Nikkan Jidosha Newspaper's article about a plenary lecture by Professor Hideo Inoue, Advanced Vehicle Research Institute, at the Cabinet Office's “International Symposium on Automated Driving”
On Nov. 22nd, the Nikkan Jidosha Newspaper introduced in an article about the plenary lecture at the symposium by professor Hideo Inoue of Advanced Vehicle Research Institute.
The lecture was given at the "International Symposium on Automated Driving; SIP-adus Workshop 2021 held by the Cabinet Office” from Nov. 9th to 11th, 2021. It was about the latest safety verification technology that integrates virtual and real technologies under the theme of "Building a Driving Intelligence Validation Platform in virtual space”.
SIP Automated Driving
SIP phase2 "Extension of Systems and Services in Automated Driving", hereinafter referred to as "SIP Automated Driving", aims to contribute to solving social issues by reducing traffic accidents and congestion, ensuring mobility for people with traffic constraints, improving the driver shortage and reducing the cost of logistics and transportation services, and realizing a society in which all people can lead a high quality life by actualizing and expanding the use of automated driving. We are promoting research and development on common issues, cooperative domains, that should be tackled jointly by industry, academia, and government.
In the practical application and widespread deployment of automated driving, the most important issue is to ensure safety and reliability, and there is an urgent need to establish safety evaluation methods for automated vehicles.
The SIP Driving Intelligence Validation Platform, DIVP
The SIP Driving Intelligence Validation Platform, DIVP, project is led by our university and is a large-scale consortium of two universities and ten companies. In order to evaluate safety in various traffic environments, we have started to develop a simulation model that can be substituted for experimental evaluation in a real environment and that is highly consistent with actual phenomena. We are working on the development of a safety evaluation environment platform in a virtual space called DIVP, Driving Intelligence Validation Platform, based on this model.
