|Abstract:||Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CAV) promise exciting opportunities for societal benefits including improved road safety, reduced congestion and accessible mobility. To achieve these benefits and move from research prototypes and trials to full commercial deployments requires comprehensive and robust processes for system verification and validation (V&V).|
The complexity of CAV systems, and the potential severity of faults, results in a wide test scope beyond that previously experienced in the automotive industry. This talk will highlight some of the main V&V challenges and discuss a number of the latest approaches and initiatives designed to address them.
