Autonomous Vehicles (AV) are expected to bring considerable benefits to society, such as traffic optimization and accidents reduction. They rely heavily on advances in many Artificial Intelligence (AI) approaches and techniques. However, while some researchers in this field believe AI is the core element to enhance safety, others believe AI imposes new challenges to assure the safety of these new AI-based systems and applications. In this non-convergent context, this paper presents a systematic…

Challenges in Autonomous Vehicle Validation: Keynote Presentation Abstract
TLDR
There is reason to believe that checking autonomy behaviors for safety is easier than implementing perfect, optimized autonomy actions, and an approach that can help with the requirements, design, and adaptation problems is basing a safety argument not on correctness of the autonomy functionality itself, but rather on conformance to a set of safety envelopes.
