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

AVSC0007202107

RATIONALE & INTRODUCTION

Automated Driving Systems (ADS) present a new development opportunity for transportation and mobility. The potential benefits associated with these systems have brought people and resources from different backgrounds to develop, test, or evaluate ADS. Continuing to demonstrate a commitment to managing safety risk during ADS testing can contribute to engendering public confidence.

A Safety Management System (SMS) is one approach designed to support organizational safety in a systematic and integrated way. The SMS framework is intended to promote a positive safety culture, assess and manage safety risk, evaluate risk control effectiveness, and support organizational safety policies and objectives. This information report affords organizations another safety management approach to add to their ADS test operations.

The purpose of this information report is to draw attention to the role of organizational safety when testing and evaluating SAE Level 4 and 5 ADS during development. Employing a Safety Management System (SMS) framework has helped other industries enhance safety for certain operations, making it a promising framework to consider risk-based decision-making for the test and evaluation of ADS systems.

SCOPE

This AVSC Information Report for Adapting a Safety Management System (SMS) for Automated Driving System (ADS) SAE Level 4 and 5 Testing and Evaluation (AVSC000007202107) shares information on a Safety Management System (SMS) framework in the context of ADS testing and evaluation operations. This report was developed to provide ADS organizations information about the role of organizational safety, which may be considered in the ADS testing and evaluation process. The SMS framework represents a method used in non-automotive industries (e.g., aviation, rail, nuclear) with the goal of enhancing an organization’s operational safety performance.
