Thereby the same maximum impact speed is required for the Car to Pedestrian as for the Car to Car scenario. However, in the original proposal (GRVA/2019/16), the permitted maximum impact speed for an N<sub>1</sub> vehicle erroneously corresponds to that of an M<sub>1</sub> vehicle. This proposal corrects the error.

(pass conditions regarding "car-to-car moving" collision warning) and 6.6.2. (pass conditions regarding the collision warning in the Car to Pedestrian scenario) were deleted given that pass conditions were already defined by the general requirements. For consistency, this proposal would delete the pass conditions under the car-to-car stationary scenario.

GRVA-04-39 | UN R152: Proposal for amendments to document GRVA/2019/17 The False Reaction scenarios in Annex 3-Appendix 2 were based on UN R131 (on-highway heavy vehicles) without verification of their applicability to urban light vehicles. Japan has begun research and anticipates proposing changes to the UN R152 scenarios in the near future. This proposal identifies scenarios under study and recommends tolerances for the vehicle and pedestrian dummy placements. Japan also raises concerns over the provision "the AEBS shall not provide a collision warning" in cases where there is no imminent collision risk.
