Locomation and Edge Case Research Team Up to Deliver Safer Autonomous Trucking
Edge Case is proud to work with Locomation to help build a robust ANSI/UL 4600-conformant safety case for their Autonomous Relay Convoy (ARC) system. The ARC system is intended to alleviate some of the key challenges in the trucking industry. Helping Locomation to deliver on the commitments made to their partners and customers to deliver a safe, reliable, and scalable system is exactly what we mean by our mission statement: to deliver the promise of autonomy.
Edge Case Research collaborated with industry and government to pioneer the development of ANSI/UL 4600, the leading standard to address safety principles and a process for assessing autonomous vehicle safety using the safety case approach. Locomation partnered with Edge Case to develop our safety case based on Edge Case’s experience developing leading autonomous vehicle safety cases. We share the common mission of delivering safe autonomous technology to help solve some of society’s biggest problems.
Locomation used Edge Case’s nLoop safety case framework, multiple industry standards, and best practices to shape the ARC safety case. The joint team then mapped the safety case to the ARC operational concept and developed a roadmap to ensure safety was the driving focus for the design, development, testing, and operation of the ARC system. Following a safety case based approach will speed the development and adoption of ARC technology, which in turn will help relieve some of the demand and capacity burden facing the trucking industry.
