ANSYS Approach to Ensure Safety of Highly Automated and Autonomous Driving - Application Brief

Highly automated and even autonomous driving is considered the key innovation in road transportation in the coming years. One of the big promises of automated driving is to make driving safer than it is today. The assumption is that replacing the human driver by automation systems would eliminate the weakest part of the chain that is the source of nearly 90 percent of all accidents. However, fulfilling this promise imposes new challenges to the development and analysis of such systems - not only to get them functional but at the same time ensuring the adequate level of safety.
