In this paper, we will explore challenges for the validation and testing of Automated Driving Functions (ADF), which represent one of the major roadblocks for successful integration of emerging technologies into commercial vehicles. We provide an overview of current methodologies used for validation and testing, focusing on the missing parts. Furthermore, we give an insight into promising methodologies, frameworks, and research areas which aim to reduce current testing and validation efforts.
