2020/2025 : THE UNECE WP 29 vision
On 24 June, three major texts were adopted by the countries making up the United Nations Global Forum on Transport, including the official adoption of the first regulation dealing with the automated lane keeping assistance system (ALKS). Because of its expertise, its evaluation capabilities and its capabilities in automotive testing, UTAC CERAM has been at the forefront in the definition of a validation framework adapted to these new functionalities and requirements. The purpose of this text is to approve devices which allows the driver to delegate his driving to the vehicle. The system thus takes over while monitoring the driver’s availability so that it can maintain control whilst the situation demands it. Assessments based on risk management audits and confirmations via testing will therefore be carried out as part of the approval.
Also noteworthy is the formal adoption of the first regulations dealing with cybersecurity and software updates. These regulations are the true foundations of the construction of the “safe” vehicle. They aim at the same time to guarantee a “secured by design” of the development processes in place by the manufacturers and are also used to evaluate the architectures that are deployed within the vehicles. In addition, through its website raceonline.utac.com, UTAC CERAM offers access to European and United Nations regulations consolidated and updated in real time and before official publication.
