Accelerating Autonomous Driving Development through Simulation-based Validation and Verification

The presentation will focus on simulation-based validation for autonomous driving, which has emerged as an effective tool to complement physical testing and accelerate the development process. We will discuss the benefits and challenges of simulation-based validation for autonomous driving, including the use of advanced sensor models, scenario generation tools, and real-time simulation platforms. Additionally, we will present the latest trends and innovations in the autonomous driving simulation and validation field, along with case studies and examples of successful simulation-based validation projects. Attendees will learn how to leverage simulation-based validation to ensure the safety and reliability of autonomous driving systems.
