Specifications list


eVALUE is addressing active safety functions and their capability to perform through two courses of action: defining and quantifying the requirements of a safety function under a relevant traffic accident scenario and developing the testing and evaluation methods for the active safety functions of vehicles. WP2 aims at developing testing procedures based on the system descriptions and scenarios defined in WP1. The testing procedures will be integrated in WP3 and finally carried out and assessed in WP4. D2.2 takes the output of D2.1 and, where scenarios, safety functions and test procedures are related, defines the basis for the test procedures further developed in the next work packages. The test procedures are drafted, taking into account the future “testing protocols” and the “assessment protocols”. The document is structured according to the scheme followed from the project start, where tests are classified into “Design Reviews”,”Physical Testing” and “Laboratory Testing”. The test procedures are also classified depending on clustering different safety functions: “Longitudinal Assistance”, “Lateral Assistance” and “Stability”.
