To ensure these tests are objective (i.e., clear about exactly how they should be executed), and can be accurately and repeatedly performed, each draft procedure contains detailed specifications pertaining to test conduct including, but not limited to, the equipment, facilities, instructions, and tolerances needed to perform them in the most objective and consistent manner possible. While the procedures include draft evaluation criteria, there are no pass/fail assessments provided because they have been assembled for research purposes only. NHTSA invites public comment on each of its draft research ADAS test procedures. Specifically, the agency seeks information related to the following areas of interest. In your responses, please clearly specify to which test procedure(s) your comments apply. 1. Can the test procedures be expected to assess adequately for the purposes of research, within practical limitations, the performance of the underlying ADAS technologies? If not, please provide specific reasons why, and suggestions for how they may be improved. 2. Do any of the draft research test procedures contain elements that may potentially confound the system operation and/or test results (e.g., regarding test conduct)? If so, please indicate what those elements are and how they might be addressed and/or mitigated? 3. Are the draft research test procedures clearly written, understandable, and executable? If not, please provide specific areas for which clarification is necessary, and 7 National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (2015, December).

Are the ranges of test speeds, speed combinations, and/or speed increments specified within each draft research test procedure reasonable? If not, please provide any data or evidence to support any claim of unreasonableness from a research perspective. 5. To reduce test burden for the assessment of some technologies for research purposes, the number of repeated trials per test condition is proposed to be less than or equal to seven based on our experience from past test procedure design work. Is this adequate, or should another number of repeated trials be performed for all technology/condition combinations to support an assessment of whether differences in the test results, for a given condition, are statistically significant? 6. Are there additional ADAS technologies NHTSA should be evaluating for research purposes? If so, please indicate what they are. 7. Are there existing, alternative test procedures for the ADAS technologies identified in this notice that NHTSA should consider? If so, please identify them and provide any comparisons/ contrasts that might be useful to the agency. Public Participation How can I be sure that my comments were received?
