Simulation could tackle the ‘mammoth task’ of autonomous vehicle testing

Prototypes may already be on the road under human supervision, but the bulk of autonomous vehicle testing is being carried out on virtual roads, writes Freddie Holmes

An autonomous vehicle cannot be released on the market unless it is safe, but how the industry makes this assertion with confidence comes down to testing. And lots of it. Just as software has been developed to enable the car to drive, computing is also being used to generate highly accurate simulations of real-world driving scenarios.

As much as 95% of self-driving vehicle testing can be carried out…
