Automotive Use Case: Scenario-based Testing
Testing Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) is challenging, as the environmental conditions that appear in reality are manifold and complex. Testing on the road only is not feasible since it is expensive and difficult to reproduce results – additionally virtual tests based on environment simulations are therefore required. These simulations are based on scenarios representing real world situations that provide ground truth data to sensors or sensor models for the environmental perception. To integrate environment simulations with function simulations, lists of objects (i.e. sensed and abstracted traffic participants) and sensor raw data need to be exchanged and have to be processed by the ADAS function under test. Various simulators for automated driving exist that provide different, not uniquely defined interfaces. The challenge lies in the proper integration and configuration of complex tool-chains for scenario-based testing of (partly) automated vehicles.
