the history of his company's involvement with CASS and the related activities, and explores the business driving factors which motivated that involvement-and that of the GAMBICA team working on CASS-in seeking to establish with others a conformance assessment scheme which aligned with their commercial priorities whilst still being applicable to other supply-chain models. The primary goals set at the beginning of the CASS project have either all been realised, or the route to achieving them has been firmly established, and the long-term view is that the involvement with the evolution of CASS will prove to be fully justified.

  • Vehicle operation safety monitoring using context based metrics: A case study

    This paper presents results of the deployment of vehicle safety systems developed by the Intelligent Vehicles and Safety Systems Group at the Australian Centre for Field Robotics. The technology was deployed within an active mine site in Australia undergoing standard open-cut mining operations. Data were collected from the vehicles and analysed in order to assess the overall safety and performance of the vehicle operations within the mine. Metrics calculated include distributions of vehicle paths along stretches of road for driving line analysis, and statistics around vehicle events such as overspeed and proximity to other vehicles.

The intent is to promote safe practices for design and evaluation of safety system performance and reliability. Although the standard is limited to safety systems, many of the principles may have applicability to equipment provided for safe shutdown, post-accident monitoring display instrumentation, preventive interlock features, or any other systems, structures, or equipment related to safety.

  • A Novel Approach for the Test of Active Pedestrian Safety Systems

    Active pedestrian safety systems are based on a variety of sensor systems and detection algorithm approaches. The activation of, e.g., an emergency brake is a critical decision. Therefore, such applications must be tested very responsibly. This paper shows the characteristic features of pedestrians, presents current test methods, and introduces a novel test system approach and pedestrian dummy, which enables the test of advanced pedestrian detection systems. This includes also detection algorithm approaches including pre- indicators and path prediction for a complex motion pattern. The complex motion pattern can be a walking or a running pedestrian, including velocity and direction changes.
