PAVE’s Safety Experts state their own approach is Reckless and Untenable
It’s all here — https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=45mJGYiqrxY&feature=youtu.be
Over and over again the three human factors experts state handover L2/3 cannot be made safe enough to be used to develop and test these systems in the public domain. They state the obvious. You cannot provide humans enough time to regain proper situational awareness in time critical systems, people zone out no matter what you do and it gets worse as these systems get better. Unfortunately, these folks offer no real solution. That is because they are unaware DoD/aerospace simulation technology can create a legitimate digital twin. This will facilitate most of the public shadow and safety driving be moved to it from the real world. (Of course that simulation is informed and validated by the real world) The current simulation technology being used cannot come anywhere close to being able to do this because they have severe technical limitations brought on by using gaming technology and approaches.

We are building an aerospace/DoD/FAA level D, full L4/5 simulation-based testing and AI system with an end-state scenario matrix to address several of the critical issues in the AV/OEM industry I mentioned in my articles below. This includes replacing 99.9% of public shadow and safety driving. As well as dealing with significant real-time, model fidelity and loading/scaling issues caused by using gaming engines and other architectures. (Issues Unity will confirm. We are now working together. We are also working with UAV companies). If not remedied these issues will lead to false confidence and performance differences between what the Plan believes will happen and what actually happens. If someone would like to see a demo or discuss this further please let me know.
