20. The expert from Germany recalled the purpose of ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2017/11 and reported on the outcome of the IWG on VRU-Proxi (GRSG-114-21). The IWG had recommended enlarging the scope of the new UN Regulation on vehicles of categories M2 and M3. The expert from OICA stated that this amendment was premature and that accident data did not yet justify a broader scope to vehicles of categories M2 and M3. GRSG noted that, for some regions, the need was based on general safety provisions.

21. The expert from the United Kingdom supported the proposal in general, but pointed out that drivers could possibly disconnect such warning systems. He underlined the need for further research on the effectiveness of such information systems, especially Human-Machine Interface (HMI).

22. The expert from Germany stated his intention to review the proposal and to submit, in due time, a revised proposal for consideration by GRSG at its October 2018 session.
