THE STANDARDIZATION ACTIVITIES IN ISO/TC204/WG14 VEHICLE/ROADWAY WARNING AND CONTROL SYSTEMS

WG14 is one of 14 active working groups within Technical Committee 204 (Transportation Information and Control Systems) of the International Standards Organization (ISO). WG14 is charged with establishing standards for systems that avoid accidents, increase roadway efficiency, contribute to driver convenience, and reduce driver workload. This paper explains why and how WG14 conducts standards work. The need to maximize consumer safety and trust, the need to minimize obstacles to international trade and competition, and the need to minimize interference among systems when functions are improved, changed, or upgraded forms the foundation for conducting work in WG14. The work process that WG14 employs involves classifying potential standardization topics to determine the appropriate time to initiate standards work, and establishing cooperative arrangements with other organizations to minimize the possibility of conflicts and to achieve the standardization goals. This paper provides summaries of the working groups seven work items, which cover adaptive cruise control systems, four types of vehicle-based obstacle warning systems, two infrastructure-based warning systems, and five liaisons. At the end of the paper, the authors make a few important observations and recommendations for furthering standards work.
