UN launches series of workshops to set the ground for automotive AI definitions

Looking at the high potential of new technology trends, the UNECE World Forum for Harmonization of Vehicle Regulations (WP.29) declared artificial intelligence (AI) as an essential topic in the advancement of vehicle safety in autumn of 2020. Since then, the UN Working Party on Automated/Autonomous and Connected Vehicles (GRVA) has been gathering input from different countries highlighting gaps, risks, and needs for clarification on applications for vehicle management (such as HMI, infotainment management or voice assistance), and for safety functions (including active safety features, Advanced Driver Assistance Systems and Automated Driving Systems).

Following CLEPA’s recommendation, the GRVA started a series of technical workshops to agree on common definitions and use cases relevant for the automotive industry. CLEPA sees the need to raise awareness about the immense variety of applications linked to artificial intelligence, and how these can help improve road safety internationally. Having the same understanding will facilitate dialogue and avoid misinterpretation of the technology.

The first workshop on 18 March resulted in a fruitful discussion and will be followed by a second workshop already scheduled for 26 May. CLEPA’s technical experts will continue taking part in these meetings and actively contributing to advancing the development and implementation of safety functions based on artificial intelligence.
