The market introduction of automated vehicles has motivated intense research efforts into the safety of automated vehicle systems. Unlike driver assistance systems, SAE Level 3+ systems are not only responsible for executing (parts of) the dynamic driving task (DDT), but also for monitoring the automation system's performance at all times. Key components to fulfill these surveillance tasks are system monitors which can assess the system's performance at runtime, e.g. to activate fallback…

A Knowledge-based Approach for the Automatic Construction of Skill Graphs for Online Monitoring

This work proposes to formalize expert knowledge regarding skill graph construction into a knowledge base and automate the construction process, so that all changes in the vehicle's ODD are reflected in the skill graphs automatically leading to a reduction in inconsistencies and errors in the constructed skill graphs.

Towards a Consistent Terminology for Scenario-Based Development and Test Approaches for Automated Vehicles: A Proposal for a Structuring Framework, a Basic Vocabulary, and its Application

This publication aims to contribute to a consistent terminology for scenario-based development and test approaches for automated vehicles by proposing a framework to structure this terminology, and proposes a basic vocabulary within this framework by identifying and describing terms that are important for an overview of such scenarios.

A Review of Testing Object-Based Environment Perception for Safe Automated Driving

It is found that the realization of safety-oriented perception testing remains an open issue since challenges concerning the three testing axes and their interdependencies currently do not appear to be sufficiently solved.

Toward a Consistent Taxonomy for Scenario-Based Development and Test Approaches for Automated Vehicles: A Proposal for a Structuring Framework, a Basic Vocabulary, and Its Application

A basic vocabulary is proposed by identifying and describing terms that are particularly relevant to an overview of scenario-based development and test approaches and the relationships between them are illustrated as UML diagrams.

Phenomenon-Signal Model: Formalisation, Graph and Application

The basics, the structure and the application of the phenomenon-signal model are explained, which is a method for structuring the problem area and for analysing and describing this very signal.

Phänomen-Signal-Modell: Formalismus, Graph und Anwendung

Die zentrale Frage ist, welche Signale ein Automat im Straßenverkehr empfangen, decodieren oder senden muss, um konform zu geltenden Maßstäben and sicher zu agieren.

A System's Perspective Towards an Architecture Framework for Safe Automated Vehicles

This article extends established system viewpoints towards a capability-based assessment of an automated vehicle and conducts an exemplary safety analysis to derive behavioral safety requirements that can be attributed to different viewpoints in an architecture frameworks and thus integrated into a development process for automated vehicles.

Towards a skill- and ability-based development process for self-aware automated road vehicles

Insights from two research projects are combined for showing how a skill- and ability-based approach can provide a basis for the development phase and operation of self-aware automated road vehicles.

Ability and skill graphs for system modeling, online monitoring, and decision support for vehicle guidance systems

In this paper, the ability and skill graphs are introduced for modeling vehicle guidance systems in the concept phase of the development process (abilities), for online monitoring of system operation

Controlling Concurrent Change - A Multiview Approach Toward Updatable Vehicle Automation Systems

This paper presents an approach towards model-based integration and verification of a cause effect chain for a component-based vehicle automation system, based on experience from the project Controlling Concurrent Change, and presents a use case description for an environment perception system.

An Automated Vehicle Safety Concept Based on Runtime Restriction of the Operational Design Domain

This paper proposes an approach and architectural design for achieving maximum functionality in the case of system failures, and proposes modifying a runtime representation of the ODD based on current system capabilities.

Defining and Substantiating the Terms Scene, Situation, and Scenario for Automated Driving

This paper will review these definitions of interfaces on the perception side and come up with a consistent definition for each term, and present an example for the implementation of each of these interfaces.

Towards an Operational Design Domain That Supports the Safety Argumentation of an Automated Driving System

The operational design domain (ODD) of the automated driving system (ADS) can be used to restrict where the ADS is valid and thus confine the scope of the safety case as well as the verification.

Architecting Safety Supervisors for High Levels of Automated Driving

This work presents a problem formulation and a functional architecture of a fault-tolerant ADI that encompasses a nominal and a safety supervisor channel and discusses the sources of hazardous events, the division of responsibilities among the channels, and when the supervisor should take over.

Graceful Degradation Design Process for Autonomous Driving System

A graceful degradation design process to improve the automated driving continuation rate by defining degradation functions against performance limitation and hardware failure and a framework to calculate worst-case mode switch time (WCMST), which means the time duration from failure detection to degradation processing, by utilizing degradation design results is proposed.

Online Verification Concept for Autonomous Vehicles – Illustrative Study for a Trajectory Planning Module

The concept presented for the establishment of a Supervisor is designed in a way to identify and monitor an extensive list of features contributing to safe operation, and a safe overall (sub)system is attained.
