Working Party on Automated and Connected Vehicles | Session 14 | 26-30 Sep 2022
Agenda Item 4. (a)
Deliverables of the Informal Working Group on Functional Requirements for Automated and Autonomous Vehicles

22. The expert from the United States of America, Co-Chair of the IWG on FRAV, introduced GRVA-14-35, with a status report of the activities of the group. He presented the outcome of the meeting in Detroit, Michigan in September 2022. He reported on developments regarding requirements related to the performance of the Dynamic Driving Task (DDT), traffic-rule conversions to address local requirements, guidelines for documenting the Operational Design Domain (ODD) of Automated Driving System (ADS) features, ODD-based framework to generate scenarios for assessing ADS performance, safety models for assessing ADS responses under scenarios, behavioral competencies to set verifiable performance criteria for scenarios, safety requirements for ADS user Human Machine Interface (HMI) and interactions.

23. The expert from ITU mentioned a specific challenge faced by the stakeholders dealing with the development of Automated Driving Systems, namely the lack of uniform and harmonized traffic rules around the world. He explained that the combined workshop (see para. 39) of the Informal Group of Experts on Automated Driving (IGEAD) and FRAV identified the need to provide information on traffic rules by jurisdictions, as one of the potential items for cooperation. He offered ITU to host a database on traffic rules under the direction of the Global Forum for Road Traffic Safety (WP.1) and WP.29 to determine the format. He offered ITU to participate in WP.1 to provide the UN Information and Communications Technology (ICT).

24. GRVA endorsed the progress report of the IWG on FRAV.

25. GRVA discussed the input from the IWG on FRAV regarding light-signalling for ADS under agenda item 4(e).
