This paper proposes an automated AV safety evaluation framework, Suraksha that quantifies and analyzes the sensitivities of different design parameters on AV safety. It employs a set of driving scenarios generated based on a user-specified difficulty level. It enables the exploration of tradeoffs in requirements either in existing AV implementations to find opportunities for improvement or during the development process to explore the component-level requirements for an optimal and safe AV architecture. As perception is a resource demanding task, we employ Suraksha to analyze the safety effects of using various perception parameters on an industrial AV system.
