A Quality of Exposure Metric for SOTIF Validation
The question of how many miles is enough to determine readiness for driverless deployment has been a popular topic in the automated vehicle industry for some time. This presentation aims to explore the various aspects that should be considered in the decision-making process to establish driverless readiness. While a specific mileage accumulation target is perhaps the easiest to establish as a concrete goal, the oversimplification of this approach and associated fallbacks are laid out here. As a result, a comprehensive approach is required to establish such a target. One new concept Motional is using is the Quality of Exposure metric.
