OEMs and Tier 1s each have autonomous vehicle development programs requiring massive investment. These companies end up duplicating foundational work, even though that is not their key value add. This step-by-step approach solves many problems but leads to fragmentation for those interested in a top down approach. Creating a platform is required to properly address this challenge -- leveraging a core team of technology partners to provide a full hardware and software foundation with a scalable roadmap of processors, system software, middleware, APIs and tools. This approach best enables innovation at the application and functionality level without reinventing the base platform.

In any active safety system, it is desired to measure the “performance”. For the estimation case, generally a cost function like Mean-Square Error is used. For detection cases, the combination of Probability of Detection and Probability of False Alarm is used. Scenarios that would really expose performance measurement involve complex, dangerous and costly driving situations and are hard to recreate or even obtain. Using a virtual tool, we can produce the trials necessary to adequately determine the performance of active safety algorithms and systems. In this paper, we will outline the problem of measuring the performance of active safety algorithms or systems. We will then discuss the approach of using complex scenario design and Monte Carlo techniques to determine performance. We then follow with a brief discussion of Prescan and how it can help in this endeavor. Finally, two Monte Carlo type examples for particular active safety algorithms (LDW and AEB) will be presented.

The automotive industry is undergoing unprecedented change in the area of active safety and autonomous driving technology. The wide-scale development and implementation of advanced active safety technologies up to and including self-driving cars also raise many questions and bring new regulatory and product liability challenges to product designers and manufacturers. Examples of these questions include the follow: What is the state of regulation today applicable to this rapidly developing technology? What are the general views of the regulators about self driving cars? What is the consumer expectation? What happens when the system fails and reasonable actions by the driver/occupant could have prevented an accident? Who will consumers blame when accidents occur? Who will Courts hold liable when consumers file suit? How will this technology change current law applicable to automotive product liability? What challenges lie ahead for manufacturers that must defend their design decisions to juries by use of source code and other complex data?

Increasingly tough safety requirements are enormous challenges for the automotive industry. One way in which automobile manufacturers (OEMs) are responding is by implementing a growing number of advanced driver assistance systems. These help boost road safety and make motorists’ routine tasks easier. In the future, OEMs will increasingly introduce active safety functions in the different vehicles classes due to mandatory regulations at European level and stricter Euro NCAP criteria. From 2014 onwards, Euro NCAP ratings will include an assessment of lane support and autonomous emergency brake (AEB) systems for city (AEB City) and inter-urban (AEB Inter-Urban) use cases. Autonomous emergency braking with pedestrian and vulnerable road user detection (AEB Pedestrian, AEB VRU) will follow in 2016. For these active safety systems, Euro NCAP has defined or is defining distinct methods for real-world vehicle tests. This presentation introduces new technologies and tools for the verification of active safety and advanced driver assistance systems by means of model-in-the-loop (MIL), software-in-the-loop (SIL) and hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulation.

This presentation describes the development of test conditions and related equipment including an adult and child surrogate pedestrian target for test track evaluation of pedestrian Pre-Collision Systems (PCS). The test scenarios were developed using pedestrian crash data from NHTSA’s General Estimate System (GES), Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS), state data (Michigan) and analysis of 110-Car naturalistic driving data collected using video data recorders as part of this project. The 77GHz radar reflection characteristics of the pedestrian test targets were determined using radar scanning of 10 real people of different shapes and sizes including male, female and children. The shape and articulated motion of the surrogate pedestrian targets were determined from analysis of gait, knee angle and related measurements of real people. Finally the performance of two different Pedestrian PCS equipped vehicles were evaluated using the two surrogate pedestrian targets at test track testing.

Technology is advancing, connection mechanisms are growing, and consumers and hackers are becoming more sophisticated. With increasing networking between modules and access points into the vehicle, the attack surface has increased thereby opening up new potential vulnerabilities. Automobiles are no longer mere mechanical devices but are controlled by dozens of digital computers coordinated by internal networks. While all this technology has allowed for better personalized experiences, seamless integration into a person’s lifestyle, differential services, predictive diagnostics and safer driving conditions, the increase in complexity drives the need for advanced security and data solutions.

The objective for the further progress of safety systems is the reduction of fatalities and injuries in real world traffic. Safety systems at Audi are always considered to be in the background, a safety net, fully supporting a holistic integrated safety systems approach, i.e. along the full accident chain of events. The systems include not only active safety systems, passive systems, post-crash systems each acting before, during, and after a collision respectively, but it also include intelligent connections between them. Examples are reversible belt pre-tensioners which use pre-collision information to influence the occupant movement by warning and positioning the occupant before and during the collision as well as brake systems which influence the vehicle behavior before during and after a collision through AEB and post collision braking. To accelerate the installation rate/penetration of active safety systems such systems are being incentivized by other stakeholders. Examples are insurance premium discounts for fitment on AEB systems in UK and Germany.
