Dr. Christian Schyr (AVL): "VIRTUAL TESTING IN THE DEVELOPMENT PROCESS OF HIGHLY AUTOMATED MOBILITY SYSTEMS"
The development and approval of automated vehicles especially in urban areas places new demands on the development methods and tools used. Within the scope of a safety analysis, it must be proven with common methods of ISO26262 (functional safety) such as FMEA, FEA and SOTIF as well as new methods like STPA, that the developed ADAS/AD functions do not cause any unreasonable risk in real driving conditions.
In this context, all relevant degradations or faults must be reliably diagnosed and the appropriate responses automatically initiated by the vehicle. However, for highly automated vehicles especially in urban, rural or highway transport, new requirements arise for the safety verification taken in the development process.
The lecture presents a novel approach for development, integatration and certification of automated mobility systems using scenario-based simulation applied consistently in different X-in-the-Loop test environments.
