ARCADE Project: Analysis challenges in the safety validation of automation technology

Due to the cancellation of the EUCAD 2020 Symposium, organised by the ARCADE initiative, with the support of the European Commission, the ARCADE consortium is hosting online sessions that look into some of the topics of the planned workshops, in cooperation with ERTICO.


The latest session, on 8 September 2020, focused on the current status and challenges in safety validation of automated vehicles as one of the key pieces to achieve a safer and more secure and transport system, as foreseen with the introduction of CAD on our roads.


The session looked into what is needed in order to create a commonly accepted safety validation framework. On-going work on harmonized test and validation methodologies were presented as well as research activities that address the new technical challenges arising from higher levels of automation. The importance of the human factors and interaction design as a key element to ensure ”fair” reliance of systems was brought up as well.
