The first international safety standard for Level 4 automated driving systems has been published by an international group of experts led by WMG (Warwick Manufacturing Group), part of the University of Warwick, and working as part of an ISO technical committee.
The new standard ISO 22737 ‘Intelligent transport systems – low-speed automated driving (LSAD) systems for predefined routes – performance requirements, system requirements and performance test procedures’ includes the following key points:
- Providing minimum operating capabilities for LSAD systems including guidance on operational design domain (ODD) definition
- Guidance on how LSAD systems may fit into the wider transport ecosystem
- Performance requirements for different aspects of the LSAD system, such as dynamic driving tasks, emergency maneuvers (e.g. emergency stop and minimal-risk maneuvers), hazardous situation identification, static and dynamic obstacle detection and avoidance
- Test procedures for various system functionalities
