The future of the Grand Cooperative Driving Challenge (GCDC).

Open innovation by the brightest minds from Europe! Cooperation and competition by multi-year challenges in the field of cooperative and automated driving; a learning-by-doing pressure cooker that generates new technology breakthroughs and speeds up the real-life implementation of cooperative automated driving.

After the successful GCDC in May 2016, the first ideas for continuation are currently being created and will be open for discussion in this session.

Scenario based safety validation. It is expected that testing of Cooperative and Automated Driving should include realistic driving situations. This makes testing an enormous task. This session will discuss using scenarios to make safety validation of Automated Driving manageable. Using naturalistic driving data, scenarios can be generated for virtual testing.
