Latest update about the new General Safety Regulation:

Jan Paul Peters / Hans Bot,  April 18th, 2019

 

Event Data Recorders (EDR) will soon become mandatory in the EU for new cars, vans, heavy goods vehicles, and buses, as a part of a package of safety measures in the General Safety Regulation (GSR), approved by  European Parliament on the 16th of April 2019. The new regulation will require new vehicles to be fitted with a large number of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). The European Parliament managed to approve the text for the regulation in its last session before the upcoming European elections and avoided a delay due to the installation of the new parliament. The text needs still to be verified by the linguistic and legal services and to be approved by the Council of Ministers. As there was already an informal agreement by the Council, no major changes to the text are expected. Application dates Publication of the Regulation is expected in September/October, the entry into force is 20 days after the date of publication. New type approvals for cars and vans have to comply 30 months after the entry into force (March 2022 expected) and new registrations have to comply after 54 months (March 2024 expected). Heavy Good Vehicles and Busses (Category M2, M3, N2, and N3) have to comply after 42 resp. 78 months.

ADAS required

 

The new regulation will require motor-vehicles to be equipped with the following advanced safety devices:

  1. Advanced emergency braking (cars, vans)  

  2. Alcohol interlock installation facilitation (cars, vans, trucks, buses)

  3. Drowsiness and attention detection (cars, vans, trucks, buses)

  4. Distraction recognition / prevention (cars, vans, trucks, buses)

  5. Event data recorder (cars, vans, trucks, buses)

  6. Emergency stop signal (cars, vans, trucks, buses)

  7. Full-width frontal occupant protection crash test improved seatbelts (cars and vans)

  8. Head impact zone enlargement for pedestrians and cyclists -safety glass in case of a crash (cars and vans)

  9. Intelligent speed assistance (cars, vans, trucks, buses)

  10. Lane keeping assist (cars, vans)

  11. Pole side-impact occupant protection (cars, vans)

  12. Reversing camera or detection system (cars, vans, trucks, buses)

  13. Tyre pressure monitoring system (vans, trucks, buses)

  14. Vulnerable road user detection and warning on the front and side of the vehicle (trucks and buses)

  15. Vulnerable road user improved direct vision from the driver’s position (trucks and buses)

 

Event data recorders

 

Art 6 of the new regulation specifies the EDR: Event data recorders shall meet the following requirements in particular:

(a) the data that they are capable of recording and storing with respect of the period shortly before, during and immediately after a collision shall include the vehicle's speed, braking, position and tilt of the vehicle on the road, the state and rate of activation of all its safety systems, 112-based eCall in-vehicle system, brake activation and relevant input parameters of the onboard active safety and accident avoidance systems, with high level of accuracy and ensured survivability of data;

(b) it shall not be possible to deactivate the devices;

(c) the way in which they are capable of recording and storing data shall be such that:

     (i) they operate on a closed-loop system;

     (ii) the data collected is anonymized and protected against manipulation and misuse;

     (iii) precise vehicle type, version and variant, and in particular the active safety and accident avoidance systems fitted to the vehicle, can be       identified;

(d) the data can be made available to national authorities, on the basis of Union or national law only for the purpose of accident research and analysis, including for the purposes of type-approval of systems and components and in compliance with Regulation (EU) 2016/679, over a standardized interface.

 

An event data recorder shall not be capable of recording and storing the last four digits of the vehicle indicator section of the vehicle identification number or any other information which could allow the individual vehicle itself, its owner or holder, to be identified. The European Commission shall adopt delegated acts in accordance laying down detailed rules. Those delegated acts shall be published at least 15 months before the relevant application dates.

Comparison with US regulation on EDR

 

The new EU regulation will require the fitment of an EDR, while the US regulation 49CFR Part 563 does not require the EDR itself, but requires a minimum set of parameters if an EDR is fitted. The new EU regulation will require an EDR to record more parameters than the current US regulation. A separate US law (Driver Privacy Act of 2015) specifies the ownership of the EDR data and the conditions of use, for example, to facilitate emergency medical responses or in court, or after written consent. The new EU regulation requires to respect the General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (GDPR), doesn’t allow the storing of the last 4 digits of the VIN, but doesn’t specify the ownership or use.

 

Next steps

 

First of all, it will be necessary to monitor the drafting of the detailed rules during the coming months. The requirements for EDR are mainly aimed to collect data for research purposes. Future will learn how EDR can be used in individual accident cases. In some Member States, the use of  EDR after an accident has become a routine and several court cases have given a solid jurisprudence, but there are also the Member States with almost no experience. Monitoring of national legislation on EDR is needed.

Development of electronics in Motorcycles

will facilitate EDR-capability

Jan Paul Peters and Kees Duivestein, April 26, 2019

In Europe, Jan Paul Peters and Kees Duivestein started a tour to Head Quarters of the major Motorcycle OEM’s. As it seems EDR currently isn’t a major topic in the Motorcycle Industry, although the potential contribution to safety and reducing casualties on European roads certainly isn’t neglected.

 

For now upcoming implementation as the (Delegated) Regulation (EU) Nr. 134/2014 of 16 December 2013 attracts more attention, especially the IUPR (In-Use Performance Ratio) with regard to the Euro 5 environmental performance of motorcycles.

 

The Regulation will be effective in 2024 but there is still no picture of "how", in particular, the PEMS (Portable Emissions Measurement System), which is quite a challenge for motorcycles for practical reasons.

 

But the technical consequences such as the OBD for Motorcycles also implicates steps further to EDR-capability. For one of the OEM's, some actions are set to get the complete overview of models with EDR-capability.

 

Forensic researchers of the Dutch Police force will keep this in mind in case relevant accidents with these models will occur in the near future. With MODARTS we will continue our efforts to get the full picture of required specifications for Motorcycle EDR.
