Stepping Forward for Safer Automated Vehicle Deployments

With over twenty-five thousand downloads of its best practices from thirty countries around the world, AVSC is shaping the safety landscape for Automated Driving on many different fronts, including voluntary technical standards, professional organizations, regulation, research, and test. Our best practice documents serve as a solid starting point for these groups, as pertinent topics are thoroughly discussed, and consensus is achieved on what AVSC members will prioritize in terms of safety during development, test, and deployment of their automated driving systems. 

Bringing together differing viewpoints and perspectives with a focus on safety, we aim to develop a unified industry voice, uniting on baseline terminology and safety principles.
