11. A Connected Autonomous Vehicle Emulator (CAVE) for Testing Multi-agent, Conventional–Autonomous Mixed Vehicle Traffic Scenarios

We discuss a software infrastructure that provides a virtual proving ground for designing, training, and auditing the computer programs used to pilot connected autonomous vehicles (CAVs). This effort does not concentrate on developing the piloting computer programs (PCPs) responsible for path planning in autonomous vehicles (AVs). Instead, we have established a first version of an emulation platform that changes the PCP design/test/improve process, which is often times carried out covertly , or in actual traffic conditions with potentially fatal consequences [45, 47].
