(1) Japan-Germany collaboration VIVID project

The VIVALDI project in Germany aims to contribute to the safety validation of automated driving based on sensor modeling, which is in line with the aims of DIVP®. In this context, VIVAVDI (Germany) and DIVP® (Japan) started the collaborative project “VIVID” in October 2020 based on the framework of the collaboration between SIP-adus of the Japanese Cabinet Office and the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). Through this project, an automated driving safety validation system and interface standardization are being promoted.  

(2) Participation in ASAM, an international standards organization (Germany)

ASAM (Association Standardization of Automation and Measuring Systems) is engaged in a wide range of standardization activities related to automated driving. As DIVP®, we are participating in the Open Drive/Open Scenario, OSI (Open Simulation Interface), and other working groups, and are proposing perceptual interfaces and others.
