The manufacturer may select different compliance options for different designated seating positions to which the requirements of this section are applicable.
Petitions for reconsideration of this final rule must be received not later than January 30, Summary By initiating rulemaking to fmvsss enhancing related safety standards, this notice grants the part of the petition for rulemaking submitted by Ms. The agency believes that requiring V2V communication capability in new light vehicles would facilitate the fmmvss and introduction of a number of advanced vehicle safety applications.
The documents referenced in this notification will be available in the docket as of April 16, To reduce the risk of pedestrian crashes, especially for the blind and 2002a, and to satisfy the mandate in the Pedestrian Safety Fmvsss Act PSEA of this final rule establishes a new Federal motor vehicle safety standard FMVSS setting minimum sound requirements for hybrid and electric vehicles.
The direction of travel is posteriorly. Marianne Karth and the Truck Safety Coalition relating to rear impact underride guards. WHIPS seats versus performance in.
The performance requirements would ensure that these vehicles provide a sufficient level of survival space to restrained occupants in rollover crashes. Written comments must be received on or before March 20, in order to be considered timely.
Today’s proposal would facilitate the introduction of new technologies including hydrogen fuel cell vehicles and 48 volt mild hybrid technologies, and responds not only to GTR No. Place a test dummy at each outboard designated seating position equipped with a head restraint. If the head restraint returns to a retracted position upon removal of the dummy, manually place it in the noted position.
Intended for occupant use means, when used in reference to the adjustment of a seat, positions other than that intended solely for the purpose of allowing ease of ingress and egress of occupants and access to cargo storage areas of a vehicle.

If the midsagittal plane of the dummy cannot be aligned within 15 mm of the head restraint centerline then align the midsagittal plane of the dummy as close as possible to the head restraint centerline.
Position each test dummy as specified in S NHTSA will publish a fmvss of helmets that have complied with the alternative compliance process and can therefore be certified by their manufacturers. When tested in accordance with S5. You should submit comments early enough to ensure that Docket Management receives them not later than March 24, This discussion must include, at a minimum, accurate information on fmvas following topics:.
Further, the compliance 20a procedures rdgulation some FMVSS depend on the presence of such things as a human test driver who can follow instructions on test driving maneuvers or a steering wheel that can be used by an automated steering machine.
Except as provided in S4. V2V begins to provide safety benefits only if a significant number of vehicles in the fleet are equipped with it and if there is a means to ensure secure and reliable communication between vehicles. The proposed FMVSS would also require each vehicle, as manufactured and sold, to have its device set to a speed not greater than a specified speed and to be equipped with means of reading the vehicle’s current speed setting and the two previous speed settings including the time and date the settings were changed through its On-Board Diagnostic connection.
Petitions for reconsideration of this final rule must be received not later than November 13, This final rule 2002a most aspects of a petition for reconsideration of a February 27,final rule that expanded the applicability of the Federal motor vehicle safety standard for child restraint systems to child fmvss a regulation sold for children weighing up to 36 kilograms kg 80 pounds lb.
Petitions for reconsideration of this final rule must be fkvss not fmvss fmvvss regulation than August 7, After consideration of the petitions and all supporting rebulation, NHTSA has decided to grant the petitions for four of the discrete changes, deny one, and request comment in a fmvss a regulation document for the sixth proposed change.
NHTSA also seeks comments on the research that would be needed to determine how to amend the FMVSS in order to remove such barriers, while retaining those existing safety requirements that will be needed and appropriate for those vehicles. Grow and Glow in Life you wanna grow? If there is more than one inclination position closest to 25 degrees from the vertical, set the seat back inclination to the position closest to and rearward of 25 degrees.
This final rule is effective on November 9, The comment period for the request for comment published January 18,at 83 FRis extended. The stabilized test temperature of the test dummy is at any temperature fjvss between 69 degrees F and 72 degrees F, inclusive. This document denies a petition for rulemaking, submitted by Ms. The agency is reopening the comment period for 30 days. Adjust the front head restraint so that its top is at any height between and inclusive of mm and mm and its backset is in the maximum position other than allowed by S4.
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 220a and non-over-the-road buses with a gross vehicle weight rating GVWR greater than 11, kilograms kg 26, pounds lb. The section you are viewing is cited by the following CFR sections.
Virtual Seat Manufacturing and Testing for FMVSS 202a Backset Prediction
Whenever a range of measurements is specified, the head restraint must meet the requirement at any position of adjustment within the specified range.
Push rearward on the dummy’s cmvss to force the pelvis into the seat so there is no gap between the pelvis and the seat back or until contact occurs between the back of the dummy’s calves and the front of the seat cushion such that the angle between the dummy’s thighs and legs begins to change.
This material is intended to better inform the public as they prepare comments in response to the RFC. Where manufacturer options are specified in this section, the manufacturer must select an option by the time it certifies the vehicle and may not thereafter select a different option for that vehicle. The agency believes that requiring V2V communication capability in new light vehicles would facilitate the development and introduction of a number of advanced vehicle safety applications.
Summary This document responds to a petition for reconsideration of the agency’s November final rule making amendments to the procedures for determining which areas of a vehicle are designated seating positions and the procedure for determining the number of seating positions.
By initiating rulemaking to consider enhancing related safety standards, this notice grants the part of the petition for rulemaking submitted by Ms. When the anterior surface of the head restraint is impacted in accordance with S5.
Optional early compliance as discussed ffmvss.
This reggulation removes fmvss a regulation relating to the incorporation by reference of certain publications that was inadvertently and regulatjon included in the preamble to the proposed rule. Both of those applications address intersection crashes, which are among the most deadly crashes that U. The petitioner claims that the recommended changes to the relevant tmvss standards would allow vehicle manufacturers to better utilize the regenerator technology to increase vehicle efficiency.
This NPRM proposes rulemaking on these and other requirements to increase the correct use of child restraint anchorage systems and tether anchorages, and the correct use of child restraints, with the fmvsx goal of reducing injuries to restrained children in motor vehicle crashes. These requirements and the associated test procedures would identify those helmets whose physical characteristics indicate that they likely cannot meet the existing performance requirements of the standard.
