Full commercialization and market acceptance of connected vehicles won’t take place until issues as driver vehicle interface, system status, functional safety, cybersecurity, public acceptance, driver education, liability issues, policy, funding, and infrastructure are satisfactorily addressed.
Vital to that acceptance is standards.
Here’s why: standards set expectations for safety, reliability, and quality. But they also avoid having to reinvent the wheel every time a product is manufactured. This reduces duplication of efforts, increases efficiency, saves time, and money—which in turn allows companies to focus on innovation thereby helping bring products to market quicker.
So what are those foundational standards already out there that will help speed connected transportation to becoming a commercial reality?
SAE International, known for being the largest vehicle standards developer and most respected authority on vehicle engineering, has been actively involved in the development of standards specific to advancing connected vehicles, autonomous vehicles, and intelligent transportation systems.
On the heels of publishing the mobility industry’s first standard on vehicle cybersecurity, “SAE J3061™: Cybersecurity Guidebook for Cyber-Physical Vehicle Standards,” SAE has prepared an infographic series that overviews the standards serving as the building blocks to the complex, multi-industry aspects of connected transportation.
Presented in three parts, it includes the essential technical documents in the following areas specific to engineering connected transportation vehicles and their systems:
Part 1: Terms & Definitions, Vehicle & System Performance Requirements, and Interoperability
Part 2: Safety
Part 3: Security & Privacy
