ACEM information: EDR ?
The CMC releases an in-depth study on the detection of two-wheelers by Advanced Driver Assistance Systems
A new white paper published by the Connected Motorcycle Consortium (CMC) discusses the current state of automobile ADAS from a two-wheeler detection point of view. It also presents an evaluation of potential methods to improve PTW conspicuity and analyses previous relevant studies (e.g. current research, academic papers, technical reports, etc.).
Drivers of powered-two wheelers (PTWs) are vulnerable road users who require special attention from other road users due to the relatively small size of the vehicle. This issue has become even more important with car manufacturers introducing level 3 and 4 automated vehicles, with level 3 transferring (at least temporarily) the responsibility for vehicle control to the vehicle itself.
Motorcycle manufacturers are seriously concerned that this may lead to an increase in two-wheelers accidents, as car drivers start to become more dependent on Level 1 and 2 ADAS and less attentive to other vehicles around them. Motorcycle industry experts are also worried that modern cars lack robust enough equipment to correctly detect motorcycles.
Against this background, reliable detection of PTWs by passenger car ADAS is absolutely essential to avoid car-PTW collisions and to decrease the number of motorcycle accidents. Passenger cars must be able to appropriately recognize motorcycle manoeuvres in ordinary traffic, such as weaving in, leaning while cornering or splitting lanes.

Fundamentals of digital forensics of passenger cars and motorcycles
Experimental collisions of vehicles (collisions at crossroads, damage to vehicles in parking lots, vehicle collisions, collisions between cyclists and pedestrians)
Analytical evaluation of the results of experimental collisions
During the test collisions, the participants will gain practical experience of damage to vehicles resulting from the crashing of an unknown vehicle, the collision of a vehicle with a standing column at low speeds. We will compare the traces that occur in such collisions. We will also touch on the issue of collisions at low speeds and the possibility of bodily injuries (tension of the cervical vertebrae), collisions at intersections while forcing advantage, collision with a cyclist, collision with a pedestrian, etc.
During the lectures, on the basis of practical examples, they will get acquainted with the program for the reconstruction of traffic accidents, what data we need and how to obtain them. In 2021, there are quite a few innovations in the field of reading data from vehicles, as in 2022 all new vehicles will be equipped with EDR, and there are already many vehicles that allow readings already now.
The discussion will ensure the exchange of practical experience and answers to open questions, which will ensure greater efficiency at work, improved quality of service and consequently improve the competitiveness of your companies and the quality of work in the automotive profession.
In order to successfully resolve claims and prevent fraud, staff training is essential.

Info - General
The unofficially called General Safety Regulation has been published as regulation (EU)2019/2144 in the Official Journal of the EU L325 on 16 December 2019. According to article 20, the Regulation will enter into force the 20th day after the publication. That means that from the 5th of January 2020 the Regulation is directly applicable to all citizens and enterprises in the EU as European law. The regulation will require the equipment of ADAS systems, pedestrian protection, and Event Data Recorders (EDR) in new motor vehicles. The regulation has foreseen a number of transition periods. The first phase including EDR will enter into force for new type-approvals from 6 July 2022 and for new registrations from 7 July 2024 as far as passenger cars and vans concerned. For trucks and buses, these dates are 7 January 2026 and 7 January 2029.
For the second phase, applicable to advanced emergency braking for pedestrians and cyclists and for advanced driver distraction warning systems, the dates are 7 July 2024 resp. 7 July 2026 for all categories. The technical requirements for EDR and the different ADAS systems will be published later by the European Commission in a so-called delegated act.
Article 6 of the Regulation stipulates that these technical requirements have to be ready 15 months before the first application date, which is 7 April 2021. The technical requirements for EDR are at this moment prepared by an informal working group at the UNECE World Forum for Harmonization of Vehicle Regulations (WP.29). The European Commission, as well as the authorities from many countries, including the EU Member States, the USA, China, Japan, NGO’s and Manufacturers, participate in this working group. Differences in priorities, safety philosophies, and above all cultural differences have to overcome before finding a consensus.
The aim is that the draft requirements are ready for adoption by WP29 in November 2020. That would allow adoption as a delegated act by the European Commission, before the date required by the regulation (April 2021). To achieve this schedule and avoid a delay in the introduction of EDR, the working group is discussing a two-phase introduction of EDR: in 2022 a first phase based on the current US requirements plus some easy to agree on amendments and the second phase with all parameters for ADAS systems in 2025.
EDR / DSSAD - passenger cars (UNECE)
Progress halted due to the Corona crisis: the session in Washington (at the end of March) was canceled and therefore it took a while to find a way of working. They now have 2-weekly 2-hour online sessions, and work is underway on further proposals.
Status DSSAD for ALKS (logging of Lane Keeping System actions). A version of the DSSAD text had already been delivered during the Tokyo session and has now also been discussed in the GRVA (Groupe Rapporteur Vehicle Automatic, the parent group for DSSAD). Most elements have been approved, and the text has therefore largely been taken over as a paragraph in the ALKS regulations. The ALKS regulations are on the agenda for discussion in the WP.29 on June 23/24. The ALKS regulations, with the DSSAD description in paragraph 8, can be found here.
EDR status. Discussions on the EDR are much more diverse, and it has taken a long time to find a reasonable online working method. The assignment from WP.29 was to deliver a First Step EDR at the November session, plus a document (roadmap) for the Next Step EDR. This means that a First Step EDR regulation must already be submitted to the GRSG (Groupe Rapporteur Securite Generale, our parent group for EDR) this month.
A lot of work has been done on the EDR / DSSAD within the UNECE. Not everything has been met by the GRSG deadline. The body of the EDR regulations is more or less finished, and that will also be sent to the WP.29 and discussed. But the data elements are still under discussion (weekly sessions at the moment). The intention is that the data elements for Step 1 will be completed this year so that they can be transferred to WP.29 in March 2021.
Step 2 will come after that. The timelines for the EDR regulations within the EU (in accordance with the GSR) will remain in place but will be tight to complete the regulation on time ( under the MVWG).

