Regulations on the Automated Lane Keeping Systems (ALKS) feature appear to be under discussion. There seems to be some difference from the regulation so far. In this document, evaluation by third-party organizations seems to be considered through the type certification procedure. There are statements in the Clause 7 of Annex D that Audit or Assessments are required by Auditor or Assessor with knowledge of ISO 26262, SOTIF and Cyber Security.
I heard that a standardization trend in the Cyber Security area presents a closer requirement to regulation. But looking at this document, it looks that FuSa and SOTIF are likely to follow a similar trend on topics related to ALKS.
As this policy is not yet decided, it may be considered to be quick, but we can prospect Audit/Assessment by 3rd party, which has been slightly loosened by the OEM, may be strengthened in the future.
On the regulatory side, there is some preparation, and on the side of defense, it seems to try hard to standardize through ISO standard activities and try to perform according to the standard as an approach of standard conformity.
This is an interesting change that was not found in functional safety in the past.
