Advisory Board made up of key industry stakeholders, technical experts, trade associations, academia and with government participation, both central and with representation from local authorities. “BSI’s CAV Advisory Board will help make

sure we are identifying the right issues and priorities for standardization,” said Nick. “We don’t want to produce conflicting or competing standards but we’re looking to address known gaps in standards landscape. “For example, ISO is currently developing an international standard on cyber security engineering jointly with the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), and the UK is feeding into that process,” said Nick. A number of workshops have been set up

to examine the key themes – testing and approval, cyber security, data and safety – and set priorities for the standards work. Independently of the workshops, two fast-

track PAS documents will also be developed, one focusing on safety of autonomous vehicle trials and a second providing safety guidance for companies involved in developing CAVs and the supporting technologies. Building on the work with ISO and to help

strengthen the UK’s approach to automotive security, BSI has recently published two new PAS documents. PAS 1885:2018 the Fundamental Principles of Automotive Cyber Security is sponsored by the Department for Transport. PAS, 11281:2018 Connected Automotive Systems – the Impact of Security on Safety, will provide recommendations for management of the security risks that could compromise the safety of an intelligent, connected vehicle network.

“Data is critical for connectivity and standards for data will be central to how connected and autonomous vehicles perform safely and securely”

Data holds the key

The term ’connected and autonomous vehicles’ is a wide one and ranges from connected car and ADAS technology in production road vehicles to the autonomous driving technologies and systems seen in some premium end of the market cars and the self-driving pods and shuttles as currently seen at Heathrow Airport Terminal 5. To date industry has used the five levels

of autonomy defined in a scale developed by the Society of Automotive Engineers to address the increasing levels of human- driver interaction. “Data is critical for connectivity and

standards for data will be central to how connected and autonomous vehicles perform safely and securely,” said Nick Fleming. “Data from an individual vehicle could be shared in real time with a traffic

management system to monitor the road environment and,for example, could relay information of a hazard ahead in the road to other vehicles behind.” As well as interacting with other vehicles, to operate safely in congested urban areas, CAVs will also need to interact with local infrastructure data relaying information such as the type of road surface and height of kerbs.
