Euro NCAP to Mandate Driver Monitoring Systems For Safety Ratings
NTSB Recommends DMS For Semi-Autonomous Vehicles
24 October 2017
Driver Monitoring Systems (DMS) technology is becoming a core element in the next generation of intelligent vehicles to augment drivers, enabling better and safer driving, as well as underpinning the safe migration to Highly Autonomous Vehicles (HAV).
Automotive and transport regulatory, rating and investigative bodies around the world have begun to issue new recommendations for DMS as an integral part of new vehicle designs including those with Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS). These bodies are recommending deployment of advancing DMS technology to deal with the deadly threat of driver distraction and fatigue, as well as mitigation of the risks associated with the migration toward HAV. Effective DMS is being identified as essential to a safe "co-pilot" functionality in HAVs to ensure that drivers remain sufficiently engaged and/or ready to re-assume control as and when required.
In September, Euro NCAP (European body responsible for vehicle safety ratings and testing) unveiled its "In Pursuit of Vision Zero" Roadmap 2025, with the goal of zero automotive accidents. It identified Driver Monitoring as a primary safety feature, targeted by 2020 for new on-road vehicles. Euro NCAP "envisages an incentive for driver monitoring systems that effectively detect impaired and distracted driving and give appropriate warning and take effective action". The roadmap goes further in stating that existing ADAS safety systems can be enhanced by adapting intervention criteria specifically to the driver's dynamic state and further stated that even though it has yet to publish its full guidelines for HAV ratings, DMS will be required there also.
