utomated Driving (AD) technology is anticipated to be a key aspect for achieving a higher level of road safety, a further reduction of harmful emissions, improving traffic flow, increasing comfort and ensuring mobility for all, including elderly and impaired. As AD technology is rapidly being developed, an increasing number of driving tasks in vehicles is currently being taken over by automation in Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). With the transition towards Connected and Automated Driving (CAD), automation is expected to further increase until the driver is completely out of the driving loop. An important aspect in this continuous development is the safety assessment of the road worthiness of these new functions and systems.
