Robust Validation of ADAS and AD reaching the required safety levels is a major stake for car makers to ensure and demonstrate the safety of drivers and road users. To achieve this goal, car makers carry out several million kilometers of test drives to test vehicles in a maximum range of driving situations and conditions. This process is not optimal both in terms of cost due to the accumulation of miles and lack of capitalization for edge cases.Therefore, a design-based Simulation scenario is a key solution to master costs and increase plan coverage to obtain robust and repeatable Validation.
