Agenda Item 2.4.
Autonomous vehicles

16. The representative of Japan, Co-Chair of IWG on ITS, referred to the discussion on this item at the previous session and recalled that several presentations on concept models including advanced automations had already been presented at several motor shows. He recalled that the Working Party on Road Traffic Safety (WP.1) had agreed, at its April 2014 session, to amend the 1968 Vienna Convention. Taking into account the significance of the developments, he proposed that the role of the IWG should be refocused to reflect the rapid technological development. He suggested that the group take forward the challenges and coordinate the work of WP.29 and its subsidiary Working Parties (GRs) on issues related to automated driving. The representative of EU expressed his support for the analysis presented by the Co-Chair of IWG. WP.29 endorsed the IWG Co-Chair’s proposal.
