Assuring Regulatory Compliance of Connected and Automated Vehicles during their Operational LifetimeDaniele D'Onofrio
In a joint effort between IAMTS – International Alliance for Mobility Testing & Standardization and CITA a whitepaper entitled “Assuring regulatory compliance of connected and automated vehicles during their operational lifetime” has been completed.
Both international associations invite to a discussion regarding the safety of automated vehicles in operational mode. The white paper analyses the different approaches for whole life vehicle-compliance tests, depending on the individual responsibility of the vehicle manufacturer, safety authority, and the owner or operator of the vehicle. It emphasizes that the desired improvement in road safety based on automated and connected mobility must not be jeopardized by system-inherent weaknesses or even lead to their opposite. Therefore, the white paper calls among other things for the necessity that Advanced Driver Assistance and Automated Driving Systems (ADAS/AD-systems) need to be safe for deployment and continue to be safe after the systems have been released in a vehicle.
Moreover, the document provides invaluable insights into the need for harmonized standards and into ensuring that these vehicles abide by regulatory standards throughout their operational lifetime. With the increasing deployment of vehicles with automated driving systems, it’s crucial they comply with regulations to maintain safety on the road.
The key results of the whitepaper will be presented and discussed on a free webinar via TEAMs on April 26th at 12.30 P.M. CEST
The discussion will also involve the public from an independent and unbiased point of view.
