The event is targeted at professionals involved in testing and evaluation of automated driving. 

During the online workshop, experiences and lessons from recent trials will be reflected against methodology handbooks, such as FESTA and other frameworks, to identify gaps in current guidelines and processes. For example, there have been discussions on how to include operational design domain aspects in different evaluation phases – and strong development of simulation tools ranging from safety validation of single scenarios to those that cover urban and regional planning.

Methodological gaps and lessons identified in the workshop will be used as input to the CAD  Knowledge Base. They will also map the field for the upcoming CCAM actions. New evaluation activities will start next year, and projects’ goals and harmonisation between them are topical issues at the moment.

The workshop will begin with an introduction on Common Evaluation Methodology goals that have been discussed within CCAM; Tom Alkim from the European Commission will set the scope.

Most discussions will take place in break-out groups, to enable interactive participation.

Break-out topics 

  1. Large-scale and long-term testing: from prototype testing to mobility impacts
  2. National small tests: scenario testing, links between validation and evaluation
  3. Simulations and data: tool development, common definitions and databases

ARCADE is an EC-funded Support Action working towards cooperation and consensus building between stakeholders and R&I initiatives on a common approach to development and testing of Connected, Cooperative and Automated Driving (CAD) in Europe.
