Autonomous Driving Validation Library - A New Way to Test and Validate Autonomous Vehicles

article imageAs the world moves towards a future of autonomous vehicles (AVs), it becomes increasingly important to ensure that these vehicles are safe and efficient. To achieve this, commercial companies and researchers worldwide are developing new technologies and methods to test and validate AVs. One such solution is Cognata s Autonomous Driving Validation Library (ADVL), a combination of a scenario-based simulation engine and a comprehensive library of scenarios aimed at testing and validating AVs through standard packages of different driving scenarios.

SwRI tests Automated Vehicles in virtual off-road Environments

article imageSouthwest Research Institute (SwRI) has created a 3D simulation tool to test automated vehicles in virtual off-road environments modeled after real-world conditions. The research expands SwRI's investment into software-in-the-loop solutions to test connected and automated vehicles (CAVs) in scenarios ranging from congested roadways to off-road terrain. A simulated environment, or a 3D "software loop", supports evaluations of an infinite number of scenarios that would be cost-prohibitive to test in the real world.

Mobility: Supercomputers will control future Cars

article imageFuture highly automated and networked vehicles will require powerful computer systems to execute complex computations and process huge data volumes. Within the framework of the CeCaS project, 30 partners from industry and research are now developing suitable processors, interfaces, and system architectures for this purpose. Two institutes of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) are involved in this project that is coordinated by Infineon. CeCaS is funded by the Federal Research Ministry within the MANNHEIM Initiative.
