JRC replies to the questions received from the 24th EVS informal group session on the presentation “Gas emissions from thermal runaway and propagation of Li-ion battery cells in short stack and module experiments”.
Proposal to correct some references, which need to be updated as a consequence of document WP.29/2020/70, adopted at the June 2020 WP.29 session, notably
Proposal to amend the extended mobility tyre (EMT) symbol following the detection of dimensional inconsistencies within the International Organization for Standardization Working Group (ISO) TC31/SC3/WG19, where the dimension “0,33h” was judged wrong and constituting an unnecessary over constraint and to amend the inflation value to be used for the tyre conditioning when assessing the “flat tyre running mode” of “run flat tyres” and of “extended mobility tyres”.
Proposal to clarify the scope and application of the regulation.
Proposal to improve the Appendix 2 Annex 3 for assessing robustness against false reaction, to introduce new provisions for automatic deactivation of AEBS, and to improve the text in other instances.
Proposal to introduce provisions under a car-to-bicycle test scenario.
Proposal for alternative language regarding markings to avoid use of the term “moulded” which could be interpreted as a technical design restriction and to add a reference to “log-skidder” tyres.
GRVA may wish to receive a status report on the activities of the IWG on International Whole Vehicle Type Approval (IWVTA) and subgroup activities, if any.
