NIST is closely monitoring guidance from Federal, State, and local health authorities on the outbreak of COVID-19. To protect the health and safety of NIST employees and the American public they continue to serve, NIST has decided to make the ADS Safety Measurement and Operational Design Domain virtual only. For more information on COVID-19, please visit: cdc.gov/covid19.
NIST will hold a workshop on Automated Driving System Safety Measurement and Operational Design Domain (ADS; SAE J3016) on July 7-8, 2020. The automotive industry is planning to deploy automated driving systems with most major manufacturers (OEMs) targeting the 2020s. Community consensus around reliable, broadly-acceptable performance metrics for assessing ADS safety can facilitate the successful achievement of these deployments. This workshop will explore, with the ADS community, methods for analyzing the Operational Design Domain of an ADS-equipped vehicle into fundamental measurements.
ADS-ODD Technical Working Group
Would you like to be involved in the ADS-ODD Technical Working Group. The ADS-ODD Technical Working Group will meet virtually biweekly starting on April 22, 2020 and will discuss alternative taxonomies or frameworks for analyzing the Operation Design Domain of an ADS and write a technical brief in preparation for the July 7-8, 2020 workshop. If so, please email edward.griffor [at] nist.gov.
Both breakout groups will consider the question: What are the desirable properties and measurement inputs of an OES or ODC?
Examples of desirable properties might include measurability, composability, comprehensiveness, and reproducibility.
Examples of measurement inputs might include testing regimes (simulation/track/public roads), outcomes-oriented measurement methods (e.g. safe completion of an unprotected left turn), OERDC quality (degree to which the physical world and ADS virtual representation align), etc.
