Teaching automated vehicles to drive like humans
The Automated Vehicle Safety
Consortium (AVSC), a program of the SAE
Industry Technologies Consortia (SAE
ITC), has announced the availability of its
12th best practice, titled Developing ADS
Safety Performance Thresholds Based on
Human Driving Behavior. This best practice
outlines a process for leveraging human
driving data to establish safety
performance targets for automated driving
system-dedicated vehicles (ADS-DV)
behaviors. The targets within the specific
use-case exemplified in this best practice
are based on naturalistic driving data from
manually driven vehicles in the hope of
aiding understanding from a broad
audience of stakeholders.
Automated driving system (ADS)
Volkswagen has set a goal of SAE level 4 autonomy by 2026
for the iD.Buzz EV van, a test fleet of which is now being
rolled out in various cities.
Darcyne Foldenauer, Director of the AVSC.
The safety performance of some ADS
developers need a way to describe safe and
competent driving for ADS-DVs in a way
that is relatable to how stakeholders
interpret safe driving today. Metrics
informed by competent and safe human
behavior could improve understanding and
confidence in ADS-DVs. One way to make
ADS safety performance relatable to
stakeholders is to adopt an intuitive
comparison to behaviors displayed on the
road by human drivers.
" We are excited because this best
practice provides guidelines for developers
to use data from human driving studies to
establish measurable performance
reference values and build evidence that
supports the safety of their systems. " said
22 October 2023
behaviors can be measured and compared
to naturalistic driving studies data from
human drivers to help characterize the
socially acceptable balance between safety,
lawful driving, efficiency, and comfort. For
instance, developers can utilize humandriver
data to determine an appropriate
minimum passing distance when vulnerable
road users are present. This process
enables them to enhance the safety
performance of ADS fleets by aligning it
with human-relative benchmarks and
considerations.
" It is one way to make performance data
relatable to various stakeholders and
furthers our mission to build trust in AV
systems, " added Foldenauer.
