The European Commission (EC) is considering the introduction of a regulation requiring new models to be sold with a built-in speeding information system.
Intelligent Speed Adaptation (ISA) It is a system that notifies and warns the driver that the legal speed limit has been exceeded in a variety of ways. It connects to GPS and digital maps and automatically adapts to the restrictions of individual roads.
ISA has many ways of working. For example, the informational ISA provides feedback to the driver through visual or audio signals, warning the ISA to increase the reverse pressure on the accelerator pedal (making it difficult to accelerate), and intervening in the ISA to reduce overspeed through various functions, such as reducing fuel injection. The driver can Choose to reset/turn off the system and control the vehicle in all modes.
Speeding causes approximately 30% of fatal car accidents. On average, 40% to 60% of drivers exceed the speed limit.
Therefore, the European Union has explored all the ways that advanced technologies can improve road safety. Experiments with the ISA system were carried out in ten European countries: Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Hungary, the Netherlands, Spain and Sweden.An earlier study in the Netherlands showed that ISA can reduce the number of hospitalizations by 15% and the number of deaths by 21%, wrote EK.
According to a survey of EU citizens, approximately 60% to 75% of EU citizens will receive an ISA system in their cars.
Public hearing A draft of a new European regulation was completed a month ago. At a meeting in May, EU members informally approved the draft ISA technical specification, which will be formally adopted in June.
European Safe Transport Committee (ETSC) It says hello ISA approved by EU member states. According to the proposed plan, the EU will develop the world’s most stringent vehicle safety standards next year. Its systems include emergency braking (AEB), lane keeping assist (ELKS) and ISA systems. By 2024, every new car sold in the European Union must be equipped with all these safety systems.
That is, The proposal is By July 6, 2022, the ISA will be mandatory for M1, N1, M2, N2, M3, and N3 vehicles and for all new models in Europe before July 7, 2024. Today, some manufacturers have provided such systems as their additional function vehicles.
