This symposium will bring together the world’s leading engineers in the field of autonomous vehicle research, testing, validation and development. The conference will be held in Stuttgart alongside Automotive Testing Expo 2017, the world’s largest exhibition dedicated to new vehicle development and testing.
Dr. Houssem Abdellatif, Global Head Autonomous Driving & ADAS
Time: 10:00 am
Topic: Approaches for testing and type approval of automatic driving vehicles
Abstract: Further road safety improvement is achievable through advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and automated driving (AD), which will result in autonomous driving in the future. However, common type approval procedures and testing approaches must be defined. The testing procedures based on physical testing seem to be insufficient to cover all the possible cases and thus to evaluate their efficiency and safety. Simulation methods seem to be the only feasible way to cover the huge number of possible scenarios. Physical tests will still be needed for verification and validation of these simulation models and setups.
The following topics will be discussed at the conference:
Public road testing
Traffic scenario testing
Embedded software testing
Reliability testing of software and hardware systems
