Performance textiles and fabrics are rapidly bringing apparel and footwear products into the 21st century. Manufacturers today are innovating at breakneck speed and bringing to the market synthetic textiles and fabrics with enhanced performance characteristics, or that feature embedded fibers or topical applications. This has led to the widespread introduction of advanced performance apparel and footwear that offer you new levels of comfort and safety. At the same time, sorting through claims regarding the performance characteristics of these advanced textiles and fabrics can present real challenges for manufacturers, retailers and you. At a minimum, the myriad of vague, conflicting or unsubstantiated marketing claims and characterizations used to promote these materials often result in frustration and disappointment. And fraudulent representations can unnecessarily expose apparel manufacturers and retail buyers to potentially hazardous chemicals and other risks.

Developing an optimal arc flash protection strategy for a given facility can be difficult due to the number of solutions and system variables involved. Effective arc flash hazard reduction is best achieved by establishing an overall system protection strategy that accounts for safety and operational requirements as well as system reliability and availability. An overview of available solution categories and application guidance based on experience in a wide variety of facility types is presented in order to assist engineers trying to implement “safety by design” principles to help deal with arc flash hazards. The approach provided addresses the complexities of the trade-offs between competing priorities and provides tools that help users develop effective protection strategies for the unique circumstances in a given facility.

There are many challenging tasks when developing autonomous driving features to cope with the various changes to the environment. Often lane markings are faded or are covered with snow or dirt and can be difficult for a camera-based detection system. In this report, VSI addresses the application of HD map assets to improve the safety and performance of automated vehicle features within the context of lane keeping and trajectories. VSI has been examining applications of HD maps in our test vehicle. In a previous report, we discussed map-based Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) using the advised speed attributes from HERE’s HD map data. In this report, we apply HERE’s HD map data to a lane keeping application and examine performance of lane keeping with a map-based approach compared to a camera and computer vision-based approach.

Vehicles aren’t making full use of map data – yet, these maps can help keep cars safe in a number of ways – even as they fulfill their primary role of efficiently getting vehicles from A to B. VSI Labs recently performed a series of real-world tests to integrate HERE HD Live Map into a variety of ADAS applications. The objective was to increase the safety of ADAS by improving the functional performance of the vehicle. In this whitepaper, discover how HERE HD Live Map: • Enabled map-enhanced adaptive cruise control (ACC), which had an advantage over regular ACC systems in areas like highway exits and school zones • Enabled map-based lane keeping that operated properly in many complicated situations where computer vision-only systems constantly failed • Enabled successful map-based lane changing in cases like lane merging, faded markings and inclement weather, where a computer vision-based system had difficulties detecting lanes • Helped to increased driver comfort during a 2,000+ mile

The new generation of mobile devices, applications, and cloud services significantly improve agency efficiencies. Tasks that were once relegated to timeconsuming deskwork, are now performed in the field, and with improved accuracy. Because of this, more and more public safety agencies are adopting these new technologies. One purpose of the FBI’s CJIS Security Policy is to enable agencies to fully leverage mobile devices, but without sacrificing security. Mobile devices introduce a variety of new threat vectors and risks. Careful consideration of these risks is important to maintaining information security. Threats to mobile devices stem mainly from their size, portability, and available wireless interfaces. Examples of mobile device threats include: • Loss or theft of device • Unauthorized access to device • Mobile operating system vulnerabilities • Communication over untrusted networks • Malware or malicious Apps • Jailbreak or rooting activity • Data loss through user behaviors

The prevalent use of paints and coatings across many industries and organizations presents a variety of workplace hazards. In many cases, selection and use of appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) is necessary to help control exposures. Respiratory and skin contact hazards are common across most applications. Depending on the type of paint or coating and the specific use conditions, other hazards may be present. These can include fire and explosion hazards, electric shock, fall hazards, excessive noise and other. Prior to selecting PPE for any painting operation, a hazard assessment completed by a qualified health and safety professional is necessary to evaluate exposure risks potentially present.

New digital technology now makes it feasible to integrate process control and SIF within a common automation infrastructure. While this can provide productivity and asset management benefits, if not done correctly, it can also compromise the safety and security of an industrial operation. Cybersecurity and sabotage vulnerability further accentuate the need for securing the safety instrumented system (SIS). Certainly, a common platform approach using similar hardware and software dedicated for control and safety functions, respectively, can provide the potential for cost savings. However, it is widely acknowledged that utilizing separate, independent, and diverse hardware/software for safety and control is the optimal way to protect against potentially catastrophic common cause and systematic design and application errors. Different vendors offer varied degrees of integration and solutions. The question is: how to provide an integrated control and safety solution with advanced functionality and productivity without compromising safety and security? And, where do users draw the line? A third-party (e.g., TÜV) certification of the hardware/software systems to IEC 61508 specifications carries significant advantages, but should this be the only criterion? How does a third-party certificate extend to the plant’s overall assignment of risk reduction credits for all independent protection layers (IPL)? Control system embedded safety logic solvers may actually increase the SIL requirements of the SIF if no credit is allowed for the distributed control system (DCS) as an IPL.
