ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) and AV systems use automated technology, such as sensors and cameras, to detect nearby obstacles or driver errors, and respond accordingly. They are developed to automate, adapt, and enhance vehicle systems for safety, maneuverability and improve customer driving experience.
These systems are gaining popularity as they reduce accidents and aid the driver to drive efficiently. They need to be tested for a wide range of conditions under which the system could fail to ensure efficient implementations on vehicles. This will require millions of miles of physical testing to validate the systems. Physical testing is not only expensive but also time-consuming. In order to effectively test and validate ADAS and AV systems for various failure conditions and test cases, simulations must be adopted.
