This test plan documents the procedures that were used to verify that the Integrated Vehicle-Based Safety Systems (IVBSS) light vehicle platform met all its performance requirements. The document was prepared by Visteon Corporation in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Transportation (U.S. DOT) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The test procedures described in this document were used to assess whether the prototype light vehicle integrated system performed as intended and meets its performance requirements. These tests were also used to identify areas for system improvement to ensure system repeatability, robustness and readiness. The test plan describes each of the test procedures and includes the following details: 1. Test scenarios and conditions (e.g., speeds, closing speeds, road geometry, etc.); 2. Procedures and protocols to run the tests; 3. Pass/Fail criteria for determining repeatability and robustness; and 4. Performance metrics or measurement variables that were used to evaluate system performance when compared to an independent measurement system.
