25. The expert from EC reported on the outcome of IWG on VRU-Proxi on ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2018/24 for a new UN Regulation on BSIS. He added that IWG experts had agreed on a number of further amendments to the proposal as reflected in GRSG-115-10. The experts from Germany presented GRSG-115-33 that summarizes the amendments proposed by IWG, and GRSG-115-37 that explains the psychological approach of the driver’s turning information concept. GRSG noted GRSG-115-13 on the draft ISO standard 19206:4 referred to in the new draft UN Regulation on BSIS. The expert from OICA introduced GRSG-115-24 on the need to limit, in a first step, the scope of the new UN Regulation to vehicles of categories N2 (with a permissible technical mass higher than 8 tons) and N3 only. GRSG endorsed that position and mandated IWG on VRU-Proxi to work further on a possible extension of the scope to other categories vehicles. The expert from Israel proposed to amend paragraph 5.5.3. on the conditions to activate the warning signal (GRSG-115-36). With respect to the testing procedure of BSIS, the expert from CLEPA presented GRSG-115-30 on the ambient light conditions and GRSG-115-31 on the distance between the vehicle and the bicycle.

26. As a result of the discussion on GRSG-115-10-Rev.1, GRSG adopted ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2018/24 as amended by Annex II to this report. The secretariat was requested to submit it to WP.29 and AC.1 as a new draft UN Regulation on BSIS for consideration at their March 2019 sessions.
