Objectives:

To define a standard for autonomous vehicles.

Methodology:

N/A

Key Findings:

  • An international standard for levels of autonomous driving has been established.

  • It identifies 6 levels of driving automation from ‘no automation’ to ‘full automation’

  • Describe categorical distinctions for a step-wise progression through the levels.

  • Educates the wider community by clarifying for each of the levels, what role (if any) that the driver has to perform while the driving automation system is engaged.

Keywords:

Vehicle standard, Autonomous driving

Comments:

This standard offers no evidence as to how autonomous driving will help in regard to safety, however it does offer a good picture of where we stand today with regard to the step required for full automation.
