KREMS, Austria - Jan. 26, 2023 - PRLog -- Developing realistic crash scenarios and simulations of future traffic situations involving many autonomous vehicles is at the heart of a recently established project at IMC Krems – University of Applied Sciences (Austria). In the first step of the project, driving scenarios extracted from publicly available databases will be fed into specialized driving simulations. Following this, an optimization process based on state-of-the-art search algorithms will create novel driving scenarios with increased criticality and severity. The project is part of a large EU-funded international research effort aiming at developing safety mechanisms for autonomous cars that reduce accident-related consequences by using advanced manufacturing technologies.

Autonomous cars could significantly reduce the number of traffic accidents. In future that is, as of now they are still involved in crashes, some with fatal consequences. This calls for improving the safety of such vehicles. However, achieving an optimization remains difficult as simulating crash scenarios of mixed traffic situations (i.e. involving cars with different levels of autonomy) is hampered by a scarcity of relevant data. A project at IMC Krems, Austria, is going to change this by harnessing the power of purpose-developed machine learning algorithms that will extract and analyze data from existing car crash databases.
