Standard for Human Intentions and Artificial Intelligence Alignment in Autonomous Driving Agent

This standard provides a framework for formulating and evaluating how well the behavior of autonomous driving agents aligns with human intentions. This framework specifies evaluation setups and related data, methods, and metrics. The standard defines a minimum set of scenarios, in which human intentions are encoded through agent behaviors. In each scenario, the standard defines a set of behaviors, where different behaviors reflect different levels of alignment between human expectations and agent behaviors. For instance, in a scenario, we might have three behaviors, A, B, and C, where A is the most expected behavior aligned with human intentions, B is not an expected behavior but acceptable, and C is not an acceptable behavior. Based on that, the minimum requirements for alignments and system interpretability are provided from an evaluation process perspective. This standard applies to autonomous agents on the road, which are implemented by Artificial Intelligence (AI) algorithms, machine learning, or other applicable methods. Complying with this standard helps to achieve that the fundamental performance of self-driving vehicles aligns with human intentions.

Other Activities From This Working Group

Current projects that have been authorized by the IEEE SA Standards Board to develop a standard.

No Active Projects

Standards approved by the IEEE SA Standards Board that are within the 10-year lifecycle.

No Active Standards

These standards have been replaced with a revised version of the standard, or by a compilation of the original active standard and all its existing amendments, corrigenda, and errata.

No Superseded Standards

These standards have been removed from active status through a ballot where the standard is made inactive as a consensus decision of a balloting group.

No Inactive-Withdrawn Standards

These standards are removed from active status through an administrative process for standards that have not undergone a revision process within 10 years.

No Inactive-Reserved Standards
