Our vision

What we do


The urban environment represents one of the greatest challenges for automated vehicles due to the enormous complexity of traffic scenarios and the high diversity of potential road users. This complexity and diversity of urban traffic scenarios must be mastered safely and reliably for people to be willing to use automated vehicles in urban environments.

A key factor for the acceptance and introduction of this new technology is therefore the proof of safety, verification and validation of automated vehicles. This topic is the focus of the VVM project, which takes up the work of the PEGASUS project in the areas of testing and validation. It continues this work with the aim to develop a methodology for the proof of safety for urban driving, especially for the use case of urban intersections.

Developing testing methods

Up to now, the proof of safety for each new development has been obtained by means of lengthy and cost-intensive real-life tests. With the increasing complexity and ever shorter development cycles for automated vehicles, this approach is becoming increasingly difficult. For this reason, 22 prominent partners from industry and science are working in the VVM project to utilise the possibilities of digitalisation: In the interplay of simulations and real world tests, suitable methods will be found to demonstrate the safety of automated vehicles and to set standards for the establishment of safety verification in the industrial development process.

VVM's sister project SET Level concludes with final presentation

As part of the Pegasus-Family, the project SetLevel delivers important results concerning procedures and toolchains for simulation-based development and testing. Those results also play an important role for VV Methods. SET Level now reaches the finish line and will present the results in its final presentation. read more

Two methods from VVM presented in publications

To safeguard autonomous driving systems, it is necessary to know the operational environment - also referred to as the operational domain in the VVM project - in detail and to be able to analyze it. To this end, two new methods were developed in the project that address the stakeholder concerns with regard to the behavior of an automated vehicle in the operational domain. Two new publications in the project now present these methods. read more

VVM’s first results presented at the mid-term presentation

On 15 and 16 March, the VVM project partners presented their first results and methods at the virtual mid-term presentation. The two-day event offered the approximately 760 spectators deep insights into the work around verification and validation of autonomous driving systems in numerous presentations and an associated virtual exhibition. read more

The way to data acquisition

Data acquisition plays an important role in the VVM project. It was started at the beginning of this year and will be continued in the coming weeks and months. This is another important step in the progress of the project. read more
