Efficient validation of ADAS/AD systems with vehicle-level in-lab testing

While modern ADAS/AD systems are improving safety and gaining popularity, their validation can be a long, expensive process. AVL has developed methods and toolchains to efficiently test and validate ADAS systems on-vehicle in a lab environment (vehicle-in-the-loop). This presentation will discuss the requirements and challenges in the validation of ADAS/AD systems; the use of virtual testing methods for validation and homologation; initiatives, standards and legislation. It will also cover vehicle-in-the-loop testing using the example of the AVL DRIVINGCUBE solution, including an introduction to DRIVINGCUBE, components and solutions, and application examples.
