Cyberphysical Attribute Testing in Vehicle Dynamics, ADAS, and Automated Driving

Günther Prokop, Technische Universität Dresden

Today`s development cycles must be cost-effective, fast, flexible, and resilient. Thereby product complexity and requirements on safety, sustainability, and performance are ever increasing. The V-model is thus supplemented by agile methods, which impacts how test and simulation methods have to be combined efficiently. Cyberphysical methods are designed to support this change in system engineering methods: 1. Cyberphysical prototyping: the vehicle is divided into subsystems, each of which can be developed using respective testrigs and/or simulation models. Testrigs and simulation models can be coupled in real time to form cyberphysical full vehicle prototypes. Digital twins of testrigs and highly advanced control concepts are required. 2. Human centered attribute development: cyberphysical prototypes can be experienced subjectively at every development stage, if coupled with a highly immersive driving simulator. Moreover, driver experience and driver behavior can be understood and predicted by feeding measured driver behavior into driver models. 3. Smart test environments for automation and connectivity: the cyberphysical prototype has to be considered in context to its environment (road space, informational radio connections). The appropriate test environment is to combine physical vehicles with simulators for several traffic participants. Prototypes for these instruments are being developed at TU Dresden. Their role in modern development is demonstrated in the presentation
