The function of automated vehicles under different circumstances
There will be different types of automated vehicles developed for specific functions. Examples of this are vehicles for delivering freight, public transport vehicles, and automated personal cars.
The functional testing of automated vehicles will take place under a wide range of different kinds of circumstances. These differences may be in the area of infrastructure quality, weather conditions, and traffic conditions. These will all be tested against the desired functionality.
The different circumstances are:
- The location and driving characteristics: speed, acceleration, deceleration, driving through turns.
- The detection and control characteristics: the capacity to recognise standing and moving objects, taking appropriate actions, detecting infrastructures, finding roadways and routes.
- Interaction with traffic signs, signalling systems, and traffic management systems.
Experiments will involve both the capacities and functionality of the vehicles (the meaningful collaboration of various technical and software systems) under normal and exceptional conditions.
Accuracy of detection systems, the quality of the control systems (response time, correctness of actions), reliability, sustainability, and vehicle functionality form the general typifying evaluation aspects.
