A group of 11 companies including Audi
have released a paper
to help developers create safer automated driving solutions.
Safety First for Automated Driving (SaFAD) says 12 principles - such as vehicle operator-initiated handover and operational design domain - were used to devise a possible overall structure for creating vehicles which will avoid hazards.
SaFAD is designed to offer developers and operators a system for clear traceability that proves AVs are safer than the average driver through components such as cameras or steering systems. It also offers a summary of the safety by design and verification and validation methods of Level 3 and Level 4 automated driving.
The next version of this paper is intended to be put forward as a proposal for international standardisation.
Other companies involved include Aptiv, Baidu, Continental, Daimler, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, Here, Infineon, Intel and Volkswagen.
