FCAI Submission to NTC Discussion On Driving Laws

15th December, 2017

The technology for automated driving systems to deliver levels 3, 4 and 5 (conditional driving automation,
high driving automation and full automation) will continue to evolve rapidly over the next few years.

UN Regulations introduced during this time will recognise the need for a human driver.
During this time, the human driver should always be in control of a vehicle and therefore responsible for
the actions of the vehicle, with all levels of automation, while the ADS is engaged.

The FCAI considers that a sensible approach to regulatory development is to introduce changes to driving
laws that will be relevant for the immediate future (i.e. next 5 to 10 years) and schedule another review in
3 to 5 years when the rate of introduction of the level of automation is better understood.
