Critical Scenario Creation Methodology for Safety Assessment

The design of infrastructure can have an impact on overall safety and in most accident cases, is also attributed to the driver. The introduction of the SOTIF standard has brought along a fundamental shift in the safety case for autonomous vehicles resulting in the vehicle manufacturer carrying an increased burden of responsibility and liability. Critical Scenario Creation (CSC) is a proprietary methodology to systematically and automatically generate unsafe-unknown scenarios. By adopting the CSC process, cities and traffic planners can identify problem areas and evaluate infrastructure changes that support safer operations, thus increasing safety in the urban environment.
