Driving a European testing and validation method for automated vehicles
While fully automated driving may be years away, the EU has identified connected and automated driving (CAD) as a revolutionary new transport system that can reduce harmful emissions and road fatalities. 17 partners from nine countries are working to define testing and validation procedures of CAD functions, including key technologies such as communications, cybersecurity and positioning. Deployed by the EU-funded HEADSTART project, tests will be conducted in both simulation and real-world fields. The project’s main objectives will be to identify existing methodologies and procedures, harmonise testing and validation approaches and develop validation and certification methods for CAD functions. Stakeholders will be able to join a dedicated expert network to configure, together, the methodology and its derived procedures.
