This report for the European Commission provides an overview of the activities undertaken and results, along with a draft proposition of system and test requirements to be covered by the ADDW regulation technical annex.
The following tasks were undertaken to develop draft regulatory text covering system function and test requirements for ADDW systems in a technology-neutral manner:
- Literature review
- ADDW stakeholder engagement
- Define an overall test methodology
The main outcome of the research undertaken within this phase of the project was the development of draft requirements around ADDW system testing, HMI and system function. These requirements aim to ensure that ADDW systems meet minimum standards in terms of quality (to ensure the intended safety benefit) but still allow system manufacturers to express design freedom by being technology neutral. A draft of the proposed regulatory text can be found within Appendix B: Proposed items for ADDW type approval regulation. The proposed draft text has been iterated after discussions in the European Commission’s Motor Vehicle Working Group – Sub-group on Driver’s Behaviour Assessment Systems.
