Delegated Regulation on Intelligent Speed Assistance
The EU Commission finally published the new Delegated Regulation on Intelligent Speed Assistance.
The Delegated Regulation (EU) 2021/1958 specifies test procedures and technical requirements for the type-approval of motor vehicles with regard to their intelligent speed assistance (ISA) systems. ISA was prescribed in the EU in the so-called General Safety Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2019/2144) and will be required from 6 July 2022 for new car models.
Rather than imposing one homogenous technical specification for all ISA systems, the Regulation 2021/1958 permits several options and allows vehicle manufacturers to select the most appropriate of them for their vehicles.
The Regulation also contains a catalogue of road signs that ISA systems should be able to recognize and based upon which the type-approval authorities and technical services shall assess the performance of the ISA systems.
