SAE International has joined China Automotive Technology and Research Center (CATARC), TÜV SÜD, Shanghai SH Intelligent Automotive and International Transportation Innovation Center (ITIC) as charter members of a new Alliance for Mobility Testing and Standardization (IAMTS).
IAMTS is founded “to develop and grow an international portfolio of advanced mobility testbeds that meet the highest quality implementation and operational standards.”
IAMTS is said to be the culmination of two years’ effort led by Dr. Joachim Taiber, CTO of ITIC, to bring together smart/advanced mobility testbeds to share, implement and develop best practices and replicable procedures, and to provide manufacturers and mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) companies with a comprehensive portfolio of physical and virtual test environments and their audited capabilities.
Innovation of on and off-road transportation, airport ground control, infrastructure, communications and micro-mobility has increased the complexity and need for reliable, predictable and replicable testing across geographies and regulatory boundaries.
IAMTS aims to help solve some of these challenges and create a sustainable testing ecosystem for future growth,” says John Tintinalli, SAE’s Director of Innovation and IAMTS’s Secretariat. “IAMTS joins SAE-ITC’s recently-announced Automated Vehicle Safety Consortium as another critical piece of SAE’s multi-pronged approach to supporting the safe advent of highly automated driving systems, vehicle connectivity, and complex, multi-modal environments. These initiatives will complement our standards committees and joint projects with other SDOs.”
