Workshop Announcement: Consensus Safety Measurement Methodologies for ADS-Equipped Vehicles

Workshop Announcement: Consensus Safety Measurement Methodologies for ADS-Equipped Vehicles

(June 25-26, 2019 NIST Gaithersburg Campus)

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and its partners, the U.S. Department of Transportation, Intel, Intel Mobileye, Lyft, Ricardo, SAE International, and the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute, invite you to participate in a workshop on Consensus Measurement Methodologies for Automated Driving System-Equipped Vehicles, to be held at the NIST Gaithersburg Campus, on June 25-26, 2019. The workshop is designed to engage the Automated Driving Systems (ADS) community to evaluate current perspectives on ADS safety through presentations and breakout sessions.

Information about the workshop, including agenda and registration site, is available at: https://go.usa.gov/xmGab

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 (OEMs) targeting the early 2020s. Community consensus around reliable, broadly-acceptable performance measurement methods for assessing ADS safety will help achieve this end.

This workshop’s objectives are to review existing and proposed methodologies for establishing safety requirements and safety measurement approaches, to identify gaps and key challenges, and to explore follow-on opportunities to drive towards community-wide consensus.

Registration is free and open to all but limited to site capacity on a first-come, first-served basis. All visitors to the NIST campus must be pre-registered.  There is no onsite registration for meetings held at NIST. Join us June 25th and 26th to share your ideas on measurement concepts for safety in ADS applications.
