UN R160: Proposal for Supplement 2 to the 01 series of amendments
Document WP.29/2023/102
28 August 2023

Proposal to revise and clarify the acceleration data accuracy for the lateral and longitudinal acceleration data elements and introduce procedures to verify compliance of the acceleration data with the acceleration sensor accuracy specifications. The proposal is based on the following considerations:

  1. There are multiple ways in which the acceleration data accuracy tolerance can be applied. This can potentially lead to different interpretations when applied by type-approval authorities. For clarity, the accuracy tolerance is specified as “+/- 10 per cent of the full range of the accelerometer used in the ECU containing the EDR function”.
  2. The proposal enables a component test (including a time-shifting algorithm to address differences in sampling rates between an EDR and bench test) to address difficulties in verifying acceleration sensor accuracy under vehicle crash tests.
  3. The proposal adds a footnote to clarify that the manufacturer has discretion (option) over the format for lateral acceleration data in rollover event because such data is not recorded using the lateral airbag deployment sensors.
  4. The proposal adds Annex 6 on the verification procedure with an illustration of the tolerance corridor for lateral and longitudinal acceleration.

10. (a) | Guidance on Event Data Recorder Performance Elements Appropriate for Adoption in the 1958 and 1998 Agreements Resolutions or Regulations

27. The expert from the Netherlands on behalf of the IWG on Event Data Recorder (EDR) / Data Storage system for Automated Driving Vehicles (DSSAD) introduced the status report (GRSG-125-25) of the group. He informed GRSG that the IWG had completed the light duty vehicle EDR performance elements appropriate for adoption in the 1958 and 1998 Agreement Resolutions or UN Regulations, completed UN Regulation No. 160 accordingly and DSSAD requirements within UN Regulation No. 157 (Automated Lane Keeping System). He also announced ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2023/11, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2023/12 and ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2023/15 on the acceleration data accuracy verification procedures. Moreover, he explained that the IWG had developed proposals on EDR for Heavy Duty Vehicles (HDV), as a: (a) new UN Regulation (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2023/13 amended by GRSG-125-07) and (b) a guidance document on EDR for HDV appropriate for adoption in 1958 and 1998 Agreement Resolutions or Regulations (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2023/14 amended by GRSG-125-08). He explained that the proposals were based on an existing Society of Automotive Engineers standard, data, analyses, research and contains unique triggering of acceleration, safety-systems and last stop.

28. Finally, GRSG agreed to combine ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2023/12, as amended below, and ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2021/32 as amended by GRSG-122-35 and submit them as proposal for amending the Guidance on EDR Performance Elements to the November 2023 session of WP.29 for information only. Moreover, it was agreed to send ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2023/14 and GRSG-125-08 to the IWG for reconsideration.

Annex 1, Table 1, amend to read:

Longitudinal acceleration
If Recorded0–250 ms or 0 to End of Event Time plus 30 ms, whichever is shorter.500-50 to 50g/- 10%101gPlanar
Footnote 11, the reference to paragraph 6.1.5., correct as 4.1.5.

10. (b) | UN Regulation No. 160 (Event Data Recorder)

30. The expert from Netherlands on behalf of IWG on EDR/DSSAD introduced two proposals for supplements to the UN Regulation (see paragraph 27 above): ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2023/11 as amended by GRSG-125-01-Rev.1 and ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2023/15 as amended by GRSG-125-04-Rev.1, both from the expert from OICA. The expert from OICA also introduced a proposal of 02 series of amendments (GRSG-125-02-Rev.2) to the UN Regulation. GRSG adopted all the proposals and requested the secretariat to submit: (a) ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2023/11 amended by annex V to the session report, as a proposal of Supplement 2 to the original version to the UN Regulation, (b) ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2023/15 as amended by annex V, as proposal of Supplement 2 to the 01 series of amendments to the UN Regulation No. 160 and (c) GRSG-125-02-Rev.2, as reproduced in annex V, as a proposal of 02 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 160 to the November 2023 sessions of WP.29 and AC.1.
