b) Interpretation of road signs, markings and traffic signals; and
c) Management of non-transferable rules.

Covers the key directives, providing safety and maintaining traffic movement, for automated driving and provides a hierarchy of directives and rules to overcome potential conflicts between rules. Introduces a framework for the application of rules as part of a driving policy.

Does not cover the following:

a) The interface between an AV and any occupants including the human safety driver;
b) Rules relating to non-driving tasks and longer term tactical cognitive functions such as route planning; and
c) Communication or signalling between the AV and external stakeholders including but not limited to pedestrians and other drivers, which extends beyond use of standard vehicle equipment, including lighting and horn, as described in existing driving rules.
