General and Pedestrian Safety.
During the MVWG (Motor Vehicle Working Group) in February, in which we participate, the European Commission has presented its program for improving the safety of motor vehicles in the coming years. Two Brussels regulations will be subject to amendments to incorporate new requirements. This is the General Safety Regulation (EC) No 661/2009 (GSR) and the Regulation on the Safety of Pedestrians (EC) No 78/2009.
So we will see between 2018 and 2026, equipment, standard on all new cars, which until now were reserved for the premium segment.
The Commission therefore plans to make it compulsory, among others:
• Autonomous Emergency Braking
• Emergency Braking Display
• Intelligent Speed Adaptation
• Lane Keeping Assist
• Driver Distraction/Drowsiness Monitoring
• Safety-Belt Reminder (all seats)
• Frontal Impact Crash Program
• Side Impact Crash Program
• Rear Impact Crash Program
• Alcohol Interlock Device Installation
• Crash Event Data Recorder
• Reversing Detection
