The system uses Foretellix's intelligent automation and analytic tools, which simulate hundreds of millions of driving scenarios, to improve safety and productivity levels on Volvo machines.
Volvo Autonomous Solutions plans to adapt the Foretellix's Coverage Driven Verification system for highway and mine use.
"The solution will validate autonomous vehicles and machines dealing with anything they might encounter within their specified operational design domain (ODD)," Foretellix officials said.
The solution has the ability to orchestrate large-scale simulations, and can also perform the big data analysis needed.
The companies will use Foretellix's open measurable scenario description language (M-SDL) to simplify capture, reuse and sharing of scenarios.
"[We believe] in a collaborative verification concept, one that uses open standards," Volvo global technology manager Magnus Liljeqvist said. "The partnership with Foretellix gives us access to the state-of-the-art verification tools and accelerating our time to market."
Foretellix CEO and co-founder Ziv Binyamini said the collaboration is a milestone for the industry.
"It is the first time that large-scale coverage-driven verification will be used for verification of ADs in confined areas. Our partnership will combine the expertise of the two companies and set a new standard in the verification of automated driving systems, boosting both safety and productivity."
