AI-driven Testing of Driverless Cars

Use machine learning to test driverless cars.
Master

Driverless cars rely on artificial intelligence (AI) techniques. Unfortunately, AI is prone to biases. In case of driverless cars, this has been witnessed by high profile failures, such as a recent fatal Tesla autopilot crash. Therefore, there is a need to build robustness into driverless car technologies. Robustness entails developing methods that guarantee safety and dependability of learning in various operational scenarios. Testing is one crucial activity to ensure the robustness of an AI-based cars.

Goal

To address the challenge of testing AI-based cars, to ensure their robustness and safety, by combining knowledge in software testing and machine learning.
