Legal and consumer requirements for ADAS in US and Europe

The deployment of ADAS in the American and European market is guided by legal and consumer requirements defined by local stakeholders. Currently, US defines consumer requirements under NHTSA US NCAP programme and a new set of protocols is available. In Europe, the General Safety Regulation defines mandatory requirements that urge for standard fitment of multiple ADAS in all new vehicles. And beyond the legal framework, Euro NCAP foresees complex safety and assisted driving systems, with a comprehensive roadmap until 2030. The presentation will provide review current and future requirements for ADAS applicable to the American and the European markets.
