The validation of automated, connected driving is a complex issue. A lot of intrinsic conflicts will make it difficult to fulfill and prove all expected and promised benefits and advantages for automated driving. Hence sophisticated methods and procedures are necessary for the safe and effective implementation of traffic automation. Scenario, data and simulation-based approaches promise to be the methods of choice. The given paper intents to demonstrate such a holistic, scenariobased approach for the example of energy efficient truck platooning, which can be seen as a special form of connected, cooperative, (semi-)automated driving. The content of the paper is taken from Connecting Austria, the Austrian lead project for automated driving, which puts the focus on the infrastructure aspects and support for automated, connected driving to induce more cooperative driving behaviors for improved traffic safety and efficiency. The development and validation approach is demonstrated upon the example of a complex combination of real-world intersections.
