Comments on DSSAD for the draft ALKS UN Regulation (EDR-DSSAD-4.1-04)
|[" This program is an offshoot of the work on Automatically Commanded Steering Systems (ACSF). The original ACSF mandate envisioned amendments to UN Regulation No. 79 on steering systems to enable approval of automated functions operating at speeds above 10 kph. The ACSF group subsequently proposed to draft a new regulation to address automated lane-keeping systems qualifying as Level 3 automation under the SAE J3016 taxonomy (i.e., lane-keeping systems operating continuously under \"hands off\" driver supervision). The earlier work had envisioned such systems as Category B2 ACSF. Category B1 ACSF covered lane-keeping systems requiring the driver's hands on the steering wheel (at least periodically). ALKS Automated Lane-Keeping Systems WP.29 Regulatory Project Automated Lane-Keeping Systems", " DSSAD relates to the development of requirements for data collection and storage with particular attention to liability issues. A Data Storage System for Automated Driving is envisioned as a device or a function for Level 3-5 automated driving systems that can record driver-system interactions surrounding a critical safety event.\r\n DSSAD Data Storage Systems for Automated Driving WP.29 Regulatory Project Data Storage Systems for Automated Driving"]|
