Assessment, Evaluation, and Approaches to Technical Translations of FMVSS and Test Procedures That May Impact Compliance of Innovative New Vehicle Designs Associated With Automated Driving Systems

The project described in this paper provides research findings in terms of options regarding technical translations of select Federal motor vehicle safety standards (FMVSS) and related Office of Vehicle Safety Compliance (OVSC) test procedures. The research findings are based on potential regulatory barriers identified for self-certification and compliance verification of innovative new vehicle designs that may appear in vehicles equipped with Automated Driving Systems (ADSs). This paper documents the framework used to evaluate the regulatory text and OVSC test procedures with the goal of identifying possible options to remove regulatory barriers for the self-certification and compliance verification of ADS-Dedicated Vehicles (ADS-DVs) that lack manually operated driving controls. It also describes the research activities for 15 crash avoidance standards (100-series) and 15 crashworthiness/occupant protection standards (200-series). This research effort incorporates feedback obtained from stakeholders and subject matter experts (SMEs)
