MOIS: Consensus Document for Proposed Updates to Draft Proposal (VRU-Proxi-13-12)
[" This program aims to develop test procedures and performance requirements for a new UN Regulation for close-proximity vision and obstacle detection systems in order to reduce the risk of collision with pedestrians and other vulnerable road users when a vehicle is moving in reverse.

Consolidated stakeholder input on EDR elements (SG-EDR-01-03)
[" In 2018, EDR became a priority in the WP.29 programme of work in relation to automated vehicle work and proposals for a Data Storage System for Automated Driving (DSSAD).\r\n\r\nIn 2015, the UK Department for Transport published a <a href=\"\" target=\"_bank\">Regulatory Review around Driverless Cars</a>. This looked at whether such vehicles could be tested in the UK and which areas of legislation would need to be changed prior to everyday use of driverless cars. \r\n\r\nThe Review found that event data recorders would be an essential element for the widespread use of driverless cars, given the need for a definitive record of the actions the driver and/or vehicle may or may not have taken prior to a collision.\r\n\r\nTherefore, the UK raised this topic during the May 2015 GRSG session and asked that EDR be added to the agenda for the October 2015 GRSG session.

TRL feedback on the draft ALKS UN Regulation (ACSF-25-12)
[" This program is an offshoot of the work on Automatically Commanded Steering Systems (ACSF). The original ACSF mandate envisioned amendments to UN Regulation No. 79 on steering systems to enable approval of automated functions operating at speeds above 10 kph. The ACSF group subsequently proposed to draft a new regulation to address automated lane-keeping systems qualifying as Level 3 automation under the SAE J3016 taxonomy (i.e., lane-keeping systems operating continuously under \"hands off\" driver supervision). The earlier work had envisioned such systems as Category B2 ACSF. Category B1 ACSF covered lane-keeping systems requiring the driver's hands on the steering wheel (at least periodically).
