Scholliers, J. Koskinen, S. Varhelyi, A. Schönebeck, S. Publication year 2012 Abstract interactIVe introduces safety systems that autonomously brake and steer. The driver is continuously supported by interactIVe assistance systems. They warn the driver in potentially dangerous situations. The systems do not only react to driving situations, but are also able to actively intervene in order to protect occupants and vulnerable road users. The objective of interactIVe is to develop new integrated Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) for safer and more efficient driving. Seven demonstrator vehicles – six passenger cars of different vehicle classes and one truck is being built up within this project to develop, test, and evaluate the next generation of safety systems. The purpose of this deliverable is to present the test and validation plans for the specific functions and outline the assessment of the test procedures which includes studying the feasibility of conducting test scenarios, setting up and running tests and obtaining data on the indicators. It also includes a methodology for safety impact assessment and an overview of the tools and equipment that will be used during the process. The tests will reveal how the functions work according to function description, requirements and also how the functions are accepted and received from a user perspective by accepting or rejecting the proposed hypotheses and obtained answers for research questions on the definition of relevant aspects to develop Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). In order to evaluate the developed ADAS, an evaluation framework is required. Therefore, a subproject called “Evaluation and Legal Aspects” is part of the interactIVe project which main objective is to provide this framework and give support to the vertical subprojects in their evaluation work. The evaluation of the interactIVe functions has been divided in three main categories: - Technical Assessment to evaluate the performance of the developed functions and collect information and data for safety impact assessment. - User-Related Assessment to assess the functions from the user perspective, and also to provide further input to the safety impact assessment. - Impact Assessment to estimate how and how much the functions influence traffic safety. The three vertical subprojects SECONDS, INCA and EMIC together involve 11 different functions with a wide range of target areas. The developed ADAS comprise the following systems; - SP4 “SECONDS” dealing with functions, which support the driver continuously in the driving process. These functions should not only support the driver in dangerous situations, but help the driver to avoid them. - SP5 “INCA” dealing with functions, which combine longitudinal and lateral control of the vehicle in order to prevent imminent accidents. The INCA functions’ focus is not only on the collision avoidance in rear-end conflicts, but also in other types of conflicts, like blind-spot or run-off the road conflicts. - SP6 “EMIC” deals with critical pre-crash applications, where collision mitigation can be realised at a reasonable cost. It needs to be pointed out that this deliverable provides a plan for testing and evaluation of the interactIVe functions for an “ideal” situation based on currently available information. The “ideal” situation means that the demonstrator vehicles are fully equipped with the planned systems and they are ready and available for testing under the necessary conditions. There may be deviations from this “ideal” situation; then adaptation of the test plan will be necessary. Deviations are not only to be expected from the technical side, but also the available resources may be an issue.
