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.

Research Project

As technology evolves and in anticipation of requests to test and further develop high and full ADS, including those in vehicles without traditional controls necessary for a human driver, NHTSA is issuing this ANPRM to obtain public comments on the factors and structure that are appropriate for the Agency to consider in designing a national pilot program that will enable it to facilitate, monitor and learn from the testing and development of the emerging advanced vehicle safety technologies and to assure the safety of those activities.

Fmmvss will publish a list of helmets that have complied with the alternative compliance process and can therefore be certified by their manufacturers. The comment period for the RFC was originally scheduled to end on March 5, Additional Documents type regulations.

We propose to permit optional early compliance with the amended requirements.
