How many operational design domains, objects, and events?


A first step toward validating an autonomous vehicle is deciding what aspects of the system need to be validated. This paper lists factors we have found to be relevant in the areas of operational design domain, object and event detection and response, vehicle maneuvers, and fault management. While any such list is unlikely to be complete, our contribution can form a starting point for a publicly available master list of considerations to ensure that autonomous vehicle validation efforts do not contain crucial gaps due to missing known issues.
