ALKS: Proposal concerning driver seating position (para. 2.6.1.) (ACSF-24-09)
[" 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).
