From its early beginnings, the automotive industry has always been known for creating fascinating, innovative new solutions and concepts. Today’s vehicles are evolving from computers-on-wheels towards the internet of everything and data-on-wheels. Automotive systems currently exhibit increased levels of automation as well as ever tighter integration with other vehicles, traffic infrastructure, and cloud services. As a result, a shift of the value creation in the automotive domain toward information and communications technology (ICT) domain can be observed over the years. This can be perceived as boon or bane - it greatly increases complexity and uncertainty, but at the same time opens up new opportunities for realizing innovative safety functions. Novel advanced driver assistance systems features or automated driving functions drive the need for advances and novel safety and security solutions, while highly relying on existing components developed in the traditional automotive development landscape. Novel constraints coming from highly automated and distributed driving functionalities which can not be supervised by drivers must therefore be considered as an integral part of the development of modern vehicles. But within these terms a lack of experience with development approaches for automated driving and safety engineering of such automated functionalities still exist. In the current phase, more and more highly automated driving functions become integrated in conventional vehicles relying on safety components developed for conventional passenger vehicle usage. This paper will concentrate on the constraints and additional points to be considered when developing or integrating existing safety-related components developed as SEooC in the context of highly automated vehicles.
