Latest Changes to WP.29 Regulations
The following table provides a listing of regulatory texts published during the past six months. These texts are the consolidated versions of the changes published by the United Nations based upon the proposals formally adopted by WP.29. Because the original adopted proposals often include last-minute amendments or corrections, the UN prepares these consolidated versions of the final approved texts as a convenience. The original documents as considered during the adoption votes in WP.29 legally remain the official texts.

Proposal to allow for the use of the maximum operable steering wheel angle of a steering system’s design in cases where the normalized angle as calculated under the regulation cannot meet the fixed values of the regulation (i.e., between 270 and 300 degrees). The intention is to enable approval of eventual systems (e.g., steer-by-wire) that may use low steering gear ratios.

UN R79 | Revision 3 | Amendment 3 (2021)
2 Feb 2021 2021-02-25 15:12:12 UTC 3 3 02 series of amendments | Supplement 2 Based upon the adopted proposal: WP.29/2020/66

Proposal to resolve measurement concerns in the test requirements for ACSF of Category B1 and C by introducing provisions for tolerances, including:

  1. inclusion of the position at which the lateral acceleration was measured and the position of the centre of gravity of the vehicle for better traceablility,
  2. sampling rate of at least 100 Hz for dynamic testing,
  3. specification of filters and cut-off frequency for determination of lateral acceleration,
  4. option to measure “overriding force” torque via an internal sensor or an external device (e.g., steering robot).

The proposal also would modify the high-speed test to end once the system has given an optical “hands-off” warning since the entire warning cascade is checked during the low-speed test. For M2 and M3 vehicles, the amendment allows a corrective steering function to use haptic signals as an alternative to acoustic signals for these categories of vehicles that are equipped with Lane Departure Warning System compliant with UN R130. This change would specify that the haptic warning may not be given solely via the steering wheel (e.g., provided in the driver’s seat).

UN R79 | Revision 4 | Amendment 3 (2021)
2 Feb 2021 2021-02-25 15:10:27 UTC 4 3 03 series of amendments | Supplement 3 Based upon the adopted proposal: WP.29/2020/67

Proposal to stipulate that “Automatic deactivation by the system of the direction indicator is required only if the lane change manoeuvre is initiated automatically, and if the direction indicator control is not fully engaged (latched position) during the lane change manoeuvre.” The proposal also would modify the high-speed test to end once the system has given an optical “hands-off” warning since the entire warning cascade is checked during the low-speed test. For M2 and M3 vehicles, the amendment allows a corrective steering function to use haptic signals as an alternative to acoustic signals for these categories of vehicles that are equipped with Lane Departure Warning System compliant with UN R130. This change would specify that the haptic warning may not be given solely via the steering wheel (e.g., provided in the driver’s seat).

UN R78 | Revision 2 | Amendment 2 (2021)
2 Feb 2021 2021-02-25 15:08:31 UTC 2 2 05 series of amendments Based upon the adopted proposal: WP.29/2020/65

Proposal to harmonise the requirements of UN R78 with the latest amendments to UN GTR No. 3 adopted by GRVA at its fourth session. Paragraph 5.1.18 aims to clarify with an explicit article that the rider is duly informed when activating a riding mode that disables the ABS on the rear axle.

Proposal to correct erroneous references (to annexes in the regulation as well as to UN R94 and R95) in the text and to correct an inconsistency in the text (paragraph 26.7.2. refers to situations where the AECS is not equipped with a back-up power supply; however, the subparagraph 26.7.2.3. refers to an AECS with a back-up power supply).

  • a “two-step Human Machine Interface” in the requirements for Automatically Commanded Steering Functions (ACSF) of Category C lane-change functions, and
  • to resolve measurement concerns in the test requirements for ACSF of Category B1 and C by introducing provisions for tolerances, including:
    • inclusion of the position at which the lateral acceleration was measured and the position of the centre of gravity of the vehicle for better traceablility,
    • sampling rate of at least 100 Hz for dynamic testing,
    • specification of filters and cut-off frequency for determination of lateral acceleration,
    • option to measure “overriding force” torque via an internal sensor or an external device (e.g., steering robot).
