The German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) and TÜV SÜD are launching a joint project to certify systems based on artificial intelligence (AI) used in autonomous driving and develop a ‘roadworthiness test’ for algorithms. To do so, the experts will explore the learning behaviours of AI systems with the aim of being able to control the systems’ reactions. The main objective is to develop an open platform, known as ‘Genesis’, for OEMs, suppliers and technology companies. The platform will be able to validate artificial intelligence modules and thus provide the basis for certifications. The project highlights TÜV SÜD’s claim to the status of leading independent testing and certification organisation in the development of autonomous driving.
