HEADSTART project together with SAKURA and SIP-adus created a white paper in order to summarize and harmonize the activities performed in the context of automated driving safety assessment methods through different initiatives that are currently led by the Japanese government and European Commission research programs.

This white paper aims to:
1) Compile and present the different initiatives for which each region is working on the topic and show under which general R&D programs they are operating;
2) Identify which topics and, or challenges related to safety assessment have been the object of research by each of the referenced initiatives to assess the areas where they are making specific progress;
3) Harmonize, whenever possible, the results achieved so far, and identify potential activities for further harmonization that could be encouraged and fostered within the regions and or in future R&D initiatives.
