Soliciting public opinions about a draft of the notification to revise a part of notifications to define the details of the safety standards for road transport vehicles (4 page(s), in English)
Automated driving technology consists of sophisticated and complex sensing devices and electronic control devices. If these devices fail, the expected functions may not be exhibited, and malfunctions may occur. Therefore, in order to establish a function confirmation method that goes down to the electronic control devices, we established the "Study Group on the Way of Car Inspection Method Using an OBD (On-Board Diagnostics)" and examined the car inspection method (e-PTI : Periodical Technical Inspection) using an OBD. The contents of the inspection method were compiled at the Study Group on the Way of Car Inspection Method Using an OBD March 2019. In order to take action based on the results of this study, we will revise the notification (Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism, Notification 2002 No. 619) that defines the details of the safety standards for road transport vehicles.
