Challenges in Autonomous Vehicle Testing and Validation

Challenges in Autonomous Vehicle Testing and Validation Software testing is all too often simply a bug hunt rather than a wellconsidered exercise in ensuring quality. A more methodical approach than a simple cycle of system-level test-fail-patch-test will be required to deploy safe autonomous vehicles at scale. The ISO 26262 development V process sets up a framework that ties each type of testing to a corresponding design or requirement document, but presents challenges when adapted to deal with the sorts of novel testing problems...

Accident fatalities in a TESLA car might have been avoided by using software modules of NEXYAD: the time for monitoring has come

Accident fatalities in a TESLA car might have been avoided by using software modules of NEXYAD : the time for monitoring circuit has come. by NEXYAD Passions run around the issue of autonomous vehicles, or semi-autonomous. Recently with a TESLA car there has been a fatal accident while on autopilot mode. NEXYAD studied traffic safety for twenty years, and we give some elements of reflection on this type of accident.   Processing circuit, informing auti-pilot systems, control, etc ... from perception, data...

NEXYAD showed that risk of accident is not correlated to driving style

Although ntuition let people presume that risk of accident may be correlated to driving style, NEXYAD could demonstrate that this is wrong : There are quiet but dangerous drivers, and there are brutal but safe drivers. The module SafetyNex, developed by the company NEXYAD shows how it really works, and this module is the ultimate telematics solution (connected car) for onboard road safety estimation. Available on smartphones, second market electronic devices, and first market electronic devices. Examples of mappings Safety x... [Lire la suite]

Author : Gérard Yahiaoui, Nexyad Contributors : Gilles Schaefer, Car&D   The French R&D cluster Mov'eo (Imagine Mobility) has started for its SMEs (Small to Medium Enterprises) and MSC (Middle Sized Companies) "business" oriented clusters called “Groupements”. These groupements allow: hunting in packs: shortening the cycle "approach, qualified prospect, mail order" is the desired effect. building extended value chains to respond more comprehensively to customer building shared development strategies and placing...
