1. SCOPE
This Regulation applies to the lane departure warning system of vehicles of Categories M ,
N , M and N .
2. DEFINITIONS
For the purposes of this Regulation:
2.1. "Approval of a vehicle type" means the full procedure whereby a Contracting Party to the
Agreement certifies that a vehicle type meets the technical requirements of this Regulation;
2.2. "Vehicle type with regard to its Lane Departure Warning System" means a category of
vehicles which do not differ in such essential respects as:
(a)
(b)
(c)
The manufacturer's trade name or mark;
Vehicle features which significantly influence the performances of the Lane Departure
Warning System;
The type and design of the Lane Departure Warning System;
2.3. "Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS)" means a system to warn the driver of an
unintentional drift of the vehicle out of its travel lane;
2.4. "Lane" means one of the longitudinal strips into which a roadway is divided (as shown in
Annex 3);
2.5. "Visible lane marking" means delineators intentionally placed on the borderline of the lane
that are directly visible by the driver while driving (e.g. not covered by snow, etc.);
2.6. "Rate of departure" means the subject vehicle’s approach velocity at a right angle to the
visible lane marking at the warning issue point;
2.7. "Common space" means an area on which two or more information functions (e.g.
symbols) may be displayed, but not simultaneously.
3. APPLICATION FOR APPROVAL
3.1. The application for approval of a vehicle type with regard to the LDWS shall be submitted by
the vehicle manufacturer or by his authorized representative.

5. SPECIFICATIONS
5.1. General
5.1.1. Any vehicle fitted with a LDWS complying with the definition of Paragraph 2.3. above shall
meet the requirements contained in Paragraphs 5.1 to 5.5. of this Regulation.
5.1.2. The effectiveness of LDWS shall not be adversely affected by magnetic or electrical fields.
This shall be demonstrated by fulfilling the technical requirements and respecting the
transitional provisions of Regulation No. 10 by applying:
(a)
(b)
The 03 series of amendments for vehicles without a coupling system for charging the
Rechargeable Energy Storage System (traction batteries);
The 04 series of amendments for vehicles with a coupling system for charging the
Rechargeable Energy Storage System (traction batteries).
5.2. Performance Requirements
5.2.1. Whenever the system is active, as specified in Paragraph 5.2.3. below, the LDWS shall
warn the driver if the vehicle crosses over a visible lane marking for the lane in which it is
running, on a road with a directional form that varies between straight and a curve having an
inner lane marking with a minimum radius of 250m, when there has been no purposeful
demand to do so. Specifically:
5.2.1.1. It shall provide the driver with the warning specified in Paragraph 5.4.1. below when tested
in accordance with the provisions of Paragraph 6.5. below (departure warning test) and with
lane markings as specified in Paragraph 6.2.3. below.
5.2.1.2. The warning mentioned in Paragraph 5.2.1. above may be suppressed when there is a
driver action which indicates an intention to depart from the lane.
5.2.2. The system shall also provide the driver with the warning specified in Paragraph 5.4.2.
below when tested in accordance with the provisions of Paragraph 6.6. below (failure
detection test). The signal shall be constant.
5.2.3. The LDWS shall be active at least at vehicle speeds above 60km/h, unless manually
deactivated as per Paragraph 5.3. below.
5.3. If a vehicle is equipped with a means to deactivate the LDWS function, the following
conditions shall apply as appropriate:
5.3.1. The LDWS function shall be automatically reinstated at the initiation of each new ignition
"on" (run) cycle.
5.3.2. A constant optical warning signal shall inform the driver that the LDWS function has been
deactivated. The yellow warning signal specified in Paragraph 5.4.2. below may be used for
this purpose.

6. TEST PROCEDURE
6.1. The manufacturer shall provide a brief documentation package which gives access to the
basic design of the system and, if applicable, the means by which it is linked to other vehicle
systems. The function of the system shall be explained and the documentation shall
describe how the operational status of the system is checked, whether there is an influence
on other vehicle systems, and the method(s) used in establishing the situations which will
result in a failure warning signal being displayed.
6.2. Test Conditions
6.2.1. The test shall be performed on a flat, dry asphalt or concrete surface.
6.2.2. The ambient temperature shall be between 0°C and 45°C.
6.2.3. Visible Lane Markings
6.2.3.1. The visible lane markings used in the lane departure warning tests of Paragraph 6.5. below
shall be those of one of the Contracting Parties as identified in Annex 3 to this Regulation,
with the markings being in good condition and of a material conforming to the standard for
visible lane markings of that Contracting Party. The visible lane marking layout used for the
testing shall be recorded.
6.2.3.2. The vehicle manufacturer shall demonstrate, through the use of documentation, compliance
with all the other lane markings identified in Annex 3 to this Regulation. Any such
documentation shall be appended to the test report.
6.2.3.3. In the case the vehicle type may be equipped with different variants of the LDWS with
regional specific adjustments; the manufacturer shall demonstrate through documentation
that the requirements of this Regulation are fulfilled in all variants.
6.2.4. The test shall be performed under visibility conditions that allow safe driving at the required
test speed.
6.3. Vehicle Conditions
6.3.1. Test Weight
The vehicle may be tested at any condition of load, the distribution of the mass among the
axles being that stated by the vehicle manufacturer without exceeding any of the maximum
permissible mass for each axle. No alteration shall be made once the test procedure has
begun. The vehicle manufacturer shall demonstrate through the use of documentation that
the system works at all conditions of load.
6.3.2. The vehicle shall be tested at the tyre pressures recommended by the vehicle manufacturer.
6.3.3. In the case where the LDWS is equipped with a user-adjustable warning threshold, the test
as specified in Paragraph 6.5. below shall be performed with the warning threshold set at its
maximum lane departure setting. No alteration shall be made once the test procedure has
begun.

7.1.2. Consider that the modifications made affect the conditions of the granting of the approval
