TR 68-2:2021

Autonomous vehicles – Part 2 : Safety


The TR specifies the safety provisions for AVs deployed on public roads. It covers the use case of deployment in Singapore.

This TR can be subdivided into two major fields:

a) Design and production quality; and
b) Safe operation in the context of specific applications in Singapore.

This TR stipulates system-level safety in order to ensure that:

a) functional and operational safety requirements of AVs are met;
b) system safety is applicable to the operation design domain in which the AV operates;
c) AV developer, system integrator and system operator are competent organisations with an appropriate quality management system in place supported by competent personnel; and
d) appropriate safety goals are in place to guide safety assurance at the system level.

This TR does not differentiate between vehicles being built from scratch and conventional homologated vehicles, which have been equipped with additional ADS technology (see SAE J3016) to increase the supported level of driving automation within SAEJ3016's levels.
