B For Door Tests, in the directions specified in S5.

Technical Product Information

The proposed FMVSS would also require each vehicle, as manufactured and sold, to have its device set to a speed not greater than a specified speed and to be equipped with means of reading the vehicle’s current speed setting and the two previous speed settings including the time and date the settings were changed through its On-Board Diagnostic connection.

This correction removes language relating to the incorporation by reference of certain publications that was inadvertently and inappropriately included in the preamble to the proposed rule. This document denies a petition for rulemaking submitted by Mr. In all cases, the Agency’s goal would be to ensure the maintenance of currently required levels of safety performance.

The test setup is shown in Figure First, NHTSA seeks comments on potential factors that should be considered in designing a pilot program for the safe on-road testing and deployment of vehicles with high and full driving automation and associated equipment.

After consideration of the petitions and all supporting information, NHTSA has decided to grant the petitions for four of the discrete changes, deny one, and request comment in a separate document for the sixth proposed change.

Petitions for reconsideration of this final rule must be received not later than November 13, This will create an information environment in which vehicle and device manufacturers can create and implement applications to improve safety, mobility, and the environment.

The performance requirements would also ensure that seats and overhead luggage racks remain secured and window glazing attached to its standaed during and after a rollover crash, and would ensure that emergency exits remain closed during the rollover crash and operable after the crash. In the tests, a 26 kilogram 57 pound impactor would be propelled from inside a test vehicle toward the window glazing at To ensure that all interested parties have a sufficient amount of time to fully develop their comments, the Agencies are extending the deadline for the submission of written comments on the proposal, including comments on the Preliminary Regulatory Impact Analysis and Initial Regulatory Flexibility Analysis and Draft Environmental Assessment accompanying the proposal, by 30 days.

Applicable only to back doors that open in a vertical direction.

Performance requirements would apply to side and rear windows, and to glass panels and windows on the roof to mitigate partial and complete ejection of passengers from these windows and to ensure that emergency exits remain operable after a rollover crash. Today’s ANPRM requests comment on NHTSA’s estimated cost and benefits of requirements for underride guards on single unit trucks, and for retroreflective material on the rear and sides of the vehicles to improve the conspicuity of the vehicles to other motorists.


Additional Documents type regulations. NHTSA is stanfard on issuing two separate notices—an advanced notice of proposed rulemaking pertaining to rear impact guards and other safety strategies for single unit trucks, and a notice of proposed rulemaking focusing on rear impact guards on trailers and semitrailers. We believe there is widespread conformance of vehicles to the proposed requirements.

The door closure warning system shall be located where it can be clearly seen by the driver. Orient the door subsystem s on the acceleration device in the direction of a rear rmvss.

This document denies a petition for rulemaking, submitted by Ms. Orient the door subsystem s on the acceleration device in the direction of a driver -side impact. Hinge attitude is configured to simulate the vehicle position door fully closed relative to the hinge centerline. The section you are viewing is cited by the following CFR sections.

NHTSA also seeks comments on the research that would be needed to determine how to amend the FMVSS in order to remove such barriers, while retaining those existing safety requirements that will be needed and appropriate for those vehicles.

V2V begins to provide safety benefits only if a significant number of vehicles in the fleet are equipped with it and if there is a means to ensure secure and reliable communication between vehicles.

This rule is effective February 13, Orient the door subsystem s on the acceleration device in the direction opposite to that described in b 2 ii C of this paragraph. In addition, establishing roof strength and crush resistance requirements, to the extent warranted under the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act, would fulfill a statutory provision of the Motorcoach Enhanced Safety Act of incorporated and passed as part of the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Staneard Act.

This final rule is a deregulatory action. Petitions for reconsideration of this final rule must be received not later than February 1, Additionally, consumers can purchase their own tool and locate it in the vehicle where they would be likely to access it in an emergency.

Door Member is that portion of the hinge normally affixed to the door structure and constituting the swinging member.

49 CFR 571.206 – Standard No. 206; Door locks and door retention components.

More limitations on accuracy are described at the GPO site. C Close the door s to be tested and ensure that the door latch es is in the fully-latched position, that the door s is unlocked, and that all windows, if provided, on the door s are closed. In the absence of a requirement that each vehicle have a glass breaking tool, nothing prevents vehicle manufacturers from providing a fmvsz or other means to allow vehicle evacuation during immersion.

Side Rear Door is a door that, in a side view, has 50 percent or more of its opening area to the rear of the rearmost point on the driver ‘s seat back, when the driver ‘s seat is adjusted to its most vertical and rearward position. Hinge Pin is that portion of the hinge normally interconnecting the body and door members and establishing the swing axis. Without a mandate to require and standardize V2V communications, stwndard agency believes that manufacturers will not be able to move forward in an efficient way and that a critical mass of equipped vehicles would take many years to develop, if ever.


Individual hinges of a hinge system are tested in accordance with the procedures below:. Summary This document responds to a petition for reconsideration of the agency’s November final rule making amendments to the procedures for determining which areas of a vehicle are designated seating positions and the procedure for determining the number of seating positions. NHTSA seeks comment on the research report, and solicits additional information, data, and analysis that will aid the agency in developing an effective proposal to require new tmvss vehicles to be V2V-capable.

Fourth, with respect to the granting of exemptions to enable companies to participate in such a program, the Agency seeks comments on the nature of the safety and any other analyses that it should perform in assessing the merits of individual exemption petitions and on the types of terms and conditions standdard should standxrd attaching to exemptions to protect public safety and facilitate the Agency’s monitoring and learning from the testing and deployment, while preserving the freedom to innovate.

The effective date of the final rule published on December 14, 81 FRis delayed until September 5, ESC systems in truck tractors and large buses are designed to reduce untripped rollovers and mitigate severe understeer or oversteer conditions that lead to loss of control by using automatic computer-controlled braking and reducing engine torque output.

Annex ll specifies requirements for standarx locks and door retention components including latches, hinges and other supporting means, to minimize the lilelihood of occupants being thrown from the vehicle as a result of impact. These requirements and the associated test procedures would identify those helmets whose physical characteristics indicate that they likely cannot meet the existing performance requirements of the standard.

The load is to be applied equidistant between the linear center of the engaged portions of the hinge pins and through the centerline of the hinge pin, and as specified in S4. Mount the fixture with latch and striker in the fully latched position in the test machine so as to apply a load in the direction specified in S4.

Petitions for reconsideration of this final rule must be received not later than March 2, Summary This document grants the petition for rulemaking submitted by the Truck Safety Coalition, the Center for Auto Safety, Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety, and Road Safe America on February 19,to establish a safety standard to require automatic forward collision avoidance and mitigation systems on certain heavy vehicles.
