Steps for safe road release of AV/ADAS functions

A growing number of OEM and autonomous driving functions developers release autonomous driving functions on an ad-hoc basis. This brings confusion to end users and harm to both drivers and other road users. Lack of established standards or regulation for these underdeveloped/newly developed majorly prototype SW functions brings additional risk to society. New manufacturers for such safety-critical functions perform road release with lack of transparency and oversight. This talk will discuss real challenges that manufacturers face for prototype function rollout and steps to ensure the safe road release of such functions.
