The UK government’s Centre for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CCAV) commissioned Horiba MIRA, the University of York, TRL and Five to develop a set of guidelines for the deployment of low-speed automated pods.
These guidelines provide a technical reference for potential future regulations relating to the safety of low-speed automated vehicles (LSAVs) operating on UK roads.
The report recommends a future safety and security assurance framework for low-speed automated vehicles. Despite being aimed at LSAVs to begin with, it is anticipated that the group’s findings could be used to inform assurance processes for other AV use cases, including those which operate at higher speeds.
