The R&D of Autonomous Transportation Systems (ATS) is hindered by the lack of industrial feedback and client's knowledge about technological possibilities. In addition, because of intellectual properties (IP) issues, technology consulting companies can?t directly reuse developed functionalities with different clients. In this context, requirements reuse technics presents a good way to capitalize on their knowledge while avoiding IP issues. However, the literature review on requirements reuse processes doesn?t propose methods to the application of reuse processes with little information about the system?s operational context. In this paper, we present a semi-automated requirement reuse and recycle process for ATS R&D. The process helps designers? copes with the lack of inputs from the clients. Requirements candidates are retrieved from a database using Natural Language Processing and traceability propagation. It is applied to 3 use cases with inputs less than 5 concepts from the client?s needs. The results validate its efficiency through number requirements retrieved and the analysis time consumption
