The HEADSTART (Harmonised European Solutions for Testing Automated Road Transport) project aims to define testing and validation procedures of Cooperated, Connected and Automated Mobility (CCAM) functions including key technologies such as communications, cyber-security and positioning. The tests will be in both simulation and real-world fields to validate safety and security performance according to the key users’ needs.
The project main objectives are:
Identify the existing methodologies, procedures and tools for testing, validation and certification;
Harmonise the existing testing and validation approaches;
Define and develop test, validation and certification...
