Safety Pool Announces 100,000 Self-Driving Test Scenarios Ready For Download
Over a decade ago I started advocating for having a large public library of simulation scenarios to test self-driving cars. Today, Deepen.AI, a company I am an investor/advisor to announces it has built such a library, in cooperation with the World Economic Forum and WMG University of Warwick and with involvement from many companies and government agencies. In the Safety Pool, people can build and contribute test scenarios, and in return get back manyfold from the contributions of other members. It's a win for everybody, and making all your competitors safer is actually good for your business -- an incident hurts the whole industry.
The Pool kicks off with 100,000 different scenarios you can run your self-driving car through in simulation to see that it handles them all, and fix the ones it doesn't. In time, it will grow to let you virtually test a car through any dangerous or complex situation anybody has ever seen or dreamed of.
