Jan 27 -- The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) will be hosting a virtual workshop on the development of Standards and Performance Metrics for On-Road Autonomous Vehicles on March 8-9, 2022. During this two-day event, attendees will have an opportunity to actively provide feedback in facilitated discussions regarding technical focus areas for NIST to develop standards, measurement science, and performance metrics for on-road autonomous vehicle technology.
On-road autonomous vehicles are projected to influence key aspects of everyday life including transportation, goods delivery, manufacturing, public safety, and security. However, autonomous vehicles can pose a risk in the event of unexpected system performance. Goals of this workshop include the following:
Solicit stakeholder feedback to identify key areas where NIST can develop standards and performance metrics to help advance the autonomous vehicle field.
Foster a multidisciplinary community consisting of stakeholders from a variety of disciplines and domains in autonomous vehicles.
During the workshop, attendees will have an opportunity to actively provide feedback in facilitated discussions regarding technical focus areas for NIST to develop standards, measurement science, and performance metrics for on-road autonomous vehicle technology. Prior to the workshop, NIST will release a discussion draft that addresses the following technology areas:
NIST will use stakeholder feedback from the workshop to revise the discussion draft.
