The automotive industry
is moving towards
Any automated system must undergo some form of verification and validation, even more so if it involves human safety in any way.
Autonomous driving systems fulfill both of these criteria
and as a result, need to be tested rigorously to make sure the system can recognize its surroundings properly and take necessary actions to ensure the safety of all actors.
Verifying and validating autonomous driving systems on public roads is not only physically impossible, but also testing prototype vehicles on the roads poses an inherent danger.
Compared to real road testing, MORAI’s simulation platform offers a safer option to test various edge cases that cannot be created on real-world roads, to verify and validate autonomous driving systems.
OEMs are at risk of unintentionally causing accidents on the road
leading to potential property damage, legal issues, and in the worst case, loss of life.
