O. Gietelink, J. Ploeg, B. De Schutter, and M. Verhaegen, "Testing advanced driver assistance systems for fault management with the VEHIL test facility," Proceedings of the 7th International Symposium on Advanced Vehicle Control (AVEC'04), Arnhem, The Netherlands, pp. 579-584, Aug. 2004.
This paper presents a methodological approach for validation of advanced driver assistance systems (ADASs), especially concerning fault management. Tools in this methodology are the unique VEhicle-Hardware-In-the-Loop (VEHIL) test facility and the associated simulation tool PRESCAN. With VEHIL the development process and more specifically the validation phase of intelligent vehicles can be carried out safer, cheaper, more manageable, and more reliable. In VEHIL a complete vehicle is tested in the simulation loop, such that the safety and reliability of an ADAS can be tested to great accuracy and reliability.
