Session 64 | Geneva | 5-7 Sep 2016
11. Quiet road transport vehicles
GRB/2016/8 | Proposal for the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 138 Proposal to prohibit the use of a pause function for the acoustic vehicle alert system.
GRB/2016/9 | Proposal for the 01 series of amendments to the new Regulation No. 138 Proposal to clarify the regulation with regard to propulsion of the vehicle (replace the term "travel"), definition of the "pause function" (including taking into account the Japanese proposal to prohibit the use of a pause function), and provisions for deactivating AVAS coding in accordance with local market requirements and under conditions outside the scope of the regulation.
GRB-64-03 | Proposal for Supplement 1 to the 00 series and a proposal for the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 138 Proposal to refine the scope by replacing the phrase "can travel" by "can be propelled". The use of "travel" in the scope can be interpreted to include vehicles using using electrical systems for purposes other than propulsion (e.g., energy recuperation) that fall outside the test conditions of UN R138. The proposal further amends:<ol class="alpha"><li>Paragraph 2.7. to make clear the “pause function” refers to systems that allow the driver to deactivate an AVAS system;</li><li>Paragraph 6.2.6.: The vehicle operator shall not deactivate AVAS while driving. However, the manufacturer shall be enabled to activate or deactivate AVAS, including automatically, by regional coding according to legal provisions of various markets.</li><li>Paragraph 11.: the transitional provisions were added according to the rules of WP.29 for new series of amendments. Paragraph 11.6. has been added to maintain approvals that also comply with the new series of amendments, as is the case for vehicles that do not have a pause function according to the newly suggested paragraph 6.2.6.</li><li>Annex 1, Addendum to the communication form No …, Technical Information: technical information regarding “Pause switch (yes/no)” will be no longer necessary.</li></ol>
GRB-64-14 | Feedback from GRB members in order to plan a QRTV meeting
GRB-64-20 | OICA questionnaire regarding acoustic vehicle alerting systems (AVAS)
GRB-64-21 | Results of the OICA/Renault survey regarding acoustic vehicle alerting systems (AVAS)
GRB-64-19 | EU regulation on acoustic vehicle alerting systems (AVAS)
WP.29/2016/26 | Proposal for a new Regulation concerning the approval of quiet road transport vehicles Proposal for the establishment of a new UN Regulation governing the approval of audible vehicle alerting systems for quiet vehicles moving at low speeds. This proposal can be considered as the first phase of the regulation. In response to concerns raised by the World Blind Union, GRB agreed to extend the mandate of the informal working group that developed this text in order to consider further measures to address the WBU concerns.
