An Open, Transparent, Industry-Driven Approach to AV Safety
At Intel and Mobileye, saving lives drives us. But in the world of automated driving, we believe safety is not merely an impact of AD, but the bedrock on which we all build this industry. And so we proposed Responsibility-Sensitive Safety (RSS), a formal model to define safe driving and what rules an automated vehicle, independent of brand or policy, should abide to always keep its passengers safe. We intend this open, non-proprietary model to drive cross-industry discussion; let’s come together as an industry and use RSS as a starting point to clarify safety today, to enable the autonomous tomorrow.
