A Value-Driven Design approach for the virtual verification and validation of autonomous vehicle solutions

Abstract Autonomous vehicle solutions (AVS) are regarded as a major enabling technology to support the realization of ‘total site solutions’ in the construction equipment industry. Their full-scale deployment is hindered today by the need to test autonomous driving capabilities against the varying conditions an AVS is expected to be exposed to during its lifetime. Therefore, […]
