BSI has launched a program of standardization to support the safe deployment of connected and automated vehicles (CAV). Working in partnership with the Centre for Connected and Autonomous Vehicles, the Department for Transport, Innovate UK, and Zenzic, the aim of the program is to provide guidance and technical standards that will accelerate the safe and successful deployment of automated vehicles and promote UK capability in areas such as CAV design and testing.
The new program expects to shape emerging technical conversations around automated vehicles and promote UK thought leadership and influence through international standards development and collaboration. BSI has established a cross-stakeholder advisory board that pulls in the leading voices from the UK CAV ecosystem including test beds and companies involved in national CAV trials to identify where the industry needs standards. The program will consider standardization across areas such as safety, advanced testing, data, cyber security, CAV infrastructure, human factors, and the deployment of automated vehicle services.
