Introduction

At its February 2018 session, the Inland Transport Committee (ITC) acknowledged the importance of WP.29 activities related to automated, autonomous and connected vehicles and requested WP.29 to consider establishing a dedicated subsidiary Working Party (Groupe de Rapporteurs - GR).

Following this request, WP.29, at its June 2018 session, decided to convert the Working Party on Brakes and Running Gear (GRRF) into a new Working Party on Automated/Autonomous and Connected Vehicles (GRVA).

(All documents and information related to GRRF will remain available on the UNECE website, here)

GRVA's priorities include: 

  • Safety and security of vehicle automation and connectivity:

    • (See the Framework Document on Automated Vehicles)
    • Functional requirements ("FRAV")
    • Validation Method for Automated Driving ("VMAD")
    • Cyber security (and software updates)
    • EDR / Data Storage System for Automated Driving (currently)

  • ADAS:

    • Remote control manoeuvring
    • Automatically commanded steering systems

  • Dynamics (Steering, Braking etc.):

    • Advance Emergency Braking Systems
    • Anti-lock Braking System for motocycles
    • Electronic Stability Control 

First outcome:

  • Adoption in January 2019 of a new UN Regulation on Advanced Emergency Braking Systems (Car-2-Car, Car-2-Pedestrian)
