Research Topic

BEtter Scenario Testing (BEST)

BEST develops a novel methodology and technology for deriving tests from scenario types and technology for generating scenario types from recorded drives. The main research goals of BEST include the provision of quantitative guarantees on the quality of scenario types and the required quality of tests. In particular, this ambitious proposal is structured into five topics of research: developing methods for better test case generation; moving from testing cars to testing C2X; mining scenario types and comparing them to manually derived types; understanding the diversity of scenario types, and developing a living set of scenario types.
