Exciting times: this week marks the start of testing for our StreetDrone autonomous vehicle, as we build towards an Autonomous Valet Parking demonstrator.
This first testing phase will be in a controlled environment to minimise risk. For that reason, we’ve chosen Turweston Flight Centre, which has previously been used by our friends at StreetDrone who have done some of their testing there.
In accordance with our project Safety Plan and the Safety Case for this phase of the project, we’ve also been busy collecting safety evidence prior to starting the live tests. These documents will be made publicly available as part of our goal to be as transparent as possible, and for those who wish to use them as a starting point for their own safety case.
For this phase, our safety evidence documents are:
- Safety Plan
- Safety Case Summary
- Risk Assessment and Method Statement
- Review of the Requirements
- StreetDrone User Manual
- Incident Reporting Spreadsheet
Stay tuned for our next update!
