Will the UNECE regulation on Automated Lane Keeping Systems pave the way for automated driving?

Policy & Regulation

The UNECE regulation on ALKS is the first internationally binding regulation that gives drivers the option to legally delegate driving tasks to their vehicles, paving the way for Level 2+ and Level 3 autonomy

In June this year, some 60 countries, including European Union (EU) member states, Japan, and South Korea, agreed to adopt a United Nation (UN) Regulation on automated lane keeping systems (ALKS) in passenger vehicles starting in January 2021. When applied, the system will keep the vehicle in its intended lane at speeds of up to 60 kph (37 mph) by controlling its lateral and longitudinal movements for extended periods without the need for input from drivers.
