Which roads lead us to highly automated driving?
With the advent of active driver assistance systems, the automobile industry is rapidly approaching its goal of autonomous driving. Needless to say, both safety and security remain vital concerns. This applies to the software-based interaction between sensors and actuators, but also to the task of ensuring effective protection against cyberattacks. As a result, the work of developing and validating such systems has mushroomed. To handle the broad range of tasks and for the sheer volume of data to be processed, a new set of development and testing procedures, based on virtual and smart technology, is required.
