Autonomous Vehicles

DV7 Engineers are now involved with the ever-evolving world of “autonomous vehicles”. We are providing complex product and software development solutions for many companies in this still infant industry. This industry involves drones, cars, trucks and even naval vessels. Few teams can match the level of safety critical expertise of DV7. Whether you are a startup, adding functionality, or need to be guided through the safety critical aspects of this industry, DV7 can help. The need for (IV&V) Independent Verification can be daunting since you need a fully funded and independent group to do this. Add to that the fact that the documentation can be overwhelming. Trust in the fact that DV7 can guide you through these processes to insure your product, and/ or software is; designed, documented and tested in the proper fashion for the certification required for;

This kind of technologically advanced product needs a team that has been there and done that. That is DV7 Engineering.

IV&V Independent Verification & Validation

IV&V- Independent Verification & Validation is an engineering process employing rigorous methodologies, and the use of tools for evaluating the correctness and quality of the software product throughout the software lifecycle. Software IV&V is adapted to the characteristics of the project, and the level of criticality.

IV&V the DV7 way;

  • Includes risk identification and mitigation techniques
  • Provides independent evaluation and assessment of:
    • Are we building the product correctly? Which is verification
    • Did we build the correct product? Which is validation
  • Requires technical, managerial and financial independence see figure 1.
  • Makes a value added contribution, everyone shares the same mission and success objective
    • Provides management with project assurance
    • Provides project management with unbiased source of help and review
  • Helps Deliver
    • Risk identification and mitigation
    • Increased quality and safety
    • Improve timeliness and reliability
    • Reduced rework and cost

The DV7 Way vs. the wrong way of developing and testing

Bad requirements and bad testing (low cost), lead to high % of escapes. Leading to rework, delays and much higher cost. Worst case, catastrophic failure, injury and loss of life.
