(Adnkronos) – VeriServe Releases an Experiment and Evaluation Solution for CASE/MaaS
TOKYO, May 19, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — VeriServe Corporation (headquarters: Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo; CEO: Yoshiyuki Shinbori) is delighted to announce that it will launch the Comprehensive Support Service for Field Test Evaluation on May 19, 2022. This is a one-stop offering for systems that require field tests in autonomous driving (AD) and advanced driver assistant systems (ADAS). Systems for AD/ADAS are constantly progressing forward, and we offer total support to boost the level of quality in development work for a wide range of products and services such as by checking the functionality of on-board devices and related applications while driving real vehicles.
1. Background behind the Launch of This Service
Competition is growing fierce regarding the development of systems used in AD/ADAS, with new systems being launched to the market at a regular pace. Research and development efforts continue to improve as well. As a result, there is a huge number of complex software applications installed in every single vehicle. In light of these trends, the human-vehicle interface in the cockpit (in and around the driver seat) has also become more sophisticated.
System verification and evaluation work is often conducted within a virtual simulation, but there is an increasing need to carry out field tests using real vehicles on public roads to ensure reliability. With a growing trend for information to be displayed digitally in vehicles, there is a need to verify quality in terms of visibility, operability, and convenience of mobility, as well as comfort in the cockpit.
However, it is difficult for clients to carry out field tests using real vehicles as it requires considerable effort and resources to arrange for test drivers, to design routes, and to manage the field test.
At VeriServe, we have supported efforts to boost software quality for about 40 years through our verification services across a wide range of fields. We also offer support in designing efficient routes for driving while leveraging our extensive track record and knowledge from field tests using real vehicles, as well as the tools that we developed through these field tests. Our achievements in high-quality field tests are a product of our ability to communicate in English with both Japanese and international manufacturers in the automotive industry.

3. Service Flow
Based on an analysis of your requirements, we will design routes and create a plan for driving, and we will also arrange for vehicles, drivers, and engineers. We offer total support to boost the level of quality in development work for a wide range of products and services, such as by checking the functionality of on-board devices and related applications while driving real vehicles equipped with multiple devices on public roads at home and abroad.
4. Service Features and Our Strengths
(1) Extensive track record in drive-testing at home and abroad
We boast a strong track record in field tests using real vehicles in 25 countries around the world. We can also assign Japanese engineers who can communicate in English to undertake work, as this is required when checking the functionality of on-board devices or evaluating the cockpit and related applications from overseas suppliers.
(2) Abundant achievements that supported the design of optimal routes
We provide comprehensive support by our proprietary systems: the FT Map System*2 that helps with designing drive routes, and TREES*3 that integrates different aspects for evaluation.
(3) Comprehensive evaluation support for linking connected platforms with vehicles
We provide comprehensive evaluation*4 support while working from a broad range of perspectives to link vehicles with applications, such as in the following areas:
(4) Proven flexible response
It is vital to handle and respond to a wide range of sudden and unexpected events (risks) that may occur throughout the process, such as rescheduling due to delays in development, redesigning test routes due to natural disasters or bad weather, and re-collecting data due to issues with recognizing road signs for obstructions. We flexibly respond to many different events that pose the hazard of delaying the entire project.
(5) Continued service updates in line with the advancement of IT
We update location data on charging stations as EVs gain popularity. We also work to update fleet management and safe driving measures, we collect and accumulate data for on-board devices, and we quickly adopt new guidelines and directions set through the activities of relevant organizations. Through these efforts, we expand and improve our services to help our clients always keep up-to-date with activities for boosting quality.
The automotive industry is currently experiencing a once-a-century sea change.
The evolution of advanced technologies such as autonomous driving, AI, and IoT is expanding the possibilities for mobility. We view these changes in the business landscape as an opportunity, and we will help realize safe and comfortable mobility for society by offering high quality services that are unique to VeriServe.
