Taxonomy and Definitions for Terms Related to Driving Automation Systems for On-Road Motor Vehicles
- Ground Vehicle Standard
Clarifying the role of the (human) driver, if any, during driving automation system engagement.
Answering questions of scope when it comes to developing laws, policies, regulations, and standards.
Providing a useful framework for driving automation specifications and technical requirements.
Providing clarity and stability in communications on the topic of driving automation, as well as a useful short-hand that saves considerable time and effort.
Be descriptive and informative rather than normative.
Provide functional definitions.
Be consistent with current industry practice.
Be consistent with prior art to the extent practicable.
Be useful across disciplines, including engineering, law, media, public discourse.
Be clear and cogent and, as such, it should avoid or define ambiguous terms.

The On-Road Automated Driving (ORAD) committee reports to the Driver Assistance Systems Steering Committee of the Motor Vehicle Council. The ORAD committee is responsible for developing and maintaining SAE standards, recommended practices, and information reports related to motor vehicle driving automation system features across the full range of levels of driving automation. "On-road" refers to publicly accessible roadways that provide driving environments for the users of motor vehicles of all classes and all levels of driving automation. However, the ORAD committee will focus primarily on Automated Driving Systems (ADSs) as defined by SAE J3016, namely, levels 3-5 which are capable of performing the complete DDT on a sustained basis while engaged. This includes cooperative automation at these levels. While automated subsystems from other committees will be integrated with automated driving technology, the ORAD committee does not focus on specific subsystems like short-range communication, active safety such as electronic stability control and automated emergency braking or other driver assistance such as lane keeping assistance and cooperative adaptive cruise control. The ORAD committee will coordinate with and contribute to committees and task forces in these distinct areas of expertise.
