IRT SystemX and the Japan Automobile Research Institute (JARI) have launched an international research collaboration to address the major challenges related to autonomous vehicle safety assurance.
The common objective of this collaboration is to develop and to share a common repository for the management of scenarios that can be applied to conduct the safety evaluation. The long-term ambition is to jointly contribute to a safer and global autonomous vehicle society. This collaboration reinforces the exchanges already initiated between the French Autonomous Vehicle Program (PFA) and the Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association (JAMA) and confirms the joint Franco-Japanese research and development efforts in the field.
IRT SystemX brings its scientific and technological expertise through its MOSAR platform (Methods and Tools for the Safety Assessment and Robustness analysis of autonomous vehicles). This technological platform notably allows the management of relevant scenarios for the demonstration of the safety of autonomous vehicles.
This cooperation is part of the IRT SystemX research roadmap for the safety of autonomous transport. The objectives of the institute in this area are twofold:
- design and validate more and more autonomous and connected transport systems in complex and open operational contexts, throughout their life cycles,
- strengthen the control of the security of these increasingly communicating, interoperable and evolving systems.
