Ricardo is collaborating with the US Department of Commerce National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Intel, Intel Mobileye, Lyft, SAE International and the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute, in a workshop to evaluate current perspectives on Automated Driving Systems (ADS).

The Consensus Safety Measurement Methodologies for ADS-Equipped Vehicles, will take place at the NIST headquarters campus, Gaithersburg, Maryland on 25-26 June.

Presentations and breakouts at the workshop will discuss current perspectives on safety for Automated Driving Systems (ADS). The automotive industry is planning to deploy ADS at SAE Level 3 (conditional automation) or higher in the very near term with most major manufacturers targeting the early 2020s.

Community consensus around reliable, broadly-acceptable performance measurement methods for assessing ADS safety will help to achieve this objective.

Nick Royal, from Ricardo Innovations, will participate in the panel session Developers' Perspectives: Manufacturers and Technology Companies together with representatives from Ford, GM, Intel Mobileye, Lyft, and Uber.

The discussion will focus on the need for collaboration in addressing the challenges of ADS safety, as demonstrated by the digital resilience partnership between Roke Manor and Ricardo.

The tie-up offers an approach to cybersecurity across transport systems and critical national infrastructure.
