What’s new in AV verification: Stuttgart report part two

Summary: This is part two of my report about what I saw at the Stuttgart 2017 Autonomous Vehicles test & development symposium. It covers frameworks, simulators, scenario definitions and extracting scenarios from recordings. As I promised in part one, here is the rest of my trip report from that yearly symposium. It will cover the … More What’s new in AV verification: Stuttgart report part two

The “Synthetic Sensor Input” problem in AV verification

Summary: This post discusses the annoying “Synthetic Sensor Input” (SSI) problem, i.e. the fact that it is very hard to synthesize realistic, synchronized streams of sensor inputs (e.g. Video+LiDAR+Radar). It explains why the SSI problem is a pain for Autonomous Vehicles verification (and for other things), and talks about the (imperfect) solutions. Let me start … More The “Synthetic Sensor Input” problem in AV verification

Finding bugs in autonomous vehicles: My impressions from the second Stuttgart symposium

Summary: This trip report describes my impressions from the Second Autonomous Vehicles Test & Design Symposium in Stuttgart. Short version: The design side is moving fast. The verification side has improved, but has a long way to go. Note: In my last post I talked about what automation will do to this planet over the … More Finding bugs in autonomous vehicles: My impressions from the second Stuttgart symposium
