Autonomous technology development injects new rigors on vehicle-development testing.

Engineers like a good challenge, and the development path for autonomous technologies is putting logical and creative thinkers to the ultimate test. “Use case and endurance testing-although highly relevant-are not enough to get to the confidence level that's needed before going into production with a highly-complex automated driving system. When you're trying to hit a metric that's 500 million to a billion miles of accident-free driving, you just can't drive that many miles, even in a decade. Challenges haven't stopped engineering progress in the past, and it isn't stopping progress now,” David Agnew, Director Advanced Engineering, Autonomous Vehicle Research for Mobis North America, asserted in a recent interview with Mobility Engineering.
