    Abstract: Methods and systems for deploying an automated driving model include testing an automated driving model with a set of scenarios that include a single obstacle. The set of scenarios is pruned to include only those scenarios that do not result in a collision, but that may result in a collision with the addition of another obstacle. New scenarios are added to the set of scenarios to include scenarios that have an additional obstacle to form an updated set of scenarios. The automated driving model is tested with the updated set of scenarios. The automated driving model is deployed to a vehicle to control operation of one or more systems in the vehicle.
