Automated driving system (ADS)

This term is part of the following categories: Technology and Vehicle system.

Version 4.0, Release date March 2022

Definition: Hardware and software that are collectively capable of performing the dynamic driving task on a sustained basis, regardless of whether it is limited to a specific operational design domain.

NOTE:This definition is adapted from SAE J3016 (2018) and is used specifically for driving automation systems that can deliver SAE level 3, 4, or 5 driving (the generic term "driving automation system" covers systems that deliver SAE level 1 to 5 driving features).

Previous versions:

Version: 3.0, Release date: October 2020

Definition: Hardware and software that are collectively capable of performing the dynamic driving task on a sustained basis, regardless of whether it is limited to a specific operational design domain.

NOTE 1: This definition is adapted from SAE J3016 (2018) and is used specifically forto driving automation systems that can deliver SAE level 3, 4, or 5 driving.

NOTE 2: An automated driving system differs from a driving automation system in that the former enables the vehicle to deliver the full function of the dynamic driving task within the defined operational design domain whereas the latter covers systems that partially or fully cover the dynamic driving task.
