The autonomous car technology promises to replace human drivers with safer driving systems. But although autonomous cars can become safer than human drivers this is a long process that is going to be refined over time. Before these vehicles are deployed on urban roads a minimum safety level must be assured. Since the autonomous car technology is still under development there is no standard methodology to evaluate such systems. It is important to completely understand the technology that is… 
Divergent Effects of Factors on Crashes under Autonomous and Conventional Driving Modes Using A Hierarchical Bayesian Approach
Influencing factors on crashes involved with autonomous vehicles (AVs) have been paid increasing attention. However, there is a lack of comparative analyses between influencing factors on crashes of


How safe is automated driving? Human driver models for safety performance assessment
A framework for safety performance assessment of automated driving is developed by combining the advantages of learning- and model-based approaches for incorporating human behaviour as a reference for assessment and which distance behaviour of automateddriving functions is optimal in terms of reduction of injury risk.
Driving Simulator Platform for Development and Evaluation of Safety and Emergency Systems
The main contribution of this study is to propose a driving simulator platform to develop and evaluate safety and emergency systems, in the first design stage, that has an advantage: a flexible software structure.
Identifying a gap in existing validation methodologies for intelligent automotive systems: Introducing the 3xD simulator
A standardized process which would benefit the industry both in terms of reducing costs of having varied processes, and by increasing customer confidence can be developed using a non-invasive platform like the 3xD driving simulator.
Challenges in Perception and Decision Making for Intelligent Automotive Vehicles: A Case Study
This paper uses learning from demonstration to construct a classifier for high-level decision making, and develops a novel set of formulations that is suited to this challenging situation: multiple agents in a highly dynamic environment with interdependencies between agents, partial observability, and a limited amount of training data.
Autonomous vehicles testing methods review
The related autonomous driving test works, including autonomous vehicle functional verification, vehicle integrated testing, system validation in different architectures, are reviewed to provide a reliable, quick, safe, low cost and reproducible method and accelerate the development of autonomous vehicle.
The need for an environment perception block to address all ASIL levels simultaneously
This paper argues why every functional safety requirement allocated to an environment perception block should preferable be instantiated four times, each with a different ASIL value.
Blaming humans in autonomous vehicle accidents: Shared responsibility across levels of automation
This article considers cases in which a pedestrian was hit and killed by a car being operated under shared control of a primary and a secondary driver and finds that when only one driver makes an error, that driver receives the blame and is considered causally responsible for the harm, regardless of whether that driver is a machine or a human.
Introducing ASIL inspired dynamic tactical safety decision framework for automated vehicles
The authors argue the need for a dynamic approach for automotive safety analysis by adapting the tactical safety for ADAS and AD systems depending on the real-time operational capability and real- time ASIL (Automotive Safety Integrity Level) rating of a situation, and discuss a framework for this process.
A Roadmap for Autonomous Vehicles: State Tort Liability, Automobile Insurance, and Federal Safety Regulation
Driver error currently causes the vast majority of motor vehicle crashes. By eliminating the human driver, autonomous vehicles will prevent thousands of fatalities and serious bodily injuries, which
The social dilemma of autonomous vehicles
Even though participants approve of autonomous vehicles that might sacrifice passengers to save others, respondents would prefer not to ride in such vehicles, and regulating for utilitarian algorithms may paradoxically increase casualties by postponing the adoption of a safer technology.
