ODD-driven virtual verification and validation of AD and ADAS – an OEM and suppliers perspective

The Operational Design Domain (ODD) concept will take a prominent role in future Connected & Autonomous Vehicles (CAV), as it is present throughout the entire lifetime of CAVs, starting from the requirements, via their development according to the requirements, up to their verification and validation before those CAVs gets certified and homologated according to ODD principles. After their homologation, CAV are ready to be deployed and therefore start to monitor their current operating conditions, to assess whether they are inside, outside or at the borders of their specified ODD they were designed for. In that light, it is obvious that the entire CAV value chain, including standardization and regulatory bodies, have to work together to successfully tackle this challenge.

The Roundtable aims to bring OEMs and Suppliers together to jointly discuss and outline their different viewpoints, needs and priorities to form a common roadmap and priorities enabling an efficient collaboration across the CAV value chain.

ODD-driven AD and ADAS verification and certification – a standardization bodies perspective

For designing, validating and homologating autonomous vehicle, it seems to be now well established that the process will be scenario-based. It will be massive in term of scenarios, unitary tests cases, and based on global data. The effort to develop the whole physical and numerical framework from the raw data and scenario detection to the real world driving through a scenario database, with scenarios for simulated test cases, simulation models, extensive simulation, but also validation criteria is also massive. It will need standardization for safety purpose and credibility of simulations on one side, but also to share the huge job in front of us !

The Roundtable aims to bring together researchers, users and developers of this eco-system to share current status in term of needs from users and proposals from developers, and define a road map and priorities in term of standardisation items.
