Japan among 40 countries to back U.N. draft regulation on braking systems

Geneva, February 13, 2019 : Forty countries including Japan and the European Union have agreed on a draft U.N. regulation for advanced emergency braking systems (AEBS) for new cars and light commercial vehicles from early 2020, an U.N. agency said on Tuesday.

The U.N. Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) said that the new regulation will significantly improve road safety and compulsory for countries that adopt it at a June session, will impose strict and internationally harmonised requirements for the use of automatic braking at speeds of up to 60 kms per hour to save lives, especially in complex and unpredictable situations such as traffic in urban areas.

Japan and the Europe have said the new AEBS system will become mandatory, representing some 4 million and 15 million new cars respectively each year, the UNECE statement said. 

Over 9,500 fatalities were recorded in car crashes in cities in the Europe in 2016. Inside urban areas, 50% of the fatalities were drivers and  40 percent of them were pedestrians.

The United States, China and India - which have huge domestic carmakers - are not part of the original 1958 agreement on which the latest regulation builds, Rodriguez said.
