Home Impact of Active Safety Regulations for Advanced Safety Systems in Europe

Regulation in Europe requires carmakers to fit sensors to mitigate driver distraction and drowsiness as well as improve road safety. Autonomous Emergency Braking will become mandatory in cars in Europe in 2022-24. Driver Monitoring Systems (DMS) technology is set to become part of the standard equipment in passenger cars in Europe for improved driver and semi-automated driving safety as it continues to be recognized by industry and regulatory groups such as the European Commission’s GSRII and NCAP. Today’s Passenger Monitoring systems provide warnings or need manual intervention. Also, sensors are being incorporated to mitigate distraction and drowsiness but their capabilities are limited today.

Under the new rules proposed by European Union, all motor vehicles (including trucks, buses, vans, and sport utility vehicles) will have to be equipped with Driver monitoring systems (DMS) including, driver drowsiness and attention warning systems as well as advanced driver distraction warning systems by mid-2022. The regulations will apply 30 months after entry into force with a longer application date provided for a limited number of features in order to allow car manufacturers to adapt their production to the new requirements.
