. Scalable Evaluation Methods for Autonomous Vehicles

Effective intelligent driving test and evaluation methods can improve the development and deployment process of autonomous vehicles (AVs). However, due to the extreme complexity and high dimensionality of driving behavior, how to objectively and efficiently evaluate the multi-dimensional performance of AVs in simulation and real-world environments is a long-standing problem. This paper proposes an objective multi-dimensional comprehensive evaluation (OMDCE) method that divides the intelligent driving test into four modules: test scenarios, scenario complexity model, simulation test platform, and automated evaluation system. The scenario complexity model is proposed to bridge the gap between the test scenarios and the automated evaluation system, thus enabling adaptive scaling of the evaluation scale for test scenarios with different difficulty levels. Besides, based on the existing four evaluation metrics for ego performance, altruism performance evaluation is first proposed to comprehensively portray AVs’ intelligence degree. The OMDCE method was evaluated by testing two different intelligent driving algorithms and conducting real vehicle testing. The experimental results demonstrated that the OMDCE method can effectively evaluate AVs in various scenarios and quantitatively measure their multi-dimensional performance. The proposed method reduces the subjectivity of manual evaluation and speeds up the evaluation. Moreover, it improves the universality and scalability of the evaluation metrics system.

. Multi-adversarial Testing and Retraining for Improving the Robustness of Autonomous Driving Policies

Autonomous vehicles, especially those based on deep reinforcement learning, are known for their susceptibility to the adversarial perturbations. To enhance their robustness, it is imperative to not only detect their decision errors through testing, but also fortify their robustness against these errors. This paper proposes an iterative optimization method that trains multiple adversarial agents with varying adversarial intensities to identify decision errors in the driving vehicle and enhance its robustness by retraining to counteract these adversarial agents. The effectiveness of the method is evaluated in a lane-changing scenario and the results demonstrate improved robustness of deep reinforcement learning based autonomous driving strategies compared to the adversarial reinforcement learning with a single adversary.

. Design and Research of Evaluation System for Intelligent Vehicles, Automotive Industry Science and Technology Development Foundation of Shanghai

This project focuses on intelligent driving and autonomous parking in the last kilometer of closed park areas. Utilizing data mining techniques for natural traffic flow analysis, the team has constructed 66 functional scenarios across 11 categories, totaling 558 specific scenarios. These scenarios are evaluated based on four dimensions: safety, comfort, driving performance, and standardization, forming a framework for automated testing and evaluation of intelligent driving vehicles. A comprehensive automated evaluation system has been developed, integrating simulation data and evaluation criteria, with evaluation reports accessible through a web interface. Additionally, the project has expanded into on-road testing, leveraging scenario libraries, automated toolchains, and evaluation systems. Some outcomes, including the automated evaluation system, simulation testing toolchains, and automated testing techniques for intelligent driving vehicles in the last kilometer parking scenarios, have been internally adopted by SAIC Volkswagen.
