The safetronic® is the industry's premier conference for the holistic safety of road vehicles. In November 2022, experts from the automotive industry met again to discuss challenges, solutions and trends. Although the safety of automated vehicles and, in particular, the associated safety assurance of AI are currently in the public spotlight, the experts at the conference had a different perspective. For them, a well-known topic is experiencing a revival and is emerging as a new trend topic: model-based system safety engineering (MBSE). Having worked on model-based safety engineering for well over a decade now, I'm personally as intrigued by this trend as I am skeptical about whether it's going to take off this time. That's reason enough for me to take a closer look at this potential trend from my individual perspective in this article.
