We make it possible to expand the time and area for autonomous vehicles to drive safely, increasing the affordability and acceptability of autonomous driving services.
• ODD is the set of driving conditions under which an autonomous vehicle can operate safely. In order to increase the daily operating hour of autonomous vehicles and increase the service area, the ODD must be expanded. We analyze the sensors, communication devices, perception algorithms, operation devices, controls, and HMI of the self-driving vehicles to identify the types of failures associated with safety and service levels through FMEA methodology and optimize the ODD in our local climate and with the transport infrastructure. We conduct a variety of ODD scale-out tests at our local sites to attain the best ODD.
• With optimized ODD, daily operating hours and service areas can be expanded. Autonomous driving services can be more viable economically.
