A Scenario-Based Approach for Verification, Validation and Homologation of Highly Automated Vehicles
Vivek Jaikamal Business Development Manager, AVL
There is common agreement that validation of SAE Level 4 and 5 (highly automated vehicles) systems based on miles driven is neither feasible nor economical. Moreover, testing on public roads has severe limitations and hazards. A comprehensive scenario-based verification and validation methodology is needed in order to ensure safety in the entire operational design domain. We will present a complete and systematic approach to generate operational scenarios, create the relevant test cases and execute testing and homologation of automated driving functions in combined virtual and real road environments.
