This document describes the current test tools and capabilities established at NHTSA’s Vehicle Research and Test Center (VRTC) for researching the safety performance of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and automated driving systems (ADS) in a closed-course setting. This paper focuses on immediate and future needs for ADAS and ADS closed-course testing and the requirements for basic operation, coordination, and a scalable system that can perform repeatable and reproducible tests that require precise control of multiple actors in a realistic driving scenario of relevance to the system of interest.
