Testing tomorrow's self-driving cars today

Man’s obsession with the machine doesn’t end at ADAS and semi automated Level 3 and 4 vehicles, but rather the promise of a fully self-driving car controlled and taught by artificial intelligence.
The immediate problem with this is that, being an immature technology, engineers, legislators and the public at large need assurance as to how safe this new tech is; and the only way to do this is through testing… extensive testing!

Safety Expectations for Automated and Autonomous Vehicles - Liability arising from basic technology vs. future technology

Dr. Ekkehard Helmig, Attorney-at-law, reviews in his 17-page report the liability concerns of autonomous drive, and impact of rising new technologies. Download the report for an in-depth insight into the legal aspects of autonomous drive.

Safety-critical testing of human controlled software-based systems

Active safety systems need to perform their role in a user-friendly manner and continue to function smoothly despite a panicking driver‘s instinctive reactions to unfolding events during an emergency maneuver. And because traffic safety has been a primary component of the promotion of automated driving, the unpredictable human intervention in an autonomous system could seriously compromise this objective.

Testing connected autonomous cars' communication skills

The testing of connected autonomous cars' communication skills results in massive projects around the world, such as China's goal of intelligent transportation for Shanghai residents and the fully functioning virtual city in Michigan for autonomous cars.

This report gives detailed insight into several testing facilities and projects currently running, as well as considerations regarding cyber security vulnerabilities and how the white hat hackers should lead the way in securing automotive software for autonomous vehicles.

Report on How Much Testing Will Prove Automated Cars Are Safe

Every January, carmakers testing self-driving cars in California have to detail how many times their vehicles malfunctioned during the preceding year. These so-called disengagement reports detail every time a human safety driver had to take control of the car, either due to hardware or software failure or because the driver anticipated a problem.
