University of Leeds (UoL) will use their HIKER Lab to explore the interaction of automated vehicles with pedestrians for the VeriCAV project.
Verification of Connected and Autonomous Vehicles
Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CAVs) are becoming increasingly sophisticated; yet questions remain around their safe deployment onto public roads. Simulation can help to answer many of these questions.
Running real-world vehicle safety tests is time consuming, resource heavy, and expensive.
Advanced simulation, improved modelling techniques and the creation of ‘digital twins’ will be critical in speeding up and reducing the cost of CAV deployment.
VeriCAV can recreate countless scenarios of varying complexity and run repeated trials in a fraction of the time with a fraction of the cost. This means CAVs can be validated and verified to a greater degree before they reach the road.

HIKER Lab will allow VeriCAV to gain a deeper understanding of Pedestrian movements and decision-making
White paper published by Horiba Mira
As part of the CAV2 project, HumanDrive, which Horiba Mira were also a partner of, Richard Hillman, Principal Engineer at Horiba Mira has written a white paper on “HumanDrive Test Methods for Interrogating Autonomous Vehicle Behaviour”. A paper which looks at the findings from the HumanDrive project looking at test methods for interrogating autonomous driving behaviour.
