Safe Autonomous Vehicles?

13 May 2015

Can physical testing produce safe autonomous vehicles?

What proportion of safety spaces are covered economically in the physical testing of a vehicle? How much of dimensionally huge safety spaces does 1,000,000 miles of autonomous driving cover?

The limits of physical testing are imposed by design and state of vehicles; injury and death from intentional scenarios; pollution; location, roadway and weather conditions; and state of drivers and pedestrians. 
The limits imposed in simulated scenario testing using high-fidelity parameterized models are those of natural science, including physics and chemistry. Examples include unsafeness of DSRC, and fault-tolerant architectures for autonomous control.
