With the release of the report on “Evolving Landsacpes fo Collaborative Testing for ADAS and AD" we provided valuable insight into how the industry today is leveraging different techniques and environments for testing of ADAS/AD.
After giving the industry some time to absorb the content of this report, we began ramping up follow-up discussions with a full day workshop on the 17th to review and discuss the next steps to take. All material of this workshop can be found here: Review
A main output of the workshop is the decision to setup an ongoing group for 2023 consisting of experts in testing for ADAS/AD.
This group will pursue two primary vectors (prioritizing these in followup discussions):
- Continue the discussions around the testing blueprint. Discussions in the near future will target, but are not limited to testing via fault injection, fault propagation and robustness (including cybersecurity aspects) as well as integrating V2X testing into scenario-based testing. It is expected that the output of these discussions will lead to additional releases of the testing blueprint and additional actions to take in the second vector below.
- Make the recommendations in the report towards standardization for testing actionable - initiate proposal groups that begin writing project proposals to start standardization projects at ASAM. These proposals will be subject to the usual proposal process in ASAM. As of now it is expected that at least one proposal will be prepared in Q1 2023. The overall goal of this vector is to address the complete test, from the high level test description to the low level description of the executable test logic. This includes, but is not limited to, proposals for:
- ASAM OTX Extension for scenario-based testing
- ADAS application model in ASAM ODS
- Continued development of the ASAM OpenXOntology to define a standardized ontology for test specifications
- A new test specification interface standard
