The industry is investing in autonomous driving technologies to move vehicle autonomy from level 0 to level 5, where level 5 is the deployment of fully automated driving.
The demand for ADAS will also increase the demand to provide safe, comfortable, and environmentally friendly vehicles. Safety, reliability, and robustness will be the prerequisite features for autonomous driving to achieve market success.
It is a challenge for the automotive industry to ensure zero incidences of malfunctioning during autonomous drives and to make self-driving vehicles mainstream. Achieving acceptable levels of safety and reliability will need substantial verification and validation activity. To make the journey towards autonomous driving successful, verification and validation is one of the most important factors to be worked on.
