Foretellix and Mobileye team up to demonstrate autonomous driving safety solution
Foretellix's solution includes support of Mobileye's Responsibility-Sensitive Safety (RSS) following a successful joint demonstration of ALKS safety regulation and compliance flow
The UN regulation on Automatic Lane-Keeping System (ALKS) will enter into force in January 2021, and will impact car makers in over 60 countries worldwide. Foretellix's solution includes support of Mobileye's Responsibility-Sensitive Safety (RSS) following a successful joint demonstration of ALKS safety regulation and compliance flow. During the demonstration, the system used Mobileye’s RSS model to ensure that the tested vehicle does not initiate dangerous situations and properly responds to dangerous situations initiated by other vehicles. These scenarios were varied over a wide range of parameter values, demonstrating that safety as well as regulatory requirements are met.
Foretellix has recently released its novel ADAS & Highway solution that provides a comprehensive verification package from Level 2 driver-assist technologies to Level 4 highway-focused, fully autonomous solutions. With the introduction of the new system, the solution now includes the first-ever commercial implementation of new ALKS regulation by the UNECE (United Nations Economic Commission for Europe), the world’s first Level 3 regulation.
“We are excited to show how our Coverage Driven verification approach, combined with Mobileye’s RSS, helps bring the industry closer to the goal of measurable safety,” said Gil Amid, Chief Regulatory Affairs Officer and Foretellix co-founder.
“Regulators will require proof of a vehicle’s ability to avoid reasonably foreseeable and preventable collisions,” said Jack Weast, Vice President of AV standards at Mobileye. “The Foretellix Foretify approach using RSS gives OEMs a way to demonstrate compliance with the most advanced automated driving regulation in the world.”
Israel is currently not a member of UNECE’s World Forum for Harmonization of Vehicle Regulations committee, but the Ministry of Transport plans to test the potential implementation of the regulations in the country as part of the legislative changes required for the approval of autonomous cars in Israel. Currently, the Israeli law doesn't allow drivers to remove their hands from the steering wheel while driving.
