NAVIGATING TOWARD SAFER DEPLOYMENTS

The AVSC has identified a number of Principles that support the safe development of SAE Level 4 and 5 automated driving systems. The AVSC operationalizes these high-level statements in best practice documents available to the public.

 

We will continue to add new principles throughout 2022. Check back soon!

PUBLICATIONS

AVSC Best Practice for Interactions Between ADS-DVs and Vulnerable Road Users (VRUs)

AVSC00009202208

Establishes common terminology and a baseline understanding of the challenges posed, and framework to evaluate automated driving system-dedicated vehicles (ADS-DVs) interactions with VRUs. This best practice can facilitate communication among the industry and public, help calibrate expectations of all traffic participants, and improve broader acceptance of SAE level 4 and level 5 ADS-equipped vehicles.

AVSC Best Practice for Evaluation of Behavioral Competencies for Automated Driving System Dedicated Vehicles (ADS-DVs)

AVSC00008202111

Recommends an elemental list of behavioral competencies, lexicon, and framework for ADS developers to evaluate the safety performance of an ADS-DV.  Linking behavioral competencies to a key set of scenarios for a given ODD provides relevant evidence for ADS safety performance and contributes to manufacturer’s case for safety.

AVSC Information Report for Adapting a Safety Management System (SMS) for Automated Driving System (ADS) SAE Level 4 and 5 Testing and Evaluation 

AVSC0007202107

Shares information on how a Safety Management System (SMS) framework can support ADS test operations. This information report highlights how an integrated organizational safety approach may help risk-based decision-making during SAE Level 4 and 5 ADS testing and evaluation.

AVSC Best Practice for Metrics and Methods for Assessing Safety Performance of Automated Driving Systems (ADS)

AVSC0006202103

Recommends a set of metrics that may be used to assess ADS safety performance of the dynamic driving task (DDT). The metrics and methods described are principally designed to provide evidence of safety performance for deployment of fleet-operated/managed SAE level 4 and 5 ADS-dedicated vehicles (ride-hailing or product delivery).

AVSC Best Practice for First Responder Interactions with Fleet-Managed Automated Driving System-Dedicated Vehicles (ADS-DVs)

AVSC0005202012

Recommends a common approach for ADS developers to describe the interactions, protocols, and vital information, to facilitate first responder interactions with SAE level 4/5 fleet operated vehicles.

AVSC Best Practice for Passenger-Initiated Emergency Trip Interruption

AVSC00003202006

As passengers take rides in fleet-managed automated driving system-dedicated vehicles (ADS-DVs), they may feel the need to interrupt the trip due to a perceived emergency. There is currently no industry consensus on the proper balance between ADS passenger agency and the potential for introducing unexpected outcomes in dynamic traffic environments.

AVSC Best Practice for Describing an Operational Design Domain: Conceptual Framework and Lexicon

AVSC00002202004

The Operational Design Domain (ODD) describes the conditions under which an automated driving system (ADS) operated vehicle is designed to function. The ODD could include, but is not limited to, aspects of the environmental, geography, time-of-day, and the presence or absence of certain traffic or roadway characteristics.

AVSC Best Practice for safety operator selection, training, and oversight procedures for automated vehicles under test

AVSC00001201911

This Best Practice addresses the qualifications and training for on-board human oversight of testing for automated driving system (ADS)-operated vehicles. The Best Practice applies to humans within the vehicle responsible for the safe oversight of development and testing SAE Level 4 and Level 5 automated driving systems on public roads.
