After years of delay, the Department of Transportation announced the camera requirement in 2014, giving automakers several years to prepare. Other types of camera systems can provide a more complete view. Please send one copy (two copies if submitted by mail or hand delivery) of your comments, including attachments, to the file in accordance with the instructions given in the addresses above. Please note that if you submit comments electronically as a PDF file (Adobe), we request that submitted documents be scanned using the Optical Character Recognition (OCR) procedure so that NHTSA can search for and copy certain parts of your submission. Please note that, in accordance with the Data Quality Act, the information quality standards set out in the OMB guidelines and the DOT Data Quality Act must be met in order for the Agency to rely on and use the physical data. Therefore, we recommend that you review the guidelines when creating your comments. Ombin guidelines can be found at; DOT policies are available at The group, which is made up of property and casualty insurers as well as consumer advocates — known by the acronym Advocates — joined other safety and consumer groups that sued the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in 2013, saying the federal agency had not done enough to standardize the equipment. In 2014, NHTSA ordered that devices be allowed to be included in all new cars as of May 1, 2018.

Rearview cameras are produced in different variants depending on the application. (5) We are seeking an opinion on whether NHTSA should allow CMS that use multiple cameras to provide the driver with multiple fields of view in the same image display area. In particular, we are seeking feedback on the security benefits of allowing multiple fields of view. For example, CMSs that work with multiple fields of view may have missing sections on the processed image or image latency issues resulting from longer processing time. What concerns, if any, are about a multi-camera visibility system and how can they be mitigated? The rearview camera of many new vehicle models, such as the 2015 Cadillac models and above, can help improve the field of view by 300% compared to a traditional rear-view mirror. In the United States, the Cameron Gulbransen Kids Transportation Safety Act of 2007[16] required the U.S. Department of Transportation to issue regulations for emergency collision safety within three years and require full compliance within four years of the final decision of the rules. [17] All newly manufactured vehicles to be sold in the U.S. will need to be equipped with rearview cameras as standard starting Tuesday.

Installing a rearview camera in a vehicle that doesn`t have one can be an alternative solution to get a brand new car. If you already own a car that doesn`t have a rearview camera, you can install one at a reasonable price. As the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs delayed the implementation of the law, Gulbransen sued the federal government for the delay and continued to call for the safety of replacement vehicles in government statements, meetings with elected officials and the media. Great notoriety as the pediatrician who accidentally killed his son exposed him to public contempt. Congress passed the Cameron Gulbransen Kids Transportation Safety Act in 2008. The law passed by then-President George W. Bush signed, asked NHTSA to publish a standard by 2011 to improve drivers` ability to spot pedestrians behind their vehicles. NHTSA is asking the public to comment on the approval of camera-based reversing systems, commonly referred to as «camera surveillance systems» or «CMS,» as an alternative to interior and exterior mirrors. Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 111, «Rear Visibility,» currently requires vehicles to be equipped with rear-view mirrors to allow the driver to see objects on the side or side and rear. This communication follows two rule-writing petitions from manufacturers asking for permission to install CMS instead of exterior mirrors on light vehicles and heavy trucks. This DEARNA MECHANISM builds on the Agency`s previous efforts to obtain technical information, data and analysis in support of CMSs so that the Agency can determine whether these systems can provide the same level of safety as the mirrors currently required under FMVSS No.

111. In addition, these cameras can eliminate any visual impairment caused by columns, passengers or seats that usually cause blind spots for drivers when they retreat. Starting this week, all new cars in the U.S. must be equipped with rearview cameras as standard. While NHTSA believes CMS is a promising technology, the agency has ongoing safety concerns that it believes should be addressed before deciding whether or not to propose an amendment to FMVSS No. 111 to allow CMS as a compliance option for rear visibility. Therefore, the Agency has compiled a list of topics on which it requests additional information in order to adequately assess the safety of the approval of the CMS as an alternative compliance option to mirrors. NHTSA is seeking feedback on all aspects of installing camera-based technologies as an alternative to mirrors to meet FMVSS #111 requirements for rear visibility. However, the Agency requires commenters to provide as much research, evidence and/or objective data as possible to support their comments in order to inform the Agency in determining appropriate next steps. No, you don`t need to have a rearview camera for cars built before the law came into effect. But you can have one installed if you want. New cars sold in the U.S.

must be equipped with rearview cameras to help drivers avoid accidents under a federal ordinance that went into effect Wednesday.
