First meeting of intacs working group „ASPICE und IT-Security“ hosted by F+S

IntacsOn Monday, 07/05/2018, the first meeting of the newly established intacs working group “ASPICE and IT Security” will be held at F+S. The working group includes cyber security experts from OEMs, suppliers and consulting companies of the automotive industry.

The subject of Security is one of the biggest new challenges for automotive manufacturers and suppliers. Advancements in “autonomous driving” also involve the development of technical interfaces between vehicles and the infrastructure, which will open up entirely new attack scenarios. FunctionalSafety will be possible in the future only by taking into account cyber security and will require a good understanding of secure architectures and potential attack scenarios.

For nearly 20 years F+S GmbH has been developing software for the automotive sector on the basis of disciplined process-compliant methods. We understand the requirements of security – both with respect to the process technology and implementation. We will contribute our experience and knowledge to the working group “ASPICE and IT Security” and look forward to an active exchange of experiences and ideas during the group’s first meeting.

Embedded World 2018

As always, F+S GmbH was present again with an exhibit at the embedded world exhibition and conference in Nuremberg. With more than 1,000 exhibitors, embedded world is the leading forum for the international embedded community.

F+S CubeThis year F+S once again had a special eye-catcher: a free-floating cube with our company portfolio over the F+S booth. The cube drew a great deal of attention and resulted in interesting discussions with the visitors.

Of course, we met many of our customers as well as numerous new potential customers and discussed current trends about software development in the automotive sector. Interest in Cyber Security continues to grow, and our expertise is in demand. But our products and services with respect to Functional Safety in accordance with ISO 26262, SPICE 3.1 and embedded software development also attracted much interest.

Autonomous driving is on everyone's lips – why not fly autonomously?

Jugend forschtJugend forscht is Germany's best-known youth competition and offers students an ideal framework for developing their skills and interests in the natural and technical sciences on an individual basis and at a high level.

We are pleased to be able to support a team of young researchers in their projects to develop an autonomously flying aircraft with our know-how and also with financial resources.

The "Marienschüler" talk here about their project. Also the "Domstadt - Heimat- und Bürgerzeitung für die Stadt Limburg" reported in detail about the project.

F+S participates in developing SPICE for Mechanical Engineering

IntacsFor more than four years F+S GmbH has been actively involved in the development of the "SPICE for Mechanical Engineering" standard.
As early as 2015, André Zeh, managing director of F+S, gave a talk on this topic at the VDA Automotive SYS, which triggered new discussions and impulses.
The "SPICE for Mechanical Engineering" standard was published in 2017.
F+S continues to be actively involved in the intacs "Mechanical SPICE" working group, which is now committed to the development of training documents in addition to the maintenance of the model.
