The route to safe automated driving

What is necessary to ensure safe automated driving? TNO aims to accelerate the process for automated vehicles to be allowed on public roads. With the use of specialised knowledge, validation software and test scenarios, TNO helps to provide convincing evidence to demonstrate the safety of these vehicles.​

Automated driving: the challenges

The future of automated driving depends on reliable safety validation of vehicles to ensure that they operate safely in all traffic situations. How do we safely get automated vehicles on the road? ​TNO is working on necessary innovations. To get in touch with our experts on this topic, join the Meet the expert sessions below.

  • What’s new in safety assessment for automated driving?

    Session 1 | 3 June

    Automated driving poses new challenges to safety assessment. TNO explains which safety concepts are still valid and which need to be extended. ​Meet Olaf op den Camp and Henk Goossens (TNO). Register now >

  • Safety Assurance, operationalising regulations & standards

    Session 2 | 13 June

    Standards and regulations for safety assurance of automated driving sometimes create more questions that answers. TNO provides a deeper insight into the key aspects of the most relevant standards and regulations.

  • The human reference for safe and social driving

    Session 3 | 27 June

    Automated vehicles should drive like a competent and attentive human driver, which includes a social and responsible driving style. TNO clarifies how driver behaviour can be assessed with respect to perceived safety. Register now >

  • AI, the solution and the challenge?

    Session 4 | 11 July

    AI is a very powerful solution for complex tasks in an automated vehicle. The safety and system engineering challenges for vehicles with AI components are however still an open question. TNO illuminates the underlying issues and the direction for solutions.
