Electrification, automation of vehicle control, digitalization and new mobility are the
mega trends in automotive engineering and they are strongly connected to each other. Whereas many demonstrations for highly automated vehicles have been made world-wide, many challenges remain to bring automated vehicles on the market for private and commercial use.
The main challenges related to automated vehicle control are:
1. Reliable machine perception; accepted standards for vehicle approval and homologation;
2. verification and validation of the functional safety especially at SAE level 3+ systems;
3. legal and ethical implications;
4. acceptance of vehicle automation by occupants and society;
5. interaction between automated- and human-controlled vehicles in mixed traffic;
6. human–machine interaction and usability;
7. manipulation, misuse and cyber-security;
8. but also the system costs for hard- and software and development effort.
These challenges mainly relate to the complex interaction between the human occupants, the automated vehicle and the environment the vehicle is operated in (see Figure 1). The main system components and the related challenges are elaborated in the following.
