Proposal to explicitly reference consideration of the time to collision in assessing the blind spot detection system performance.
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.
