“TÜV” Certification for Autonomous Cars


TÜV SÜD and DFKI develop platform for AI modules in autonomous vehicles  

TÜV SÜD, a German organization for technical monitoring, and the German Research Centre for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) have joined forces to create Genesis—an open, non-proprietary platform for continuous validation of AI modules in autonomous vehicles.  

Genesis stands for the genesis of a new generation of intelligent systems that will have a huge impact on people’s daily lives. In an effort to ensure the safety of autonomous driving, DFKI and TÜV SÜD developed certification for the AI modules required and training materials for AI concerning critical traffic situations. The ultimate aim is to protect vulnerable road users, such as pedestrians or cyclists. 

The activities are funded under the project REACT (Autonomous Driving: Modelling, learning and simulation environment for pedestrian behaviour in critical traffic situations) by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
