In this paper some of the latest HORIBA MIRA developments on systems for the simulation and development of automated vehicles are introduced. For the structured environment case the emphasis is on the longer term research challenge of developing systems for cooperative automated driving allowing the benefits in both safety and efficiency to be realised in the future. This includes developments on traffic simulations and management systems since these will also be key to reaching the longer term vision of cooperative autonomous driving. For the unstructured environment case the emphasis is on the shorter term development challenge of engineering unmanned vehicles that can be safely and reliably deployed in demanding customer specific off-road environments. Finally, some conclusions and a selection of future works are presented.
