How To close the regulatory gap of current automotive regulations and Standards for autonomous vehicles

The homologation of automated and connected vehicles according to global regulations is essential for their safe and reliable development and deployment around the world. But existing regulatory safety frameworks applicable to conventional vehicles and their components are insufficient to fully assess the operational characteristics of current and future automated vehicle technologies. As with increasing automation vehicles transform into cyber-physical systems that no longer require a human driver, new safety challenges will have to be considered. This paper discusses those challenges and presents a six-point approach for developing of a regulatory framework that can effectively support homologation for automated vehicles.
