WP.29 Rulemaking Project
Data Storage Systems for Automated Driving

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.

8 Jan 2020 8 Jan 2020 | Ensuring American Leadership in Automated Vehicle Technologies: Automated Vehicles 4.0 To one degree or another, automated driving technologies take over functions previously assured entirely by the driver. At one level, driver assistance systems aid the driver in controlling the vehicle. However, technologies have advanced to the point where automated systems propose to replace the driver in controlling various aspects of vehicle behavior. For example, lane-keeping assistance systems propose to intervene in the steering of the vehicle in order to maintain the vehicle within a lane of travel. At the furthest point in the spectrum, autonomous vehicles propose to assume full responsibility for vehicle behavior without any driver intervention. As a result, such technologies undermine the fundamental assumption that the driver is responsible for the vehicle and thus present the regulatory community with a host of unprecedented opportunities and challenges in ensuring road safety. WP.29 has undertaken to address these issues on a global basis in order to seek uniform worldwide responses that will promote the use of these technologies while ensuring their safe introduction into road traffic.

In 2015, the UK Department for Transport published a Regulatory Review around Driverless Cars. 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. The 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. Therefore, 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.

Briefly, the test involves a 50 km/h impact of a vehicle equipped with a Hybrid III 50th percentile male driver and an HIII 5th percentile female front passenger. Aimed particularly at reducing injuries to the elderly, the test sets a 42 mm ThCC threshold that will be strengthened to 34 mm for the HIII 5F in 2020 (via the 01 series amendments).
