An Accelerated Testing Approach for Automated Vehicles with Background Traffic Described by Joint Distributions
Huang, Zhiyuan; Lam, Henry; Zhao, Ding;
Subject: Computer Science - Systems and Control
This paper proposes a new framework based on joint statistical models for evaluating risks of automated vehicles in a naturalistic driving environment. The previous studies on the Accelerated Evaluation for automated vehicles are extended from multi-independent-variate ... View more
