The new generation of road vehicles will have autonomous control systems, which interpret and adapt to road conditions and events. As recent developments (e.g. Tesla and Google Cars) indicate, the technology is ready for deployment - at least technically. However, there is some lag between autonomous control technology and industrial approaches for assuring the safety of autonomous systems, which is a prerequisite for wider adoption. This project seeks to provide key players in the UK’s automotive industry with a basis for a rigorous yet practical approach to safety assurance which takes account of the need for adaptability in operational use, to provide a continuous, real-time view of threats to safety and the credibility of the operational risk case.
