  author={Till Menzel and Gerrit Bagschik and Markus Maurer},
  journal={2018 IEEE Intelligent Vehicles Symposium (IV)},
The latest version of the ISO 26262 standard from 2016 represents the state of the art for a safety-guided development of safety-critical electric/electronic vehicle systems. These vehicle systems include advanced driver assistance systems and vehicle guidance systems. The development process proposed in the ISO 26262 standard is based upon multiple V-models, and defines activities and work products for each process step. In many of these process steps, scenario based approaches can be applied…

A Taxonomy for Quality in Simulation-Based Development and Testing of Automated Driving Systems

A conceptual taxonomy is proposed to better understand quality in the development and testing process to have a clear separation and insight where further testing is needed – both in terms of automated driving systems and simulation, including their simulation models and scenarios used for testing.

Identification and Quantification of Hazardous Scenarios for Automated Driving

We present an integrated method for safety assessment of automated driving systems which covers the aspects of functional safety and safety of the intended functionality (SOTIF), including

There are significant differences and shortcoming in the modeling capabilities of the existing research and that methods of each strategy usually target a specific driving task level, revealing the need for more comprehensive metrics to assess complex scenarios.

Analyzing Real-world Accidents for Test Scenario Generation for Automated Vehicles

A novel accident data analysis method for generating test scenarios where UK's Stats19 accident data is analyzed to identify trends in high severity accidents for test scenario generation and a logistic regression approach is built, derived from conventional regression models.
