How Siemens helps manage V&V strategies for highly advanced driving systems

V&V Critical scenarios for SAE levels 4 and 5

Many monumental challenges remain with autonomous vehicle development before autonomous vehicles become a new normal. The first challenge is the complexity and size required with verification to release highly automated driving (HAD) systems to the large public, which most automotive players have yet to overcome. While it’s now apparent simulation will soon become the predominant source of HAD verification, some questions still need answering:

  • Which scenarios should be used for simulation?
  • How to produce them in large numbers and high diversity?
  • How to capture enough tricky adverse situations?
  • When is the system good enough?
  • When am I done testing?
  • When is it considered complete?

...in addition to other surprisingly philosophical questions.

The second challenge concerns data management and the need for extensive integration of application lifecycle management (ALM), product lifecycle management (PLM), and simulation tools. These tools can help keep track of ever-increasing complexity systems and conduct design, integration, and verification activities in harmonious collaboration between numerous departments.

Managing complexity of highly advanced driving systems

Collaboration among an increasing number of contributors is necessary to advanced driving functions development. However, this increases the risk of information not being shared, synchronized, or traced across departments. Better coverage and increased verification confidence come with more simulation test cases, but it also means higher costs in computing infrastructure and workforce. Potentially more development insight comes with a more extensive result database, but it also adds more time to analyze the data without missing critical failure patterns.

Watch this webinar to learn how Simcenter Prescan360 can organically become part of autonomous vehicle development, providing the required verification by adequately combining:

  • Extensive critical scenario generation according to SOTIF
  • High fidelity sensor and environment simulation
  • Large scale simulation on cloud and on-premises cluster
  • Directed test case sampling using machine learning
  • Meaningful representation of large results sets, not to miss significant failures
