2:30 PM Workshop A: Mile by Mile: Setting Up Your Test-Bed

Safety of passengers is highly prioritised in the development of Autonomous Vehicles. Test-bed aids the facilitation of more accurate research, subsequently ensuring functional and operational safety and security in the driverless cars. Pioneering test-bed acts as a pilot programme and can gradually expand to operational services. The aim is to gain public and transport regulators trust in self-driven road vehicles.

  • Defining private, semi-public, public test-beds and considerations involved in expansion of test area
  • Exploring dual function of testing the most critical functionality in the real world, while at the same time validating that the simulation in the virtual world is correct
  • Identifying scenario-based methodology to analyse country‚Äôs traffic conditions and driver behavior
