Introduction and Objectives
Vehicles with automated driving functions have to achieve at least the level of driving skills of an attentive human driver. Measures to guarantee the required level of functional safety are needed all throughout the development process and especially the life cycle of automated vehicles and their electronic components. The main objective in SePIA is to develop a complex validation platform for electronic subsystems and the overall vehicle. This will be achieved by using real scenarios with extensive accident data, information from accident reconstruction reports as well as vehicle data and video recordings. The platform will be tested and demonstrated in a hardware/software application environment.
