Application: Generating unknown-unsafe scenarios, improving automated vehicles, and computer system (Patent ID: US20240092394A1)

The patent filed by Siemens AG describes a computer-implemented method for generating unknown-unsafe scenarios to assess and improve the safety of automated vehicles. The method involves providing a variety of scenarios and then reducing them to scenarios that are unknown-unsafe, based on severity indicators related to criticality over time. This process helps in efficiently designing and testing automated vehicles for safety.

Furthermore, the patent details a method for improving the safety of automated vehicles by utilizing a driver assistance system that can be configured with ADAS-parameter settings based on simulations of unknown-unsafe scenarios. By testing different parameter settings and selecting the most effective ones, the driver assistance system can be optimized for better performance in handling potential safety risks. This approach allows for proactive safety measures to be implemented in automated vehicles, enhancing their overall safety and reliability on the road.
