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.

The periphery includes surfaces millimeters inboard of the inside surface of the window glazing and 25 mm outboard of the outside surface of the side glazing. For a vehicle without an ejection mitigation countermeasure that deploys in a rollover, propel the ejection impactor at any time such that it first strikes the countermeasure, while aligned with any target location specified in S5. Limited-line manufacturer means a manufacturer that sells three or fewer carlines, as that term is defined in 49 CFR To verify this, impactor tests are carried out on the side windows of the standing vehicle.

Additionally, this final rule increases a manufacturer’s design flexibility while providing opportunity to decrease cost without compromising safety. This new standard requires hybrid and electric passenger cars, light trucks and vans LTVsand low speed vehicles LSVs to produce sounds meeting the requirements of this standard.

Locate the geometric center of the side daylight openingestablished fmmvss S5. 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. More limitations on accuracy are described at the GPO site. This document denies a ffmvss petition submitted by Mr.

The performance requirements would ensure that these vehicles provide a sufficient level of survival space to restrained occupants in rollover crashes. Additional Documents type regulations.

Without a mandate to require and standardize V2V communications, the agency believes that manufacturers will not be able to move forward in an efficient way and that a critical mass of equipped vehicles would take many years to develop, if ever. Modified roof means the replacement roof on a motor vehicle whose original roof has been removed, in part or in total, or a roof that has to be built over the driver ‘s compartment in vehicles that did not have an original roof over the driver ‘s compartment.


In all cases, 262 Agency’s goal would be to ensure the maintenance of currently required levels of safety performance. Third, we are incorporating an optional alternative compliance process for manufacturers whose helmets do not comply with the proposed dimensional and compression requirements, but do comply with the performance requirements and all other aspects of 226 No.

This final rule is effective on November 9, After consideration of the petitions and all supporting information, NHTSA has decided 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 projection of the long axis of the cylinder is normal to the target and passes through the target center.

Summary This document denies a rulemaking petition submitted by Mr. 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. V2V begins to provide safety benefits only if a significant number of 22 in the fleet are equipped with it and if there is a means to ensure secure and reliable communication between vehicles.

Implementation of the new standard will enable vehicle manufacturers to develop safety applications that employ V2V communications as an input, two of which are estimated to prevent hundreds of thousands of crashes and prevent over one thousand fatalities annually.

Ejection Mitigation FMVSS 226: Requirements – Testing – Development Strategies

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

Petitions for reconsideration of this final rule must be received by December 27, Further, the compliance test procedures of some FMVSS depend on the presence of such things as a human test fmvs who can follow instructions on test driving maneuvers or a steering wheel that can be used by an automated steering machine. We also request comments on ways to make these regulations easier to read and understand.


The data available to the agency shows there is a great deal of uncertainty surrounding the actual number of occupants that may have died due solely to drowning while trapped in an immersed vehicle.

The section you are viewing is cited by the following CFR sections. Fmvsd early compliance as discussed below. The effective date of this rule is August 24, Public comments are welcome at this meeting, but all should be oral, and any supporting presentations or materials should be submitted to the docket for consideration.

First, NHTSA seeks comments on potential factors that should be considered in designing a pilot program for the safe on-road testing and deployment of vehicles with high and full driving automation and associated equipment.

The impactor and impact speed would simulate the loading from an average size unrestrained adult male impacting a window on the opposite side of a fmvs bus in a rollover.

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

Determine the vertical height of these two points from the level surface. This document denies a petition for rulemaking, submitted by Ms. The agency requests comments on this alternative strategy and other potential enhancements to the current body block test procedure. The focus of this notice is rules that specifically relate to passenger cars, multipurpose passenger vehicles, trucks, buses, trailers, motorcycles, and motor vehicle equipment.

If the minimum distance between the z axes of the targets is less than mm and the minimum distance between the x axes of the targets is less than mm, eliminate the targets in the order of priority given in steps 1 through 4 of 22 1 see Figure 5, 5a and 5b figures provided for illustration purposes.

This final rule is a deregulatory action.
