Improved quantitative driver behavior models and safety assessment methods for ADAS and AD (QUADRIS)

Reference number
Coordinator Volvo Personvagnar AB - 91400 Volvo Cars Safety Centre
Funding from Vinnova SEK 8 682 000
Project duration April 2021 - March 2025
Status Ongoing
Venture Traffic safety and automated vehicles -FFI

Purpose and goal

For efficient development of advanced driver support systems and self-driving cars, it is necessary to be able to assess their potential safety benefit during development. QUADRIS wants to improve three parts of the simulation-based process used for such assessments. First, we want to develop methods that ensure that the collisions simulated are representative. Second, we want to develop a validated driver model for run-off-road accidents. Third, we want to expand the driver modeling so that it also includes self-driving cars in the form of so-called reference-driver models.

Expected results and effects

Having the capacity to perform safe, fast and accurate safety benefit assessments for ADAS and AD during development will be essential for the Swedish automotive industry to stay competitive; and even more so when automated driving becomes a key determinant of brand success and competitiveness.

Planned approach and implementation

The project will run for four years and the work is centered around the three doctoral students who will carry out most of the work. This includes both data collection, building simulation structures and doing modeling to the extent needed to meet the goals within each work package.

The project description has been provided by the project members themselves and the text has not been looked at by our editors.
