Description language measures safety of autonomous driving
Israeli startup Foretellix sees its raison d'être in making the safety of autonomous vehicles objectively measurable. For this purpose, the company has developed the situation description language M-SDL which can be applied to driver assistance systems and autonomous driving. Foretellix is now making the language available to interested parties.

M-SDL is described as the first open language to address the numerous vulnerabilities of today's formats, languages, methods and metrics for vehicle safety verification and validation.

In addition to disclosing the situation description language, Fortellix has made its language concepts available to the standards committee of the Association for Standardization of Automation and Measuring Systems (ASAM).

Furthermore, the company announced a partner program that provides a mechanism for industry feedback and further improvement of the M-SDL. Members of this program include vehicle development and verification companies including AVL List GmbH, the Volvo Group, Unity Technologies, Horiba Mira Ltd, TÜV Süd, Automotive Artificial Intelligence (AAI) GmbH, Metamoto Inc., VectorZero Inc., the Trustworthy Systems Laboratory of the University of Bristol and the Advanced Mobility Institute of Florida Polytechnic University.

According to experts, safety methods and metrics based on the number of kilometres tested in simulations and road tests, the number of human interventions or traditional methods are inadequate, not scalable and difficult to share or reuse.
