Johannes Will is presenting a solution study Using machine learning algorithms as part of reliability analysis workflows for Digital Validation of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems on September 29 at 9AM.

Digital event-based validation is a key element to validate and verify L3 and higher level of automated driving systems. The presentation addresses challenges of digital validation using reliability analysis approaches, like fitting appropriate distribution functions for uncertainty definition, understanding which uncertainties will dominate the risk, using machine learning for sensitivity analysis and metamodeling, and using advanced reliability analysis methods for reliable estimates of risks. Workflows of reliability algorithms and machine learning will be introduced which are used by our customers as one pillar to successfully certify ADAS Level 3 systems.

  • Digital Verification of automated driving systems
  • Uncertainty Definition is a key for quantification of safety
  • Importance to understand the driver for response variability
  • How to overcome the exorbitant costs of Monte Carlo Sampling quantifying rare event probabilities

He will also be moderating AI Certification Café and exploring the question What new tools are needed to certify AI in critical Autonomous Driving Systems?

  • How important is digital validation – simulating driving scenarios – for your ADAS certification strategy?
  • Which kind of stochastic analysis method do you use for the quantification of risk/safety?
  • Are AI/ML methods part of your ADAS certification process?
  • What kind of AI/ML methods do you use and what are you addressing with AI/ML?
