The same readiness indicator required by S of FMVSS No. may be used to meet the requirement. A list of the elements of the system being monitored. FMVSS requires component-level tests to be conducted on ejection mitigation countermeasures (e.g., rollover-activated side curtain. In , the U.S. legislation adopted – with the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) – a new safety rule, which aims at reducing the risk to be.

Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 226

The original comment period closed September 21, The Agency seeks these comments from interested stakeholders, including State and local authorities, companies, researchers, safety advocates and other experts interested in, engaged in or planning to become engaged in the design, development, testing, and deployment of motor vehicles with high and full driving automation. The resulting value must not exceed 0. Written comments must be received on or before March 20, in order to be considered timely.

More limitations on accuracy are described at the GPO site. Hofferberth on April 1, Except as provided in S5. Motor carriers operating such vehicles in interstate commerce would be required to maintain the speed limiting devices for the service life of the vehicle.

Global Automakers petitioned the agency for reconsideration, seeking to correct what it believes is an error in formula for determining the number of designated seating positions in longer seating positions. When the end of a row is reached, move to the forward-most mark on the next higher row and continue the procedure.

This course is available as an in-house seminar. Divide the side daylight opening into four quadrants by passing a vertical line and a horizontal linein a vehicle vertical longitudinal plane, through the geometric center of the side daylight opening. The agency is proposing fmvws requirements that new large buses of these types must meet in a test in which the vehicle is tipped over from an millimeter mm raised platform onto a level ground surface.

The comment period for the RFC was originally scheduled to end on March 5, The requirements of FMVSS Performance requirements on the vehicle Special requirements for non-standard vehicles Requirements for the test bench Requirements regarding test preparation and execution Testing procedure Vehicle preparation Pre-damaging of laminated glass side fmvsss Determination of impact points Measurement equipment Implementation and evaluation of the tests Practical hints Development strategies for the fulfillment of the regulation Design of appropriate airbags Benefits and effectiveness of safety glass windows Dealing with fixed side windows Conflicts with other safety requirements.


Seat outline means the outer limits of a seat projected laterally onto a vertical longitudinal vehicle plane. This document reopens the comment period for a notice of proposed rulemaking NPRM published Rmvss 28, Restoration of the side marker requirements will have no negative impact on safety or function and will allow motor vehicle manufacturers to avoid unnecessary modifications to their side marker lamps with no fmsvs safety or functional benefit.

During targeting and testing, interior vehicle components and vehicle structures other than specified in S6. Aberizk did not demonstrate how the other features address a motor vehicle safety need.

The effective date of the final rule published on December 14, 81 FRis delayed until June 5, The vehicle has a sliding or folding side door and a roof clearance that enables a person of medium stature to enter the passenger compartment area in an up-right position.

These comments will aid the Agency in setting research priorities as well as inform its subsequent actions to lay a path for innovative vehicle designs and technologies that feature ADSs. At anytime during the production years ending August 31,August 31,and August 31,each manufacturer shall, upon request from the Office of Vehicle Safety Compliance, provide information identifying the vehicles by make, model and vehicle identification number that have been certified as complying with this standard.

If more than one position exists that is closest to the geometric center of the side daylight openingselect the lowest. Effective June 14,with optional early compliance as discussed below. The performance requirements would also ensure that seats and overhead luggage racks remain secured and window glazing attached to its mounting during and after a rollover crash, and would ensure that emergency exits remain closed during the rollover crash and operable after the crash. The effective date of this final rule is January 16, We expect that, as a result of this joint rulemaking, virtually all of these vehicles would be limited to that speed.

Full compliance is required on September 1, The seminar is aimed at development, test and simulation engineers who have to deal with the requirements of FMVSS and want to get a comprehensive overview on the topic. The vehicle is supported off its suspension at an attitude determined in accordance with S6.


In the second part of the course, the testing procedure is described in detail. The petitioners request that NHTSA require underride guards on vehicles not currently required by the FMVSSs to have guards, notably, single unit trucks, and improve the standards’ requirements for all guards, including guards now required for heavy trailers and semitrailers.

His petition includes two requests: The data available to the agency shows there is a great deal fvmss uncertainty surrounding the actual number of occupants that may have died due solely to drowning while trapped in an immersed vehicle. For a side daylight opening forward of the B-pillarplace one secondary target center rearward of the forward primary target by one-third of the horizontal distance between the primary target centers and tangent with upper portion of the offset-line.

Petitions for reconsideration must be received not later than November 10, A discussion of the sensor system used to deploy the countermeasure, including the pertinent inputs to fmgss computer or calculations within the computer and how its algorithm uses that information to determine if the countermeasure should be deployed. This standard will help to ensure that blind, visually impaired, and other pedestrians are able to detect and recognize nearby hybrid and electric vehicles, as required by the PSEA.

Vehicles that are not subject to the phase-in may be certified as meeting the requirements specified in this standard. The petitioner claims that the recommended changes to the relevant safety standards would allow fmvzs manufacturers to better utilize the regenerator technology to increase vehicle fnvss.

49 CFR 571.226 – Standard No. 226; Ejection Mitigation.

The agency agrees that the change was inadvertent and is issuing this final rule to correct this mistake. V2V begins to provide safety benefits only if a significant number of vehicles fmss the fleet are equipped with it and if there is a means to ensure secure and reliable communication between vehicles.

Petitions for reconsideration of this final rule must be received not later than January 30,
