Introduction of OICA proposal on AEBS-LDWS regulations
Download in .pdf format

Explanation of OICA’s requests to exempt certain vehicles from mandatory AEBS and/or LDWS requirements due to their uses and the technical limitations of these systems. For example, the sensors used by the systems cannot operate reliably on certain special purpose equipment (such as snow plows) where the equipment and the nature of the operating environment are prohibitive.

5. The expert from OICA introduced GRRF-78-30, GRRF-78-32, GRRF-78-33, GRRF-78-34, GRRF-78-35, GRRF-78-36 and GRRF-78-37. The documents presented two sets of proposals amending the introduction and scope of UN Regulations Nos. 130 and 131 exploring possibilities of exemption for specific vehicle applications (e.g. off-road vehicles).

6. Several Contracting Parties (CPs) expressed extensive concerns on these proposals. The expert from OICA expressed his intention to develop other options for consideration at the seventy-ninth GRRF session.

6. The expert from OICA, recalling its presentation at the seventy-eighth session of GRRF and the proposed alternatives proposed e.g. in GRRF-78-30 to explore possibilities of exemption for specific vehicle applications (e.g. off-road vehicles), sought for guidance on how to proceed. He explained that with the given texts of Regulations No. 130 and 131, vehicles not benefiting from Advanced Emergency Braking Systems (AEBS) or Lane Departure Warning Systems (LDWS) get individual single approvals, which is costly and time consuming. The expert from FEM explained that in their views mobile cranes vehicles should not be equipped with AEBS or LDWS.

7. GRRF preferred the proposed option to amend the introduction of Regulations Nos. 130 and 131, providing useful information to Contracting Parties applying these Regulations.
