❱ ❱ The new VRES vehicle resilience testing facility at HORIBA MIRA takes a holistic approach to vehicle electronics testing incorporating both EMC as well as cyber-security

❱ ❱ The 5StarS project takes vehicle resilience to the consumer with a rating scheme designed to provide levels of security assurance

❱ ❱ EMI, Cybersecurity and functional safety all have a direct impact on safety, reinforcing the need to consider these attributes together throughout the design, development and life of the vehicle

for Automotive Cybersecurity, Electromagnetic Resilience and Functional Safety are very similar and the organisation is developing a risk based strategy for Electromagnetic Resilience similar to those used in Automotive Cybersecurity and Functional Safety. “The cross-overs between these aspects are so big that we

have mixed domain engineers and specialists across these areas,” says Martin.

MODELLING AND SIMULATION The VRES Technology Centre also includes modelling and simulation capabilities and is supported by more than 14 test facilities for physical testing. This provides a unique set of capabilities that is already delivering globally significant R&D and commercial programmes for worldwide clients. Ranging from workshops and screened laboratories for

static and dynamic vehicle testing, and newly developed system analysis and attack laboratories, through to HORIBA MIRA’s City Circuit, these facilities allow the safe assessment of resilience for vehicle electronic systems. I asked Paul Wooderson about any possible links that may

exist between the ability to model and simulate systems and the use of such facilities by automotive manufacturers to assure their product. “Although there’s currently no direct link between

simulation/modelling and the 5StarS project, there is nonetheless ongoing research into simulation and modelling

of cybersecurity properties, attacks and the like, which may in the future allow more assurance to be gained earlier during the engineering process,” he says. If a meaningful and cost effective way is found to do this

in practice, then it could be something that is assessed in a future 5StarS assessment. Similar to the NCAP crashworthiness assessments, the 5StarS cybersecurity framework is designed to be adaptable over time, both to incorporate newly emerging threats and vulnerabilities and also to add new assurance requirements to the assessment. “This means that as the state-of-the art in cybersecurity engineering and assurance develops and the industry maturity increases, this can be reflected and rewarded through the 5StarS assessments,” concludes Wooderson.

A FACILITY IN DEVELOPMENT The development of VRES will continue to expand through 2019 and on into 2020, according to HORIBA MIRA’s Chief Technical Officer, Graeme Stewart. According to Stewart, by combining automotive cybersecurity,

electromagnetic resilience and functional safety for the first time, HORIBA MIRA will deliver advanced engineering systems in line with the increasing complexity of electrified, connected and automated vehicles, to address the growing and evolving risks to vehicle safety, security and functionality. “Our customers can now benefit from a creative and talented team of over 85 engineers, analysts and specialists, combined with state-of-the-art equipment and a cutting-edge cluster of facilities to deliver world-class automotive services and solutions,” Stewart concludes.
