IAMTS & CITA Form Collaborative Effort Toward Automated Driving Systems Lifetime ComplianceDaniele D'Onofrio
A Long-Term Goal to Develop Guiding Principles to Ensure Vehicles Remain Safe on the Road.
The International Alliance for Mobility Testing and Standardization (IAMTS) and CITA have announced a partnership to develop recommended best practices to ensure that automated driving systems remain safe and effective on the road for the life of the vehicle. These practices should close “gaps in standards and regulations for successful global market access and identify technical needs for safe/secure performance in the market”
The partnership was launched at the IAA Mobility trade event in Munich on 9 September. The meeting was chaired by the Chairman of the IAMTS Executive Committee, Alexander Kraus, and the President of CITA, Gerhard Müller. They pointed out that confirming the roadworthiness of vehicles is a common goal worldwide, but that technological advances in mobility will add new challenges to “whole-life compliance activities”. The work should take into account existing legislation, standards and guidelines and recommend solutions to fill regulatory or standardisation gaps to ensure the “safe and secure lifetime performance” of advanced mobility systems.
