Controlling and Explosion: The Industry Is Working Hard on Autonomous Vehicle Development to Eliminate Driver Error – But How Is It Coping with the Greatly Increased Test Effort?

This article presents three components that differ in the testing and development of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) compared to fully autonomous vehicles: ADAS functions are designed for a limited set of scenarios; ADAS functions are self-contained and have no interaction with the environment, while fully automated vehicles must have vehicle to everything (V2X) capabilities; and ADAS functions always consider the driver the backup to take control of the vehicle, compared to no driver backup in the vehicle with fully automated driving. These three differences are discussed in relation to the testing and validation that must be undertaken by the automotive industry. The authors also describe how TASS International (Netherlands) is using a simulation environment called PreScan and coupled it with the German In-Depth Accident Study (GIDAS) data.
