Research Strategy

To find the most critical stakeholders in level 4 and 5 autonomous vehicles industry within magazines and publications, we leveraged a compilation of leading publications and industry databases. We began our research by looking for a precompiled list of essential stakeholders in level 4 and 5 autonomous vehicle industry. We were, however, unsuccessful as the data we sought after was not all available in one place. We altered our strategy and instead sought after a more direct approach, searching for the magazines that contained autonomous transportation or vehicles and sifting through the feedback. With this strategy, we were able to extract three publications that focused solely on the Autonomous Vehicle industry as well as one which despite having many articles related to autonomous vehicles, also ventures into other aspects of engineering and technology as well. We were, therefore, able to compile the list of magazines and publications that we have provided.

Stakeholders - Government Departments: Autonomous Vehicle Industry

The most important stakeholders within government departments in the autonomous vehicle industry include the U.S. Department of Transportation, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, varios departments of motor vehicles, and municipal authorities.

United States Department of Transportation (USDOT)

  • The Department of Transportation is the primary U.S. federal authority with jurisdiction over vehicle safety.
  • The USDOT sets standards for autonomous vehicle performance and design features via the department of National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and can recall vehicles if a safety defect is detected.
  • The department acts as a convener and facilitator through partnering with other various stakeholders to support the safe development, testing, and deployment of automated vehicle technology.
  • Although most of the guidelines issued are voluntary, responsibility for ensuring autonomous vehicle safety is passed on to manufacturers through self-certifications, which has an implication on production cost, and acceptability of the product to consumer.
  • This stakeholder is important because most people presume that if a vehicle is offered for sale in the market that it meets government regulations and is safe to drive.

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)

  • The Environmental Protection Agency regulates greenhouse gas emissions of heavy-duty vehicles and sets corporate average fuel economy (CAFE) standards.
  • Heavy-duty tractor-trailers account for a high share of negative environmental impacts that include air pollution, greenhouse gas emissions, and fuel consumption, and investment in autonomous technology in heavy-duty trucking presents opportunities to reduce these negative impacts, which might significantly increase investment in the Autonomous Vehicle Industry.
  • This stakeholder is important as regulations may have an impact on autonomous vehicle technology applications such as platooning.

Department of Motor Vehicles

  • These are state level government agencies that administer vehicle licensing and registration, insurance requirements, vehicle inspections, and traffic laws to ensure safety as seen here.
  • This stakeholder is important as there is considerable variability in how different states exercise these powers with respect to autonomous vehicles, which affects manufacturers' ability to test and market vehicles in certain states.
  • As of 2019, 37 states along with the District of Columbia had enacted legislation regarding level 4 and 5 autonomous vehicles, and out of these, only 12 states allow testing or deployment without a human operator in the vehicle.
  • Since each state is also responsible for designing its own legal insurance and liability frameworks, exposure to different risks, for example, product liability may make operating in some states more preferable than others by autonomous vehicle manufacturers.

Municipal authorities.

  • These have authority over local roads, traffic control and speed limits. As such, if autonomous vehicles are to be driven on local roads, there is need to streamline local infrastructure like street signs and safe pedestrian zones, all of which will take significant investment.
  • This stakeholder is important as local governments play a critical role in the safe and effective deployment of autonomous vehicles, a lack of which may result in unintended liabilities.

  • AVENUE target locations are urban areas of low or medium demand, low or medium accessibility.
  • It is their intention to use various sizes of electric mini-buses to transport all people; in particular the elderly, people with disabilities/Persons with Reduced Mobility (PRM) and vulnerable users.
  • The ultimate goal of the AVENUE project is to "demonstrate the suitability and efficiency of the use of small and medium autonomous vehicles (AV) for different transport models that are under development in Europe."
  • The mission of the project is to indicate that autonomous vehicles will be an important detail of the solution for public transport in the future.
  • The project aims to assess the road behavior and safety of the autonomous vehicles in public transport and also display "the economic, environmental and social advantages of autonomous vehicles for both the exploiting companies and the users."

