This SAE Technical Information Report provides a compendium of terms, definitions, abbreviations, and acronyms to enable common terminology for use in engineering reports, diagnostic tools and publications related to active safety systems. This information report is a survey of active safety systems and related terms. The definitions offered are descriptions of functionality rather than technical specifications. Included are warning and momentary intervention systems, which do not automate any part of the dynamic driving task on a sustained basis like those defined in SAE J3016 Automated Driving Systems.
Rationale: To refine the existing one-two sentence definitions for clarity and confirm technical correctness based on input from task force members. The updated J3063 document will also include an emphasis on the overarching “assistance” message for all of these features. This is to align with several consumer groups seeking to improve the customer education of ADAS features.
