Self-Driving Cars Test Traditional Procedures - Digital Engineering
This article by Beth Stackpole is a very good overview of the challenges of validating autonomous vehicle safety - and not just because we were interviewed for it and quoted in it. The article goes into the various challenges to autonomous vehicle testing and validation, something we've wrote about before.
One important addition that is outside of the scope of the article: it's not just a challenge for autonomous vehicles. Pretty much every safety- and mission-critical embedded software system is being challenged with complexity and uncertainty. Simulation tools are an important piece of ensuring that the deployment of such vehicles are fast, safe, and secure.
We are building a scalable solution to address this complexity based on our 20 years of robustness testing experience. This was briefly mentioned in the article, that we will discuss more openly soon.
