Proposal for Supplement 7 to the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 112 (GTB)
25 Oct 2016 Working Party Informal Documents Headlamps Emitting an Asymmetrical Passing Beam Asymmetrical Beam Headlamps Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Motor Vehicle Headlamps Emitting an Asymmetrical Passing Beam or a Driving Beam or Both and Equipped with Filament Lamps and/or Light-Emitting Diode (LED) Modules Proposal to update document GRE/2016/34. At the 73rd GRE session, France proposed to delete a design restrictive requirement (GRE/2015/22 and GRE-73-26). This proposal received comments from Germany and the Netherlands. Poland suggested a different approach on this issue (GRE-73-21). The Chair invited France, Germany, Netherlands, Poland, CLEPA and IEC to prepare a revised proposal for the next session. Based upon the approach proposed in GRE/2015/22 and GRE-73-26, GTB has investigated the specification of minimum levels of flux projected in critical zones of the passing beam distribution. This approach offers a technology-neutral performance based requirement. The result of the GTB study is to propose minimum projected flux requirements in two zones: a) 15°D-1°U/30°L-30°R to ensure overall adequate illumination of the road and b) 3.5°D-1°U/30°L-30°R to ensure sufficient range.

Proposal for Supplement 27 to the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 6 and Supplement 19 to the original series of amendments to Regulation No. 50
10 Aug 2016 Working Party Formal Documents Direction Indicators Direction Indicators Uniform provisions concerning the approval of direction indicators for power-driven vehicles and their trailers Position and Indicator Lamps for Motorcycles Motorcycle Lamps Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Front Position Lamps, Rear Position Lamps, Stop Lamps, Direction Indicators and Rear-Registration Plate Illuminating Devices for Vehicles of Category L Pursuant to interpretation issues raised by Germany at the seventy-fifth session of GRE, a Task Force on Sequential Activaton was established to clarify the meaning of the "one continuous line" requirement in paragraph 5.6.<notextile>(c)</notextile> of Regulation No. 6. The task force proposes to clarify the type definition and reduce the need for dividing sequential direction indicators into different types. This proposal revises the text to be more technology-neutral, removing specifications on how light sources are activated to focus on the visual performance as sequential lighting. The amendment of sub-paragraph 5.6.<notextile>(c)</notextile> of UN R6 clarifies what kind of vertical movement is not allowed in the sequential direction indicators, proposing a new new term "vertical oscillations" instead of the current wording "repeating alternation in the vertical direction". The meaning is that not more than one change of direction upwards or downwards along the vertical axis is possible. The "continuous signal" is also defined in sub-paragraph 5.6.<notextile>(c)</notextile> of Regulation No. 6. The allowed distance between adjacent or tangential distinct parts has yet to be defined. TF-SA could not find a consensus about the distance (in mm) before the deadline for submitting official working documents to the seventy-sixth session of GRE. Thus, the value is still marked between square brackets, leaving the final decision to GRE. Before the seventy-sixth session of GRE, TF-SA experts are going to investigate what the suitable value would be. The idea of TF-SA is that the sequential direction indicator should produce a visually clear and continuous signal when viewed by an observer from a 10 m distance. The same amendments as in paragraph 5.6. of the UN R6 are also proposed to paragraph 6.8. of Regulation No. 50 for L-category vehicles. Unlike paragraph 1.3. of Regulation No. 6, paragraph 2.2. of Regulation No. 50 does not define the sequential activation as a type differentiation criterion. Therefore, amendments to paragraph 2.2. of Regulation No. 50 are not necessary. GRE/2016/0020
GRE/2016/21
Proposal for Supplement 27 to the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 6 (GTB)
10 Aug 2016 Working Party Formal Documents Direction Indicators Direction Indicators Uniform provisions concerning the approval of direction indicators for power-driven vehicles and their trailers Paragraph 6.5.3. of UN R48 prescribes the use of specific categories of front direction indicators in relation to their distance from the dipped beam headlamp or front fog lamp. However, the text allows categories 1a and 1b to be used at any distance greater than the minimum prescribed for each of them. The present text of UN R6, Annex 1, however, only allows a specific category to be used in the specific range of distance prescribed. Therefore, this proposal deletes the specific requirements in UN R6 and introduces a direct reference to the requirements in UN R48. This proposal effectively eliminates the need for a lower maximum value for the Category 1 front direction indicator than that of the other categories. Therefore, it is proposed to align the maximum luminous intensity value of Category 1 to that of Categories 1a and 1b. GRE/2016/0021

17 Aug 2016 Working Party Formal Documents Adaptive Front-lighting Systems Adaptive Front-lighting Systems Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Adaptive Front-lighting Systems (AFS) for Motor Vehicles During its 69th session, GRE adopted proposals to update the Conformity of Production (CoP) procedures for lighting and light-signalling devices, but decided to await the work of a GTB task force on the simplification of CoP provisions for AFS before addressing UN R123. This proposal amends the CoP procedures in line with those agreed for UN R112 (document GRE/2013/37) to create simplified photometric CoP tables for each class (C, V, W, E, R, RADB) with its applicable 0/20/30 per cent limits. Furthermore, the task force clarified which tests are necessary for CoP testing and which are necessary only for type approval testing. The methods and requirements for the "initial" type approval remained unchanged. An overview of the main AFS characteristics can be found in documents GRE-48-28 and GRE-48-30. GRE/2016/0028
