How to write AV scenarios (and some notes about Pegasus)


Interesting topic. How to cover all possible cases for autonomous driving ?

The Foretellix Blog

Summary: There are several approaches for verifying that Autonomous Vehicles are safe enough. The Pegasus project is one interesting, thoughtful attempt to do that (focusing initially on highly automated driving, not AVs). In this post I’ll summarizes a recent Pegasus symposium, and describe what I like about the approach and what is perhaps still missing. I’ll then use an example scenario to talk about spec bugs (and “unexpected bugs” in general), and their implications for verification frameworks.

What’s the right way to verify / certify AVs? And who should decide? These are open questions with no clear answers yet. So any meeting where regulators, AV manufacturers, simulator vendors and other stakeholders try to come up with a common vision for AV verification should be interesting to watch. And the Pegasus symposium (held in Aachen, Germany last November) was just that (though it centered on the simpler case of highly automated…
