Automated Vehicles Standards Committee


The VTS/AV Standards Committee supports the development of technical standards that address safety, efficiency and energy consumption of transportation systems. 

The technology of automated vehicles is still in its infancy. There is a lack of standardized best practices on how to develop, test and validate AVs, how to ensure interoperability and how to guarantee safety and reliability. 

Some of the targeted standardization areas include (but are not limited to):

  • Automated vehicular systems and technologies
  • Interoperability
  • Sensing, detection, controls and decision-making
    1. artificial intelligence
    2. machine learning
    3. reliability of sensing and decision-making
    4. test and verification, including experimental and virtual techniques
  • Human-vehicular interaction
    1. Human characteristics and behavior
  • Information exchange
    1. data formats for information exchange
    2. protection of privacy and data
  • Vehicle power systems
