Intel's Automated Vehicle Safety Standard Framework Increasingly Accepted Globally

First introduced by by Mobileye CEO Professor Amnon Shashua and CTO Professor Shai Shalev-Shwartz in 2017, Responsibility-Sensitive Safety (RSS) an automated vehicle (AV) safety net, "formalizes human notions of safe driving into a verifiable model with logically provable rules and defined responses." Instead of using AI alone and relying on "millions of miles of driving history to teach safety," RSS includes another layer or safety envelope. This added layer includes checks and balances to determine an AV's ability to drive safely.

Since safety is of great concern for automakers adopting AV technology, RSS offers to fill the safety gap. Globally, Europe and China have recently embraced RSS. Valeo, a european automotive supplier, will "collaborate on policies and technologies intended to bolster the adoption of AV safety standards in Europe, the U.S. and China."

Baidu in the past year, introduced the world’s first open-source implementation of RSS and how it is a technology-neutral solution for AV safety. China ITS included RSS in its recently approved proposal for AV safety. A workgroup will "define safety thresholds, dangerous situations and proper responses as well as development of measurements for each of these criteria in the unique driving scenarios in the China market." Other interested new mobility as a service (MaaS) collaborations include Mobileye, Volkswagen and Champion Motors in Israel and Beijing Public Transport.

Arduino is an open-source electronics platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software. It's intended for anyone making interactive projects. Arduino boards are able to read inputs - light on a sensor, a finger on a button, or a Twitter message - and turn it into an output - activating a motor, turning on an LED, publishing something online


Augmented Reality is an enhanced version of reality where live direct or indirect views of physical real-world environments are augmented with superimposed computer-generated images over a user’s view of the real-world, thus enhancing one’s current perception of reality.

Deep Learning is a new area of Machine Learning research, which has been introduced with the objective of moving Machine Learning closer to one of its original goals: Artificial Intelligence.


DevOps is a set of software development practices that combines software development (Dev) and information technology operations (Ops) to shorten the systems development life cycle while delivering features, fixes, and updates frequently in close alignment with business objectives. Different disciplines collaborate, making quality everyone's job.


Docker is a tool designed to make it easier to create, deploy, and run applications by using containers. Containers allow a developer to package up an application with all of the parts it needs, such as libraries and other dependencies, and ship it all out as one package.


Edge computing is a distributed computing paradigm which brings computation and data storage closer to the location where it is needed, to improve response times and save bandwidth.


FogHorn is an intelligent Internet of Things ( IoT) edge solution that delivers data processing and real-time inference where data is created.


Hybrid Cloud is a computing environment that combines a public cloud and a private cloud by allowing data and applications to be shared between them.


Kubernetes (k8s) is an open-source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications.


WWW2 and WWW3 (k8s) are hostnames or subdomains, typically used to identify a series of closely related websites within a domain, such as,, and; the series may be continued with additional numbers: WWW4, WWW5, WWW6 etc.
