How to write AV scenarios (and some notes about Pegasus)

Summary: There are several approaches for verifying that Autonomous Vehicles are safe enough. The Pegasus project is one interesting, thoughtful attempt to do that (focusing initially on highly automated driving, not AVs). In this post I’ll summarizes a recent Pegasus symposium, and describe what I like about the approach and what is perhaps still missing. … More How to write AV scenarios (and some notes about Pegasus)

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

What’s new in AV verification: Report from the Stuttgart symposium

Summary: This is part one of my report about what I saw at the Stuttgart 2017 Autonomous Vehicles test & development symposium last week. This yearly symposium seems to be a pretty good place to get the feeling of what’s going on in AV verification (at least in Europe): There are several AV-related conferences, but … More What’s new in AV verification: Report from the Stuttgart symposium

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

HVC’2015 trip report

I attended HVC’2015 last week. Here is a partial, very subjective trip report. HVC’2015 was good. I attended the tutorial day and the first two conference days, though I was absent from most of the hard-core formal-verification sessions. Here are the main things I learned: The Bristol folks Kerstin Eder, Dejanira Araiza-Illan and David Western … More HVC’2015 trip report

My impressions from the Stuttgart Autonomous Vehicles Test & Development symposium

I travelled to Stuttgart to attend this first-of-a-kind conference. It was interesting for me, because (in Foretellix) I am trying to investigate how dynamic, constrained-random, coverage-driven verification (call it “CDV” – the bread-and-butter of hardware verification) can be extended for verifying complex socio-technical systems. This long(ish) post summarizes my impressions. I did not know much … More My impressions from the Stuttgart Autonomous Vehicles Test & Development symposium
