Abstract—A large number of testing procedures have been
developed to ensure vehicle safety in common and extreme
driving situations. However, these conventional testing procedures
are insufficient for testing autonomous vehicles. They have to
handle unexpected scenarios with the same or less risk a human
driver would take. Currently, safety related systems are not
adequately tested, e.g. in collision avoidance scenarios with
pedestrians. Examples are the change of pedestrian behaviour
caused by interaction, environmental influences and personal
aspects, which cannot be tested in real environments. It is
proposed to use Virtual Reality techniques. This method
