SAE International has introduced its latest SAE Edge research report: “Unsettled Technology Areas in Autonomous Vehicle Test and Validation,” edited by Dr. Rahul Razdan.

The report explores automated driving systems (ADS) validation challenges by reviewing existing approaches and examining the effectiveness of those approaches, presenting critical techniques required to bring safe and effective solutions to market, discussing unsettled topics, and suggesting next steps for industry stakeholders to consider as they work to advance the ADS ecosystem.

The report editor, Dr. Razdan, is senior director of special projects at Florida Polytechnic University in Lakeland, Florida. He has 35 years of experience in startups, academia, and Fortune 500 companies working in such areas as science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education; autonomous vehicle technology; and semiconductor design. Dr. Razdan has led several successful startups in areas such as electronic design automation (EDA), wireless power, artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning (ML).

Designed to illuminate key issues in emerging and unsettled technologies of interest to the mobility engineering industry, SAE Edge research reports are constructed by industry experts to offer a unique voice, approach, and framework to drive conversations on a growing number of trends and topics. Each report provides a structured framework and methodical approach for thinking about and working with rapidly shifting technologies, helping to inform decision-making and strategy.
