Nowadays, very different kinds of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) are available for all kinds of vehicles. In the last few years several VDV member companies have tested them in tramcars and light rail vehicles, especially in respect of avoidance of collision with obstacles situated directly on the track. Meanwhile, they have gained so much experience with the test operation of ADAS that it seemed meaningful to prepare this VDV Recommendation to support other VDV member companies with the introduction of such systems.
This VDV Recommendation is particularly intended to support the public transport companies operating tramways and light rail systems (street-running systems according to Section 2 of BOStrab (Section 4 (1) of PBefG)) by the preparation of the technical specifications, the homologation procedures (putting into service according to Section 62 of BOStrab) and the regulations governing the contractual acceptance of ADAS according to the German Civil Code (BGB) by the procurement of new vehicles or the retrofit of existing vehicles. However, it also includes recommendations on the introduction and operation of ADAS.
