IIHS creates Safeguard Ratings for Partial Automation

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety is developing a new ratings program that evaluates the safeguards that vehicles with partial automation employ to help drivers stay focused on the road. The safeguards will be rated good, acceptable, marginal or poor. To earn a good rating, systems will need to ensure that the driver's eyes are directed at the road and their hands are either on the wheel or ready to grab it at all times. Escalating alerts and appropriate emergency procedures when the driver does not meet those conditions will also be required.

NHTSA publishes FMVSS 227 Bus Rollover Structural Integrity

article imageNHTSA is issuing this final rule to establish Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 227, "Bus rollover structural integrity," to enhance the rollover structural integrity of over-the-road buses (motorcoaches), and other buses with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) greater than 11,793 kilograms (kg) (26,000 pounds (lb)). This final rule, issued pursuant to the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21), requires the buses to provide a "survival space" in a rollover test to protect occupants from possible collapse of the bus structure around them.
