Research readiness work for the ISO/PWI 13228 Test Method for Automotive Lidar has got under way. Hesai’s Mr. Xin Zhao represents China and acts as group leader in the ISO Working Group ISO/TC22/SC32/AHG1. Valeo are the deputy leaders of the group, which also includes Bosch; Denso; Nissan; Renault; Sony, and ZF. They will work on the new ISO standard.
The objectives and contents of this ISO/PWI 13228 standard intend to define:
- Unified automotive lidar performance test methods, that can enable at term healthy competition in the global automotive lidar market;
- Solutions to reduce the risk of failure of the perception system when the autonomous vehicles are on the road;
- Guides for governmental organisations to conduct more standardized management of the automotive lidar market to ensure that certified products will meet international minimum standards, and
- A basic consensus on the definition of terms and technical specifications for the automotive lidar
According to a CICC research report, the global market scale of OE automotive lidar is expected to reach more than C¥100bn by 2025. As many series-production vehicles equipped with lidar are set to launch within the next five years, it is important to define—now—international standards for automotive lidar. Technology-neutral, performance-based standards will give common, guidelines for basic functional specifications and testing methods.
