Download in .pdf format Download in .docx format

Proposal to clarify that overlays may only be used to convey “safety-related rearward vision information.” The proposal addresses confusion regarding circumstances under which the provision of information through overlays is permissible. The proposal also amends the French text. The overall proposal aims to make clear that overlays may convey safety information regarding the rearward environment of the vehicle and are not necessarily limited only to when the vehicle is moving in reverse. The proposal also aims to restrict the information to rear-vision safety. Other information, not related to the rear view, should never appear within the defined field of view.
