ADAS and autonomous vehicle testing: what does the future hold?

ADAS and autonomous vehicle testing: what does the future hold? It has become an almost unavoidable cliché to say ADAS and autonomous vehicle development is evolving at an accelerated rate. Self-driving car trials are under way in many cities around the world as governments and the automotive industry itself strive to make roads safer. But as the automated systems and sensor arrays become more complex, so too have the methods required to develop, test and evaluate them. So what does the future hold for ADAS and autonomous vehicle... [Lire la suite]

Simulation based approach for testing and validation of autonomous vehicles

Simulation based approach for testing and validation of autonomous vehicles On the first glance, autonomous vehicles seem to be just a simple continuation of the development of assistance systems which help the driver keeping the lane, holding the distance to other vehicles and avoiding accidents, with the vision of avoiding 80% of all accidents, because they are mainly caused by human errors. However, there is huge challenge with respect to the requirements on system performance and reliability for this step. As Herrtwich mentioned... [Lire la suite]

HIGH LEVEL FUNCTIONAL SPECIFICATION OF A SELF-DRIVING VEHICLE (POINT TO POINT, ANY DESTINATION) : WHAT ABOUT DRIVING RISK ?

HIGH LEVEL FUNCTIONAL SPECIFICATION OF A SELF-DRIVING VEHICLE (POINT TO POINT, ANY DESTINATION) : WHAT ABOUT DRIVING RISK ? A general usage self-Driving vehicle is an object that picks you at a point A (that may be anywhere) and takes you to a point B (that may be any reachable point from A), as fast as possible, in comfort and safety.And that's it (main features).   Now let's see each feature : a . as far as possible : it is the actual efficiency of transportation, as mobility is a key element of Economy b . comfort : it...

Trends, innovations and challenges in the automotive industry with AVL

Trends, innovations and challenges in the automotive industry with AVL We recently caught up with AVL to discuss simulation trends, technology innovation and skills shortage in ADAS technologists. AVL will be on the exhibition floor at AutoSens in Brussels this September showcasing their organisation. They also shared with us what they are most looking forward to at AutoSens in 2018… Simulation is becoming more and more important in testing and validation of sensors and vehicle systems, what trends do you see in terms of...

Self-driving cars face type approval standards hurdle

Self-driving cars face type approval standards hurdle Audi's new A8 may be the only series production car capable of piloting itself along highways while the driver watches the on-board TV, but it may take until the end of the decade before countries can agree on how to validate and approve its Level 3 self-driving system. The German government was the first worldwide to broadly legalize self-driving cars with a new law that came into effect June 21 that allowed automated driving as long as a driver is behind...

Simulation-Driven Validation of Advanced Driving-Assistance Systems

Simulation-Driven Validation of Advanced Driving-Assistance Systems Advanced driving-assistance systems (ADAS) have recently received an increasing attention from the car industry. ADAS development represents a considerable effort to obtain efficient and reliable systems. Driving several million kilometers is necessary to validate a system. Thus, there are strong needs to ease the development and validation processes. In this context, computer simulation techniques are a candidate solution to this problem since running digital...

NEXYAD ADAS VALIDATION DATABASE

NEXYAD ADAS VALIDATION DATABASE     Free space ground reality (for RoadNex) and obstacles ground reality (for ObstaNex) NEXYAD has been developing a methodology called "AGENDA" (published in the 90's by Gerard YAHIAOUI in the field of machine learning and artificial neural networks applications). Here is an example of ground reality : ground reality is needed in order to automate performance / KPIs measurement when you modify the perception system.

Human factors

Human factors As more ADAS functions are added to vehicles, the need to test them grows, but much of this will be done in the virtual sphere using driver-in-the-loop simulations The increase in ADAS systems is puttingpressure on testing engineers to make sure that the technologies are robust. As in many areas of vehicle and technology development, physical testing is becoming more time-consuming, which is at odds with the need to reduce the length of programmes. That is why even ADAS systems are benefiting from the use of... [Lire la suite]

Test and Validation of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems Automated Search for Critical Scenarios

Test and Validation of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems Automated Search for Critical Scenarios The amount of software used to implement vehicle functions continuous to grow rapidly and will double once more within the next decade. Established test and validation processes can hardly keep pace with this growth rate. In this context, autonomous testing, a technique that evolved substantially in the recent years, gains importance as an enhancement to the traditional testing process. Testing on a real test drive or with handwritten... [Lire la suite]
