Presentation of French views on the regulation of automatically commanded steering functions
Download in .pdf format

Presentation on French government views on the approval of automated steering at speeds above 10 km/h under UN Regulation No. 79. The principle recommendation is to restrict amendments to UN R79 to lateral vehicle control as speeds above 10 km/h while setting other work on more advanced capabilities (longitudinal + latitudinal, lane change, passing, etc.) for future separate regulations.

d) The representative of France presented GRRF-81-14 advocating for a regulatory structure differing from the one chosen by the IWG on Automated Commended Steering Function (ACSF), noting that this approach could be followed in a second step.
e) The Chair of the ISO Technical Committee 22 on Road Vehicles presented the relevant activities of ISO related to automated driving technologies and indicated the existing collaborations with SAE International. The representative from ITU made a presentation on secure vehicle software updates.
