What is ISO 34504?

ISO 34504 provides guidance on categorizing scenarios in the testing and verification of automated driving systems (ADS). It emphasizes the use of "tags" as meta-attributes to categorize various driving scenarios, contributing to a harmonized approach to scenario classification.

Why is ISO 34504 important?

This standard is crucial for the consistent and systematic verification of ADS. It aids in the development of safer and more reliable automated driving technologies by ensuring diverse driving scenarios are thoroughly tested and categorized.


  • Enhances the reliability and safety of automated driving systems
  •  Provides a standardized approach to scenario categorization
  •  Supports the development and validation of diverse ADS scenarios


Developers and testers of automated driving systems.

It works alongside standards like ISO 34502, providing a structured approach to scenario-based testing.

It focuses on using tags to categorize driving scenarios, considering various dynamic entities, environmental conditions, and additional scenario information.
