Transportation Data Science Seminar Series: Soheil Sohrabi: How to Evaluate Automated Vehicle Safety with Limited Data?

September 9, 2021

8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Online via Zoom.
Meeting ID: 732 641 0814
Passcode: 575829

Speaker: Soheil Sohrabi, Doctoral Candidate, Zachry Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Texas A&M Transportation Institute.

Faculty Host: : Dr. Bahar Dadashova, Texas A&M Transportation Institute

Abstract: Automated vehicles (AV) are designed to perform dynamic driving tasks safely, but there are certain situations that AVs were faced safety challenges. Despite the fact that successful development and deployment of AVs is contingent upon their superior safety performance comparing to conventional vehicles, AV safety has not been validated yet. In this seminar, first, we will learn about the existing knowledge about AV safety evaluation and identify gaps in the literature. Then, a new methodology will be introduced that addresses some of the gaps in AV safety evaluations. This seminar will be concluded with the results of implementing the proposed methodology on AVs road tests data. This seminar series is co-organized by the Department of Landscape Architecture and Urban Planning, Transportation Institute, and Institute of Data Science at Texas A&M University.
