Test system specialist AVL and AD and ADAS verification company Foretellix are to partner on a coverage-driven and scenario-based verification and validation solution.
The companies state this will ensure safety while reducing costs and time to market for new AD and ADAS. The solution will be based on Foretellix’s Foretify, a large-scale scenario-generation and analysis-verification platform, and AVL’s Test Case Generator and Model.Connect products.
Through AVL’s scenario and KPI libraries and Foretellix’s verification packages, customers will gain access to a broad range of scenarios and KPIs used for testing. Especially in test case optimization, AVL’s Test Case Generator, together with Foretellix Foretify, should help customers to achieve massive scale generation of tests, which helps to cover the entire test space of ADAS/AD, while reducing test efforts and improving test processes. Exploration and edge case discovery capabilities will thereby be enhanced.
Thanks to the integration between Model.Connect and Foretify, test case execution can be easily integrated in the customer’s virtual testing toolchain, the companies state. Model.Connect provides a broad virtual testing ecosystem with numerous interfaces for different simulation tools on the market. Further, it empowers the solution to be used in different x-in-the-loop environments and provides high flexibility and openness to customers, which is in synergy with Foretify’s testing platform agnostic approach.
“AVL’s Test Case Generator optimizes the creation of tests to be executed through intelligent methods, such as road statistics or ontologies; with Foretellix Foretify integrated by Model.Connect into virtual testing environments we lever coverage driven scenario-based validation to the next level,” said Tobias Düser, head of ADAS/AD Virtual Testing Solutions at AVL.
