Recently, automation of driving has become a significant interest of both industry and academia. Researchers are investigating different facets of automated driving systems (ADS) to address legal, technical, and logistical problems, which will make ADS-equipped vehicles (AVs) a reliable option for daily transportation. One of the most significant challenges that must be addressed before the mass production of AVs is the verification and validation (V&V) of safety and performance. A comprehensive V&V methodology is required to achieve assurance that the AV operates safely even in an uncertain traffic environment. The V&V Task Force under the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) On-Road Automated Driving (ORAD) Committee intends to develop such a V&V testing methodology. The first step in this process is a literature review of various AV V&V efforts, which is the purpose of this document. Subsequently, the objective is to summarize this document and identify a collection of commonalities and best practices in an SAE ORAD Committee document, J3209—Literature Review of Entities Engaged in Verification and Validation Activities Related to Automated Driving Systems, Including Commonalities and Best Practices.
