Current test and validation procedures for automated and connected driving functions use field tests on public roads primarily to identify unknown critical scenarios. These scenarios are then validated or varied within simulations or on closed proving grounds. In order to validate complex urban driving scenarios, this approach may need to be supplemented by the method of scenario-based field tests in real traffic environments. Scenario-based tests constitutes the methodical basis for an efficient and purposive test of automated and connected driving functions in public testbeds.

This paper focuses on concepts for the design, planning and implementation of scenario-based tests of automated and connected driving functions under real traffic conditions. The developed toolbox will be explained using the example of the “Digital Testbed Dresden / Saxony” as part of the initiative “Synchrone Mobilität 2023”.
