OpenSCENARIO 2.0 is about to be released with innovative expressiveness and abstraction to fuel revolutionary automation in AV development and V&V processes. We wanted to see if we could use this automation today, to efficiently validate products’ adherence to the recent UNECE level-3 ALKS regulation.
Foretellix announced today its ALKS regulatory solution, and jointly with Mobileye – demonstrated the use of this solution, combined with an RSS controller to verify full system regulation compliance.
What should you expect from the Foretellix ALKS flow?
Efficient scenario creation producing a massive number of tests to accurately capture the ODD’s regulation needs. The scenarios auto-adjust to any desired location or maps, explore the unexpected and unknowns with random intelligent value selections, and are easy to steer to meet user needs using simple spreadsheets.
Foretify scenario runtime adjustments monitor the unpredictable autonomous vehicle responses and adjust the other actors’ behavior to meet the user intent. This maximizes the value of each simulation, saves compute and human resources, and shortens the overall verification cycle.
Coverage is part of the reporting and a dashboard is presenting what regulation scenarios were actually executed and observed, as opposed to what the test requested. This is especially needed for automation functions like level-3 ALKS where the unpredicted Ego responses may invalidate the test goals.
Self-checking scenarios for both the regulatory and RSS rules. The pre-provided checks can be easily refined to meet user needs
It is important to note that in addition to the ALKS regulation package, Foretellix also provides a more extensive ALKS Verification & Validation package that goes beyond the regulatory needs and validates ALKS devices in multiple prone to error edge cases and unknown conditions such as other maneuvers, various road circumstances, stationary objects (like parked vehicles) and more. A comparison between the two packages is provided below.

More than 350 years ago, Sir Isaac Newton formulated the theory of gravity and laws of motion. These include the relationships between variables such as speed, time, distance, and acceleration that natural motions universally adhere to.
Safety, together with its Verification and Validation, is the largest unsolved problem in autonomous driving. Safety is also simultaneously a purpose, blocker, enabler, and expected consequence of autonomous driving. Solving it requires radical innovations exceeding those enabling core autonomy capabilities like Perception, Prediction, and Planning. This is because truly effective Safety solutions address not only technology but also mindset, development methodology, and culture. Foretellix is leading the charge, which makes it tremendously exciting to be here.
On July 20th, 2022, the Association for Standardization of Automation and Measuring Systems (ASAM) released its latest standard language and domain model for scenario-based testing – ASAM OpenSCENARIO® 2.0.0 (OSC2.0). OSC2.0 offers abstraction and power features to advance industry best practices.
