Automated vehicles will appear on public roads in the near future. In order to ensure the safety of automated driving, proven safety performance must be proven by vehicle owners, not only in normal situations, but also in the event of unexpected system failures or operating conditions. TNO can help vehicle manufacturers and their suppliers to prove functional safety.
