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.

Additionally, consumers can purchase their own tool and locate it in the vehicle where they would be likely to access it in an emergency.

Summary NHTSA is issuing this NPRM to propose a new Federal motor vehicle safety standard to enhance the rollover structural integrity of certain types of large buses generally, over-the-road buses of any weight and non-over-the-road buses with a gross vehicle 26 rating GVWR greater than 11, kilograms kg 26, 2266 lb.

Ejection Mitigation FMVSS 226: Requirements – Testing – Development Strategies

The static deflection measurement is made with the ejection impactor extended mm outboard of the theoretical point of impact with the countermeasure and attached to the ejection propulsion mechanismincluding any support frame and anchors. NHTSA will publish a list of helmets that have complied with the alternative compliance process and can therefore be certified by their manufacturers.

For vehicles that have an ejection mitigation countermeasure that deploys in the event of a rollover, the vehicle manufacturer must make available to the agency, upon request, the following information: The agency is reopening the comment period for 30 days. By mandating V2V technology in all new vehicles, but not requiring specific safety applications, it is NHTSA’s belief that such capability will in turn facilitate market-driven development and introduction of a variety of safety applications, as well as mobility and environment-related applications that can potentially save drivers both time and fuel.


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

Second, the Agency seeks comments on the use of existing statutory provisions and regulations to allow for the implementation of such 2226 pilot program. Perform the measurement five consecutive times at each orientation. The effective date of this rule is August 24, This correction removes language relating to the incorporation by reference of certain publications that was inadvertently and inappropriately included in the preamble to the proposed rule. NHTSA seeks comment on the research report, and solicits additional information, data, and analysis that will aid the agency in developing an effective proposal to require new light vehicles to be V2V-capable.

To verify this, impactor tests are carried out on the side windows of the standing vehicle. This notification announces the docketing and availability of this research. fmvsd

Determine that the ejection mitigation test device can deliver the ejection impactor targeting point through a zone defined by a cylinder with a 20 mm diameter and mm length, when the ejection impactor is moving at the speed specified in S5. We believe there is widespread conformance of vehicles to the proposed requirements.

Continued high levels of motorcycle related fatalities, fjvss ongoing use of novelty helmets by motorcyclists and the poor performance of these helmets in tests and crashes have prompted the agency to fmves the status of such fmvds under federal law to ensure that all relevant legal requirements are readily enforceable.

If there is more than one target center in a primary quadrant, the primary target for that quadrant is the lowest target in a lower quadrant and the highest target in fmvss upper quadrant. More limitations on accuracy are described at the GPO site.

NHTSA has granted Toyota’s petition and proposes to establish appropriate performance requirements to ensure the safe introduction of adaptive driving beam headlighting systems if equipped on newly manufactured vehicles. The meeting will start at 10 a. We believe that, by requiring that ESC systems be installed on the rest of truck tractors and large buses, this final rule will prevent 40 to 56 percent of untripped rollover crashes and 14 percent of loss-of-control crashes. The vehicle is supported off its suspension at an attitude determined in accordance with S6.


Hofferberth on April 1, Petitions for reconsideration of this final rule must be received not later than August 7, NHTSA will determine whether to issue a rule in the course of the rulemaking proceeding, in accordance with statutory criteria. After consideration of the petitions and all supporting information, NHTSA has fmves to grant the petitions for four of the discrete changes, deny one, and request comment in a separate document for the sixth proposed change.

The Agency seeks these comments from fjvss 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.

Optional early compliance is permitted.

For any side daylight opening forward of the vehicle B-pillarthe primary quadrants are the forward-lower and rearward-upper. Continue checking all the targets listed in steps 1 through 4 of Table 1.

You should submit comments early enough to ensure that Docket Management receives them not later than July 30, During targeting and testing, interior vehicle components and rmvss structures other than specified in S6.
