TÜV Rheinland and SwRI to develop automated driving standards

The Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) and TÜV Rheinland’s Mobility have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to develop functional standards for the performance of autonomous driving on public roadways in the USA. Following the lead of Florida, California and Nevada, which have all developed regulations enabling autonomous driving, the two organizations will collaborate to establish standards and performance metrics that will enable the three leading states, and others that may follow, to evaluate and regulate the effectiveness of automated driving. SwRI and TÜV Rheinland will build on their experiences in the automotive standards development and certification industry to develop standards that the automated driving industry can apply to measure its success. Nevada has required that the industry build such standards in the near future, and other states are expected to follow.

With a long history in the automotive industry, including certification for the transportation industry, including homologation, quality testing, and connected vehicle assessment and testing, the combined SwRI and TÜV Rheinland team will look to work with the US Government and industry, in order to define the criteria that will meet the states’ requirements for testing and acceptable performance metrics for automated driving. “Our team realizes that the action of states to begin regulating automated driving portends a national trend of the state and international actions to regulate this emerging industry,” said Suzanne Murtha of TUV Rheinland Mobility Inc. “We look forward to helping the industry stay ahead of this trend and, possibly, even include some of the forthcoming standards into the regulatory language.”
