Advanced driver assistance systems are the future. Such highly safety-relevant systems require that the driving situation is always reliably detected under a wide variety of conditions. Data of the vehicle’s environment must be detected with cameras, ultrasonic or radar, for example, and evaluated and assessed together with road data and driving conditions to determine the correct reaction of the vehicle.
Often, such systems are classified as ASIL-D according to ISO26262 and so testing requires a high degree of accuracy and variation of the scenarios in order to really ensure that the system behaves correctly in each and every condition.
What makes testing of advanced driver assistance systems so demanding is that you must have control of your vehicle and also of the vehicle environment, thus the road, the weather, the light and visibility conditions, other road users and obstacles.
The testing and verification tool TPT makes testing of advanced driver assistance systems now much easier for you. Here is why:
1. Scenarios can be easily varied and combined with TPT.
2. TPT uses a natural description language, so it’s easy to set up the vehicle environment conditions and the driving scenarios.
3. You can write assessment rules in TPT to evaluate the test automatically after its execution.
But the most important thing is that you can now directly execute the test cases created with TPT in VTD by Vires. When running the tests, the vehicle environment and the driving scenario is automatically controlled by TPT dynamically and reactively. TPT also records the reactions of your test object and uses these collected measurement data for the automatic test assessment based on your assessment rules.
So, if you want to test advanced driver assisstance systems, you should take a look at TPT 15.
