47. The expert from GTB presented driver assistance projections as a new feature of the adaptive driving beam with the aim to increase driver’s comfort and road safety (GRE-82-40). The presentation was accompanied by a live demonstration of three vehicles equipped with the new feature. To allow for the driver assistance projections, the expert proposed amendments to UN Regulations Nos. 48 and [149] (GRE-82-04, GRE-82-40).

48. GRE welcomed both GTB presentation and demonstration. Several experts were of the view that the new system could bring safety benefits provided that:

  • Road projections symbols are standardized (e.g. according to UN Regulation No. 121).
  • Road projections symbols do not distract other drivers.
