Cloud-based validation tool
Simulation and data-based testing are routinely employed to check the performance of autonomy methods, but do not provide sufficient safety guarantees.
How do you assess the success/failure of AD behavior during simulation or real road tests?
How do you decide if a planned trajectory is safe or not?
How do you validate the trajectories generated by your AD system?
What are the useful KPIs to be used? How to guarantee the KPIs are representing the desired safety goals?
The Validation Tool is used during development to give a concrete set of KPIs about the safety of the trajectories generated by the AD stack.
IVEX developed its formal model for safe driving. This model contains a minimum set of context-dependent constraints that define safe driving behavior. The Cloud-Based Validation Tool uses the model as well as the planned trajectory and perception information as inputs to evaluate which safety constraints are violated by the planned trajectory. The IVEX validation tool returns information about the safety of the planned trajectory using well defined KPIs.
The IVEX cloud-based validation tool is an objective assessment for validation of planning & decision making controllers during simulation.
The cloud based validation tools runs on AWS/AZURE.
The validation tool gives clearely definded success/failure criteria for autonomous driving behavior algorithms.
The cloud-based validation follows the SAAS model
