First ISO safety standard for level 4 automated driving systems
An international group of experts led by WMG, University of Warwick, working together as a part of an ISO technical committee, has published the first International safety standard for fully automated driving systems.
Low speed automated driving (LSAD) systems, such as the autonomous pods that operate on predefined routes in low-speed environments (e.g. business or university campuses), are classed as a level 4 automated driving systems.
The ISO 22737 standard* sets out the specific minimum safety and performance requirements for LSAD systems, providing a common language to help facilitate the development and safe deployment of this technology worldwide.
