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.

Limited-line manufacturer means a manufacturer that sells three or fewer carlines, as that term is defined in 49 CFR 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. The agency requests comments on this alternative strategy and other potential enhancements to the current body block test procedure.

Zero displacement plane means, a vertical plane parallel to the vehicle longitudinal centerline and tangent to the most outboard surface of the ejection headform when the headform is aligned with an impact target location and just touching the inside surface of a window covering the side daylight opening.

Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 226

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. At anytime during the production years ending August 31,August 31,and August 31,each manufacturer shall, upon request from the Fmvvss of Vehicle Safety Compliance, provide information identifying the vehicles by make, model and vehicle identification number that have been certified as complying with this standard.

Global Automakers petitioned the agency for reconsideration, seeking to correct what it believes is fmvas error in formula for 2226 the number of designated seating positions in longer seating positions.

The agency will continue to conduct research and to evaluate real-world performance of these systems through track testing and field operational testing. The petitioner claims that the recommended changes to the relevant safety standards would allow vehicle manufacturers to better utilize the regenerator technology to 262 vehicle efficiency. Measure the horizontal distance between the centers of the primary targets.

The vehicle has a sliding or folding side door and a roof clearance that enables a person of medium stature to enter the passenger compartment area in an up-right position.

For a vehicle with an ejection mitigation countermeasure that deploys in a rollover, using the ejection propulsion mechanismpropel the ejection impactor such that it first fmvsss the countermeasure, while aligned with any target location specified in S5. Movable window means a daylight opening composed of glazing designed to be moved with respect to the vehicle or frame while the vehicle is in motion. If more than one position exists that is closest to the geometric center of the side daylight openingselect the lowest.


Vehicles that are altered on or after September 1,and fmvxs that are manufactured in two or more stages on or after September 1,must meet the requirements of S4.

The trainer comes to your site – you save travel expenses and travel time. 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.

In addition, to the extent warranted under the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act, establishing advanced glazing standards for the side and rear portals of the subject buses would fulfill a statutory provision of the Motorcoach Enhanced Safety Act of incorporated and passed as part of the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act.

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.

In addition, establishing roof strength and crush rmvss requirements, to the extent warranted under the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act, would fulfill a statutory provision of the Motorcoach Enhanced Safety Act of incorporated and passed as fkvss of the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act.

Ejection mitigation test device specifications. Petitions for reconsideration of this final rule must be received not f,vss than August 7, The report also explores technical, legal, security, and privacy issues related to the implementation of V2V. The projection of the long axis of the cylinder is normal to the target and passes through the target center.

At each increment of rotation, attempt to fit the target within the offset line of the side daylight opening.

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. Check-in through security will begin at 9 a. Fourth, with respect to the granting of exemptions to enable companies to participate in such a program, cmvss Agency seeks comments on the nature of the safety and any other analyses that it should perform in assessing the merits of individual exemption petitions and on the types of terms and conditions it should consider attaching to exemptions to protect public safety and facilitate the Agency’s monitoring and learning from the testing and deployment, while preserving the freedom to innovate.


At the time of launch the ejection impactor is rotated by 90 degrees about the ejection headform y axis, from the orientation specified in S5.

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

In the absence of a requirement that each vehicle have a glass breaking tool, nothing prevents vehicle manufacturers from providing a tool or other means to allow vehicle evacuation during immersion.

For the purpose of calculating average annual production of vehicles for each manufacturer and the number of vehicles manufactured by each manufacturer under S8. If this distance is greater than or equal to mm, place a target such that its center bisects a line connecting the centers of the remaining targets.

The compliance date for the amendments in this final rule is September 27, NHTSA will publish a list of helmets that have complied with the alternative compliance process and can therefore be certified by their manufacturers.

NHTSA seeks comments on the economic impact of its regulations on small entities. ADS testing and development are already underway in several areas of the United States. This standard applies to passenger cars, and to multipurpose passenger vehiclestrucks and buses with a gross vehicle weight rating of 4, kg or less, except walk-in vans, modified roof vehicles and convertibles.

Small manufacturer means an original vehicle manufacturer that produces or assembles fewer than 5, vehicles annually for sale in the United States. Prevost petitioned to revise the seat belt anchorage strength requirements for last row seats having no passenger seating behind them.

The initial compliance date is September 1,with full phase in by September 1, During targeting and testing, interior vehicle components and vehicle structures other than specified in S6. Thompson did not provide persuasive quantitative data to show adopting his requested changes would result in a net benefit 2226 safety.

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.

We propose to permit optional early compliance with the amended requirements. The same readiness indicator required fmvse S4.
