Heavy-Duty Hybrid Vehicle Emissions Heavy-Duty Hybrid Vehicle Emissions WP.29 Regulation Development This project, as currently envisioned, would result in an amendment to Global Technical Regulation 4: Worldwide Harmonized Heavy-Duty Emissions Certification Procedure (WHDC). This effort aims to establish an amendment to Global Technical Regulation (gtr) No. 4 (WHDC) with respect to pollutant and CO2 emissions from heavy duty hybrids. The initial focus is on a Hardware-in-the-Loop (HILS) approach, which starts from the vehicle speed pattern of the WHVC vehicle cycle and simulates powertrain and vehicle components to result in a hybrid specific engine cycle for pollutant emissions and CO2 testing and measurement, and which allows using the test cell environment, data evaluation procedures and emissions calculations specified in gtr No. 4. This effort may lead to a second phase to establish a chassis dyno test procedure, as an alternative to HILS, which would involve specifying new requirements with respect to test cell environment, data evaluation procedures and emissions calculations. The informal group developing this regulatory language expects to finalize its work in March 2013 for GRPE review the following June (setting the stage for possible WP.29 adoption in November 2013 or March 2014).

Automated Driving Systems Automated Driving Systems WP.29 Discussion Topics To one degree or another, automated driving technologies take over functions previously assured entirely by the driver. At one level, driver assistance systems aid the driver in controlling the vehicle. However, technologies have advanced to the point where automated systems propose to replace the driver in controlling various aspects of vehicle behavior. For example, lane-keeping assistance systems propose to intervene in the steering of the vehicle in order to maintain the vehicle within a lane of travel. At the furthest point in the spectrum, autonomous vehicles propose to assume full responsibility for vehicle behavior without any driver intervention. As a result, such technologies undermine the fundamental assumption that the driver is responsible for the vehicle and thus present the regulatory community with a host of unprecedented opportunities and challenges in ensuring road safety. WP.29 has undertaken to address these issues on a global basis in order to seek uniform worldwide responses that will promote the use of these technologies while ensuring their safe introduction into road traffic.

However, this directive and the related UNECE Regulations only concern adults.</p> <p>Adult safety belts are not appropriate to restrain minors with a lower height than 135 cm and a lower weight than 36 Kg. Therefore, the use of safety belts for minors is not required under current regulations.</p> <p>Moreover, UNECE R44 on child restraint systems focuses on M1 vehicles and therefore fails to address child safety on buses.</p> Bus and Coach CRS Child Restraint Systems for Buses and Coaches WP.29 Discussion Topic Child Restraint Systems for Buses and Coaches Topic
