Project

With the opening of the Road Traffic Act 2017 and the ongoing draft legislation on autonomous driving, the normative course for driving functions with a higher degree of automation has been and will be set at the national level. What manufacturers, suppliers, science-related research and science are missing in this context is a central scenario database.

Such a system could bundle traffic, environmental and road data for the evaluation of the traffic safety effects of the use of automated driving functions. So far, only a few singular data sources are available, which are only accessible to everyone to a limited extent. A merged database could generate a great deal of knowledge, on the basis of which the need for regulation can be determined and democratic debates can be conducted.
