Active Safety Systems Terms and Definitions
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 (DDT) on a sustained basis (SAE Level 0 as defined in SAE J3016), as well as definitions of select features that perform part of the DDT on a sustained basis (SAE Level 1 and 2).
As the number of active safety system equipped motor vehicles has increased, the number of terms, abbreviations, and acronyms that describe these systems has increased. For the sake of industry standardization of engineering terms and definitions, the SAE Active Safety Systems Standards Committee prepared this document. Updates in this revision include additional features and their definition and revised wording for several features that were previously defined. These definitions were revised to include a basic definition along with additional detail and detail on the features.
