In the automotive world, new technologies are emerging and gradually leading us on the path to automated driving. In order to maintain safety and security, automotive standards are constantly being updated. Manufacturers are obliged to meet every current requirements so that vehicles can be certified and approved. In this context, the certified specialists in functional safety, automotive safety and intelligent systems at ROSAS ensure a high quality service through their extensive knowledge of the field and their expertise in current standards and simulation-based testing methods.



Functional safety

With regard to functional safety, ROSAS engineers support companies throughout their analyses according to ISO 26262 and ISO 21448 (SOTIF) standards. In addition, ROSAS offers solutions for the validation and verification of a vehicle on hardware and software levels. Here are services that ROSAS provides :

  • Interim Safety Managers
  • Safety analysis such as HARA, FME(D)A, FTA, etc.
  • Safety mechanism designs
  • Support to generate safety cases and work products
  • Verification by simulation

ROSAS also includes a team trained as Intacs Provisional Assessors for ASPICE implementation and assessment.


ROSAS Security Engineers are certified and trained to the cybersecurity standard ISO 21434 and provide support throughout the compliance process by:

  • Establishing processes and models,
  • Preparing to demonstrate CSMS compliance (UNECE WP.29/R155)
    • CSMS development
    • CSMS review
    • CSMS certification
  • Preparing to integrate OEMs for type approvals
  • Developing work products
  • Reviewing work products


ROSAS has developed the first remotely operated vehicle in Switzerland, still at the Proof-of-Concept stage, in partnership with the country's largest transport companies (SBB, PostAuto, Ruag, TPF, etc.). This solution can now be implemented on vehicles and robots.

ROSAS can also set up teleoperation centers adapted to specific needs. To achieve this, an A to Z service is offered, in which we provide consultancy on for instance the business applicability of teleoperation, its social acceptability, the number of teleoperators needed for a fleet of vehicles depending on the ODD, the training of teleoperators, the ergonomics of the remote operation center, the infrastructure and software required, and many others.

Autonomous vehicles and infrastructures

In the area of autonomous vehicles, ROSAS supports companies in various fields such as object perception, localization and path planning with innovative and powerful algorithms. In addition, the ROSAS laboratory can simulate and test Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) communications. The team proposes the following means and services:

  • Digital Twin: IPG CarMaker and rFpro simulation software to simulate a given environment ("Operational Design Domain - ODD") and critical scenarios.
  • Tools: Road Side Unit and On-Board Unit to study and simulate V2I communication.
  • Teleoperation: remotely-controlled system that interacts with vehicles using infrastructure and software
  • System modeling: requirements verification, simulation of scenarios and prediction of physical behaviors (Cameo System Modeler, MATLAB Simulink)
  • Simulation and verification: performing physical verification by simulation (MIL), accelerating the development of new systems (SIL and automatic generation of source codes), verification and optimization (PIL, HIL via the use of SpeedGoat)
  • PerceptIn vehicle: autonomous test vehicle on which teleoperation is deployed
  • PixLoop vehicle: development of an autonomous goods delivery vehicle, on which the "Development from Scratch" algorithms are deployed.

Simulation of autonomous vehicles

Teleoperation and automated vehicles must be safe and secure, and should consider all requirements and complexities that come with it. One of the most effective approaches is to simulate the systems. This is why ROSAS engineers carry out different activities in this area, including :

  • The simulation of scenarios through a database containing all accidents in Switzerland since 1992. This database demonstrates the safety advantages of vehicles with Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS).
  • The simulation of the different ADAS sensors (HiL - Hardware in the loop) and of the algorithms developed for autonomous vehicles (SiL - Software in the loop).
  • Our expertise in Model Based Engineering allows us to carry out a Top-Down simulation of the vehicle and its interactions with the infrastructure.
