Forward Collision Warning and Mitigation Vehicle Test Procedure - Truck and Bus
This SAE Recommended Practice (RP) establishes uniform powered vehicle level test procedure for Forward Collision Avoidance and Mitigation (FCAM) systems (also identified as Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) systems) used in highway commercial vehicles and coaches greater than 4535 Kg (10,000 lb.) GVWR. This RP does not apply to trailers, dollies, etc. and does not intend to exclude any particular system or sensor technology. These FCAM systems utilize various methodologies to identify, track and communicate data to the operator and vehicle systems to warn, intervene and/or mitigate in the longitudinal control of the vehicle.
Rationale: J3029 is up for 5-year review. At the present time, J3029 is a "test procedure" with no performance requirements. J3045 started as a test procedure only, but as the performance requirements were developed, it became apparent that integrating the test procedure with the performance requirements would better serve the truck and bus community. The intent is to emulate the J3045 document wherein both the test procedure and minimum performance requirements are found in the same document.
