Consistent evaluation of automated driving functions with Vehicle-in-the-Loop

A joint project of MdynamiX, IPG and the University of Applied Sciences Kempten

Automated driving functions have become an integral part of the automotive industry. Parking maneuvers, in particular, are well-suited for automation due to their low speed and small operating space. The challenge lies in ensuring that such functions are not only safe but also accepted by vehicle occupants. In this context, we demonstrate in cooperation with IPG Automotive and Kempten University of Applied Sciences, how a consistent evaluation of automated driving functions can be implemented with MXeval and a ViL vehicle. Challenges in Testing Parking Functions The increasing automation of parking functions poses complex and costly testing requirements for developers. Realistic…