Importance

  • Unlike other stakeholders and consortium involved in personal AVs development, AVENUE pays particular attention to public transportation and aims to solve challenges faced by all passengers. The elderly and physically challenged as well as other challenges facing the public transport sector in European cities are its main focus.

Research Strategy:

In order to find the relevant data, we leveraged a compilation of leading publications and industry databases.
We began our research by searching for an available list of stakeholders in level 4-5 AVs within industry groups or consortium. There was however no single source that listed the information we sought after. We altered our search strategy and looked at consortia in the US that focused on autonomous vehicles. From various leading publications, we were able to derive AVSC and AVCC. The rest of the relevant information was then easily available from these consortia official websites. With the same strategy, we shifted our focus to Europe and we were able to find AVENUE and ARCADE.

Stakeholders - SAE or other committees: Autonomous Vehicle Industry

The SAE International Journal of Connected & Automated Vehicles, Autonomous Vehicle Engineering (AVE), the On-Road Automated Driving Committee (ORAD), and the European Council of Automated R&D (EUCAR) are some important stakeholders in the level 4/5 autonomous vehicle industry within SAE or other related committees.

1. SAE International Journal of Connected & Automated Vehicles

  • The SAE International Journal of Connected & Automated Vehicles serves as a peer-reviewed publication platform designed for industry specialists to showcase their current operations, helping to provide the public with a sound and secure driverless experience.
  • It improves upon engineering research through the promotion of investigations (both applied and theoretical) concerning CAVs, or connected autonomous vehicles, within aerial, on-road, and off-road operational environments.

Importance

  • In both real-traffic environments and controlled circumstances, an automated driving experience that is leaves individuals unharmed is anticipated. According to the journal, with level four and level five automated driving, "the complete physical absence of a human driver from the CAV crucially demands that the safety questions of the driverless platforms’ software design and architecture performance be studied extensively."
  • All the CAV functional systems have to adhere to certain criteria measurements in order to provide a safe AD experience. The SAE International Journal of Connected & Automated Vehicles attempts to advance these objectives through the publication of peer-reviewed scientific articles exhibiting solid empirical, as well as theoretical, discoveries to "the body of engineering knowledge."

2. Autonomous Vehicle Engineering (AVE)

Importance

  • Being SAE's standalone autonomous vehicle magazine publication supplied to more than 25,000 different OEMs and suppliers, it is one of the best publications providing the public with information related to automated vehicles.

3. On-Road Automated Driving (ORAD) Committee

  • This entity is tasked with reporting directly to the "Driver Assistance Systems Steering Committee of the Motor Vehicle Council."
  • It is accountable for the development of SAE standards and maintaining them, as well as data reports, and recommended practices concerning features for motor vehicle driving automation systems through all phases of driving automation.
  • The committee mostly concentrates on Automated Driving Systems (ADSs), particularly levels three, four, and five. These levels have the capacity to perform the entire DDT "on a sustained basis while engaged."

Importance

  • Since the committee is responsible for creating SAE standards concentrates on Automated Driving Systems, it is vital to the development of level four or five autonomous vehicles.

4. European Council for Automated R&D (EUCAR)

Importance

  • The council is devoted to producing transport solutions that are more effective, secure, cleaner, and intelligent. Conducting investigations on technologies for CAVs will assist them in their goal.

Research Strategy:

For this request, we leveraged leading publications and industry databases. Our research began by searching for precompiled lists of stakeholders in the autonomous vehicle industry within SAE or other committees. However, we were unable to find any source outlining the stakeholders.

Therefore, we altered our strategy and leveraged data on the SAE International website by narrowing our search to solely focus on autonomous vehicles. From this x-ray search, we came across the three major stakeholders related to SAE.

We then shifted our focus to Europe. After searching for autonomous vehicle regulatory bodies or committees, we were able to identify EUCAR, which is tasked with the role of regulating automobile research and development, including autonomous vehicle production and testing in Europe.
