From last-minute cut-ins to impromptu U-turns, human drivers can be incredibly unpredictable. This unpredictability stems from the complex nature of human decision-making, which is influenced by multiple factors and varies across different operational design domains (ODD) and countries, making it difficult to emulate in simulation. Yet, autonomous vehicle (AV) developers need to confidently develop and…
