Proposal as amended following GRSG discussions to clarify the camera monitor provisions with regard to the use of image overlays. The current English text can be interpreted to allow overlays only when the vehicle is moving in reverse. In particular, this resulted in an unambiguous translation into French allowing overlays only when the vehicle is in reverse gear. The original intent was to limit overlays to rear views of the vehicle regardless of the moving vehicle direction. Therefore, this proposal clarifies the English and French texts.

24. The expert from OICA introduced GRSG-113-17 to clarify the requirements of UN Regulation No. 46 on overlays in Camera Monitor Systems with respect of the spirit of the decisions of the IWG. The proposal received a number of comments. GRSG noted concerns of possible interpretation risks of the text in the three official languages. Following the discussion, GRSG agreed on the proposed English text as reflected in GRSG-113-17-Rev.1. The expert from OICA volunteered to submit, in due time, the proposed text in the three official languages for consideration by GRSG at its next session on the basis of an official document.
