Proposal for an amendment to Regulation No. 79 - Remote Control Manoeuvring
Category G vehicles (defined in the Consolidated Resolution on the Construction of Vehicles (R.E.3)) have specific characteristics that enable them to achieve traction on, and to traverse over, off-road terrain that would defeat and/or damage conventional road vehicles. In some situations, it would be safer for the driver to be able to manoeuvre the vehicle from outside. This proposal seeks to permit remote manoeuvring capability provided that the vehicle is designed to operate in this environment and the off-road location is confirmed throughout the whole period that the function is in use.
