EDR & DSSAD - Current understanding (EDR-DSSAD-03-05)
[" 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", " In 2018, EDR became a priority in the WP.29 programme of work in relation to automated vehicle work and proposals for a Data Storage System for Automated Driving (DSSAD).\r\n\r\nIn 2015, the UK Department for Transport published a <a href=\"https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/driverless-cars-in-the-uk-a-regulatory-review\" target=\"_bank\">Regulatory Review around Driverless Cars</a>. This looked at whether such vehicles could be tested in the UK and which areas of legislation would need to be changed prior to everyday use of driverless cars. \r\n\r\nThe Review found that event data recorders would be an essential element for the widespread use of driverless cars, given the need for a definitive record of the actions the driver and/or vehicle may or may not have taken prior to a collision.\r\n\r\nTherefore, the UK raised this topic during the May 2015 GRSG session and asked that EDR be added to the agenda for the October 2015 GRSG session.