EUDARTS CDR TEST & TRAINING DAYS SLOVENIA
Jože Škrilec / Hans Bot /Jeroen van Essen February 2020.
On September XX and XX 2020 we will conduct various crash tests and specific training courses in Murska Sobota, Slovenia. Multiple crash tests with data readout from vehicles EDR were demonstrated using the Bosch CDR crash data retrieval tool. The two-day event, where multiple cars were crashed in several different ways, creating deployment and non-deployment events that will be read using Bosch CDR.
An advanced CDR course will be given between the crash tests. Those who successfully complete the EUDARTS Analyst course can follow this advanced. New brands and new technologies will be discussed and tested with the latest tools.
Experts will also explain to you how a CDR report can best be described.
How we can quickly validate data in Europe (NCAP)
The latest and future coverage from the various manufacturers as supported by the latest version of the CDR Tool software and other in-vehicle data found in light trucks, passenger cars, SUVs, motorcycles, heavy commercial vehicles, active safety systems, autonomous driving, and infotainment systems.
Actual examples and cases in Europe.
Finding the connected data elements in a report and looking for new exceptions and latest anomalies and more.
There will be 10 trainers from 10 different European countries present in Murska. As a result, it is possible that when more than 14 students participate in a language other than the English language, we can adjust the presentation language.

EUDARTS EDR Analyst Course
Due to the phenomenon COVID 19, we are forced to postpone all our classroom courses. We tried to convert the course so that we could deliver it digitally with Microsoft Teams. However, it turned out to us that we had to lose so much in quality and plan so many days to be able to give the course that we decided not to do this. The EDR Analysis course must meet the mandatory 32 study load hours and if we have to do this digitally, the course lasts 8 days of 4 hours and we cannot do practical exercises. This is not feasible for the students.
If you are nevertheless interested in the EDR analysis course, send your name and email address to firstname.lastname@example.org . We can then make a student list per country and you will receive a message from us when a course can be given again and we can schedule you.
If you have a location where a COVID 19 proof course can be given of at least 10 people, we would like to hear from you and we can schedule a course.
EUDARTS EDR Analyst Kurs
Aufgrund des Phänomens COVID 19 sind wir gezwungen, alle unsere Unterrichtskurse zu verschieben. Wir haben versucht, den Kurs so zu konvertieren, dass wir ihn mit Microsoft Teams digital bereitstellen können. Es stellte sich jedoch heraus, dass wir so viel an Qualität verlieren und so viele Tage einplanen mussten, um den Kurs geben zu können, dass wir beschlossen, dies nicht zu tun. Der EDR-Analysekurs muss die obligatorischen 32 Lernstunden erfüllen. Wenn wir dies digital durchführen müssen, dauert der Kurs 8 Tage mit 4 Stunden und wir können keine praktischen Übungen machen. Dies ist für die Studierenden nicht machbar.
Wenn Sie dennoch an dem EDR-Analysekurs interessiert sind, senden Sie Ihren Namen und Ihre E-Mail-Adresse an email@example.com . Wir können dann eine Studentenliste pro Land erstellen und Sie erhalten eine Nachricht von uns, wenn ein Kurs erneut gegeben werden kann und wir Sie planen können.
Wenn Sie einen Ort haben, an dem ein COVID 19-Proof-Kurs mit mindestens 10 Personen angeboten werden kann, würden wir gerne von Ihnen hören und einen Kurs planen.
EUDARTS EDR Analisten-cursus
Door het fenomeen COVID 19 zijn wij genoodzaakt om al onze klassikale cursussen uit te stellen. We hebben geprobeerd om de cursus om te bouwen zodat we hem digitaal konden geven met Microsoft Teams.
Ons bleek dat we dan echter zoveel aan kwaliteit in moeten boeten en zoveel dagen moeten inplannen om de cursus te kunnen geven dat we besloten hebben hier van af te zien.
De EDR Analyse cursus moet namelijk aan de verplichte 32 studiebelastingsuren voldoen en als we dat digitaal moeten doen dan duurt de cursus 8 dagen van 4 uur en kunnen we geen praktijkoefeningen doen. Dit is niet haalbaar voor de studenten.
Indien U toch interesse heeft in de EDR-analyse cursus stuur dan uw naam en emailadres naar firstname.lastname@example.org.
Wij kunnen dan een studentenlijst maken per land en dan krijgt U van ons bericht wanneer er weer een cursus gegeven kan worden en dan kunnen we U inplannen.
Mocht U zelf een locatie hebben waar een Covid 19 proof cursus gegeven kan worden van minimaal 10 man dan horen wij dat graag van U en kunnen we een cursus inplannen.
