Increased Safety for Automated Driving – Project SePIA Launched
June 15, 2017
The future technologies of automated and connected driving and Intelligent Transport Systems are making progress all around the world. Vehicles with automated driving functions have to achieve at least the level of driving skills of an attentive human driver. To improve the functional safety of these novel technologies in the future, the project SePIA (Scenario-Based Platform for the Inspection of Automated Driving Functions) will develop and analyze a complex validation platform for electronic subsystems and the overall vehicle under the coordination of the FSD GmbH.
The six project partners met on 15 June in Radeberg at FSD’s glass test stand. The consortium members include FSD, TraceTronic GmbH, the Fraunhofer IVI, the TU Dresden (Chairs of Computer Graphics and Visualisation & Automobile Engineering) and the Institute for Traffic Accident Research at Dresden University of Technology. The Fraunhofer IVI will provide accident data, process and detect the criticality of accident and report data and analyze the critical scenarios yet missing.
