Six driving-route modes in different levels of complexity are planned, according to the test facility’s configuration/layout and auxiliary equipment, which are purpose-built and -installed by referring to domestic urban/suburban traffic environment (pick up/drop off, pedestrian crossing, temporary parking etc.); top-10 bad driver behaviors; and analytic statistics of “vehicle accident types vs. road categories”. The categorization also includes relevance variations to pedestrian/driver behaviors, accident vs. road type, and an autonomous vehicle’s ability to identify pedestrian/vehicle/traffic sign/driving lane (straight, curve…etc.).
6 driving modes are divided into 2 LEVELs:
BASIC: On simple routes, the vehicle DOES NOT NEED to continue going after completes a single-item test and reacts properly.
ADVANCED: On complex routes, the vehicle NEEDS to continue going back to the start after completes multiple-item tests and reacts properly.
