Over the last years, there has been a significant shift in the automotive industry from real-world testing to virtual methods when it comes to the assessment of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and automated driving (AD) functions. This trend can be seen at the regulatory site, e.g. UN regulation ALKS R157 which allows to use simulation to verify the safety concept of the Automated Lane Keeping System under specific conditions. Also, this change in the test methodology is addressed in the German funded projects like VVMethods, SET Level and in the EU funded project OSCCAR.
