The Global Center for Automotive Performance Simulation (GCAPS) is currently working on creating a sensor degradation detection algorithm through simulation established by physical testing and naturalistic data. The Commonwealth Cyber Initiative (CCI) provided the funding for this project. The purpose of this algorithm is to enhance the reliability of the performance of automated driving systems by outlining possible sensor data that has broken down due to malfunction, environment, or offensive cyber-attacks.
The project uses the Virginia Smart Roads for sensor testing and naturalistic driving data for events used in the simulation. GCAPS is collaborating with VTTI and Old Dominion University on these efforts.
