NHTSA Requests Comment on Draft Test Procedures for Driver Assistance Systems

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is seeking public comment on draft research test procedures to assess certain types of advanced driver assistance systems.

ADAS refers to technologies that can help improve driver safety, such as automatic emergency brakes and lane-departure warning systems. According to a document published in the Federal Register on Nov. 21, the agency is looking for comment on whether nine draft research test procedures adequately assess ADAS performance in a test track environment.
