System Design for Assisted and Autonomous Driving

System Engineering that delivers safety and robustness

The introduction of Assisted (ADAS) and Autonomous Driving (AD) technologies poses a wide range of challenges for OEMs. In order to keep up with industry adoption of these technologies they are being rapidly integrated across entire fleet portfolios. These challenges include finding flexibility in the components and features provided by multiple suppliers, and improving end-user driving performance.

ADAS represents a huge cultural change for drivers who are comfortable and familiar with conventional vehicle design. It is up to OEMs to deliver a drive and ride experience that offers safety and robustness to promote user acceptance.

Rising to the Challenge

To help OEMs realize their goals and deliver finished products that meet market demands, AVL provides a range of system design services. AVL’s system development covers everything from definition of use cases to sensor specifications, performance benchmarking and target setting for ADAS safety and comfort features.

From system design of assistance functions to new autonomous driving solutions our system services are many and varied. They include:

  • System definition: feature concept including use cases, specification of function performances, legal/regulatory requirements like GSR, ALKS, etc.
  • Target setting: competitor benchmark, key performance indicators and objective target criteria, market localization of performance targets
  • System and functional requirements definition including system boundaries, traceability, sensor requirements
  • Functional safety (ISO 26262): Functional safety concepts, item definition, hazard and risk analysis, failure mode analysis, technical safety concept
  • SOTIF (ISO PAS 21448): Management of Safety of The Intended Function (SOTIF), function and system specification, SOTIF risk analysis, SOTIF verification and validation
  • DVP definition: test plan definition for sub-system integration, system verification and validation regarding function and performance targets


Why Partner with AVL?

Our open approach to system architectures and components from multiple third-party suppliers enables the development of flexible and cost-effective solutions. With long term contributions to projects at a variety of premium European OEMs, we already have a broad foundation of ADAS knowledge.

Final product features developed with AVL can achieve the highest market success. This is achieved by using in-house developed criteria, including technology for objective assessment of perceived safety and comfort.
