Evaluation Methodology for Cooperative ADAS Utilizing Simulation and Experiments
Wireless vehicular networks are to be deployed in both Europe and the USA within upcoming years. Such networks introduce a new promising source of information about vehicular environments to be used by cooperative advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). However, development and evaluation of such cooperative ADAS is still challenging. Hence, we introduce a novel methodology for their development and evaluation processes. It is applied to evaluate the fulfillment of requirements on position accuracy information within exchanged messages. Such requirements are only roughly defined and not sufficiently evaluated in field tests. This holds especially for Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) optimized for maximum integrity of obtained positions. Such configuration is required to increase robustness and reliability of safety critical ADAS. We find that pure GNSS-based positioning cannot fulfill position accuracy requirements of studied ADAS in most test cases.
