Automotive News Covers Velodyne SVP Mircea Gradu’s Push to Standardize Automotive Safety Regulations
Aug 09, 2019 | By Velodyne Lidar

Adopting standardized safety regulations will help automakers reduce the cost and complexity of vehicle autonomy and driver assistance and make it easier for consumers to understand how the capabilities work.

That was a key theme of a presentation by Velodyne Lidar Senior Vice President of Quality and Validation Mircea Gradu at the 2019 CAR Management Briefing Seminars, according to an Automotive News story by Richard Truett.

The story noted:

“Having one global standard would allow suppliers and automakers to cut development cost and product complexity. For example, some countries require a driver’s hands to always be on the steering wheel in a vehicle that can steer itself, while other countries do not, he (Gradu) pointed out.”

All vehicle autonomy and driver assistance capabilities need to be assessed by the same safety gauge to benefit both the industry and consumers.
