Defining Comprehensive V&V Strategies

Validation strategy for ADAS/AD.

  • Seamless integration of the new strategies into existing development processes
  • Close interlocking of system architecture and V&V strategies
  • Scenario-based testing
  • Using simulation models 

Task

Simulation and virtual tests that are used today for quality assurance of autonomous systems will in future be mandatory for the approval of automotive systems with automation level 2 and higher. It is therefore crucial for OEMs and suppliers to define the appropriate verification and validation (V&V) concepts for the autonomous vehicles of the future.

Challenge

To define a V&V strategy, the main focus lies on answering the questions how to test the performance of target functions in all conceivable scenarios and how to validate the functional safety of an intended function to be able to approve all functionalities. The V&V strategies no longer concern only the final verification of specifications but must be viewed as an integral part of the development processes. Standards for functional safety such as ISO 26262 and ISO 21448 (SOTIF) must be considered.

Solution

dSPACE Consulting helps you develop an integrated V&V strategy. The goal is to achieve more virtual testing while maintaining process reliability. The main focus is on methods that will be used during the verification and validation of complex E/E systems and on how these methods can be gradually expanded in the face of the increasing automation of driving functions.
