Low-speed automated driving (LSAD) systems provide an opportunity for cities to reduce congestion and carbon emissions, thus contributing to net-zero targets and many of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Designed for operation on predefined routes in low-speed environments, they are often used in commercial, business or university campuses.
Yet growth of this technology has been hampered by a lack of International Standards defining performance and safety requirements. Until now. A new standard has just been published to help accelerate its progress in a safe and sustainable way.
ISO 22737, Intelligent transport systems – Low-speed automated driving (LSAD) systems for predefined routes – Performance requirements, system requirements and performance test procedures, provides a common language to help facilitate the development and safe deployment of this technology worldwide.
