Specialists become closer to creation of unified UN Regulations for the emergency call devices
The meeting of the AECS working group for the development of UN Regulations was held in Paris. Participants discussed the draft of official rules to regulate the requirements for emergency call devices and for equipping of vehicles.
The meeting was attended by representatives of GLONASS Union, FSUE "NAMI", Scientific and Research Institute of Motor Transport, The International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers (OICA), the world's largest automakers, European Association of Automotive Suppliers (CLEPA), the European Commission, the European GNSS Agency (GSA), the UK Transport Research Laboratory (TRL), the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and other experts.
Emergency response systems are functioning or preparing to launch in a number of countries. In Russia since January 1st 2015 is working an Accident Emergency Response System ERA-GLONASS; in Japan works an Emergency Rescue Service HELPNET; in 2018 in the European Union will start the system eCall. After approval of the World Forum of the United Nations regulations developed by the working group will be able to apply for type approval of vehicles for operation, including in those countries where the presence of emergency call device in cars is fixed at the legislative level.
"During the meeting we discussed a number of important issues. For example, it was proposed to increase the requirements on the mechanical stability of the emergency call device to at least the same indicators that are used in Russia for ERA-GLONASS devices," - said GLONASS Union Director of Technical Regulation Victor Gladkikh. "- A retention of proper functionality of the device, including after a serious accident, it is critical to save the life and health of the victims in road accidents. "
The representative of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) highlighted the basic minimum requirements (recommendations) in terms of quality of two-way voice connections that have been developed, including on the basis of the provisions of the Russian standard for ERA-GLONASS GOST R 55531-2013. ITU recommendations are a set of requirements and conformity assessment procedures developed by the Radiocommunication Study Groups in different areas.
Developed by the working group AECS UN Regulations will be submitted to the 109 Session of Working Group on General Safety Provisions GRSG of WP.29 in October 2015 for further approval.
