The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) requested public comment on draft test procedures to determine their ability to properly evaluate the performance of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).
The agency’s request was announced in the Nov. 21 Federal Register notice. NHTSA plans to review comments on nine different procedures designed to examine the capabilities of certain ADAS technologies on a test track.
The procedures cover both light and heavy vehicles. For light vehicles, NHTSA is looking into blind spot warning, opposing traffic safety assist, pedestrian automatic emergency braking, and active parking assist. For heavy vehicles, NHTSA is seeking feedback on forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking systems.
Comments are due Jan. 21, 2020. MEMA will be submitting comments through work with the MEMA Vehicle Safety Subcommittee. For more information, contact Leigh Merino.
