VR Digitalisation & Innovation of Medical Systems

Abstract: Medical devices became complex IT systems, integrating new technologies, and connecting systems. This talk is about VR Digitalisation & Innovation of Medical Systems and how innovative IT solutions and medical systems can be successfully integrated.

CV: Prim. Univ.Prof. Dr Herbert Reitsamer has cross disciplinary skills of an engineer in communication technology (German: Nachrichtentechnik) and professor for neurology and psychology (German: Neuro- und Sinnespsychologie), and professor for ophthalmology (German: Augenheilkunde). The idea is to consider cross disciplinary innovative medical systems combining medical science and technology, and best practices in design for safety and security of such networked solutions.

ASA Automotive Skills Alliance Updates - Integrating European Blueprint Projects into a European Alliance

Abstract: The ASA (Automotive Skills Alliance DRIVES)  has been formed by end of 2021 inegrating different automotive associations and members of blueprint projects for automtive to build an upskilling strategy and platform for the automotive sector.

A EuroSPI & Valeo (represented in EG-SPICE) working group for IT and software in automotive has been formed and an EuroSPI chair for ASA has been appointed. The working group is now active and participation is possible.

DRIVES as a European Blueprint project developed a Learn-Compass platform for the Automotive and will establish in 2021 a DRIVES Framework Platform. In 2021 an ASA (Automotive Skills Alliance) has been founded.  ALBATTS as a European BLUEPRINT project develops a skills agenda for E-Mobility and electrification in Europe, and they also joined the ASA.

Both projects are under the guidance of the ACEA, the European Automobile Manufacturers Association and the ASA (Automotive Skills Alliance) provides a strategic service platform for Automotive in Europe.

Agility & ASPICE - Focusing future challenges

Abstract: The launch of new technologies and future legal requirements enhances the complexity of ECUs and functions related to vehicles. Especially the increasing amount of software drives the complexity to a new level. The product development process had to change from a hardware focused to a software oriented approach with shorter iteration cycles to manage those new requirements. But to change the development process is another new challenge. Automotive SPICE defines what has be done to manage a project in good manner based on a capability model but it does not describes how this can be achieved. An agile approach, which defines a flow how to work together can be a strong combination with ASPICE and therefore a good point to start and to focus future challenges.

CV: Dominik Feurer has studied Computer Engineering (B. Sc.), Computing (B. Sc. HONS) and Business Engineering (M. Eng.) with specialisation in software project management. Since 2020 he is an ASPICE Competent Assessor at Porsche AG, who plans and performs assessments of the ECU development processes at suppliers. In the past he worked as a project manager in the area of vehicle diagnostic systems and defined strategies for the diagnostics of the future. He identified his passion for the agile approach when he worked as a product owner and scrum master in a smart mobility project. Currently he is also part of the team who develop the Agile SPICE standard and accompanies suppliers during the development of a product.

Large Websites for Organizations have to become more interactive

Abstract: It is strange to note that Social Networks, e-Learning Modules and Computer games on the net offer all kinds of interactivity between contents, users and even administrators, but large Websites of companies developed for customers very often do not offer any such kind of facility. Typically, if one studies a large Website and finds an issue interesting, yet one needs more information than is available, one is usually stuck. Ways to send a message or a question beyond examining FAQ lists are rarely offered. If one is lucky, one does find a phone-number. Dialing, one usually ends in a long waiting line, supposedly made more pleasant by a bit of music. If finally a person does answer, the person is no specialist and cannot really help except possibly by redirecting the call (to another waiting line). It would be technically easy to offer on any page of the Website a ”Feedback” button, that allows to send messages or queries. Yet companies hate this idea, simply because of the avalanche of messages ending up on someone’s desk, who is also not an expert in most areas. The obvious solution is to define for every Webpage or set of Webpages one or more experts, so nobody is getting an avalanche and questions end up with someone who can provide good answers. In this presentation we show examples of this approach, but also indicate that one should go much further: If someone has a question, probably there are other users who have the same question. So it makes sense to make questions and answers publicly visible, and even allow communication between users with similar problems. The speaker has implemented with his group a fairly sophisticated system going much beyond what just has been explained. Features of this system will be shown, including the provision of group rights, of high resolution pictures, of sophisticated search not restricted to text, notes including links or media object attached not just to text, but also to parts of pictures, and more. The system is available for first tries for a token sum, but can (and has been) also used for major applications.
