Challenges and Approaches for Testing of Highly Automated Vehicles

Part of the Lecture Notes in Mobility book series (LNMOB)

Abstract

Testing of highly automated vehicles has new challenges with respect to the questions to answer, the test cases, and the testing procedures. Main questions arise from the fact that highly automated vehicles are required to achieve high levels of availability and effectiveness of the vehicle functions; after all, their performance has to be compared to the performance of human drivers. Testing of such vehicles requires international consensus on the required level of safety and on the metrics to be applied. The main challenges for such testing are discussed and some new approaches are presented.
