The Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers, the trade group representing the Big Three Detroit automakers, Volkswagen AG, Toyota Motor Corp., and others, said that it will work with NHTSA on the proposal.

The NHTSA is also seeking comments on other possible additions to the NCAP, including:

  • blind spot detection (BSD) technology
  • advanced frontal lighting for enhanced nighttime visibility
  • lane departure prevention or automatic lane-keeping technologies
  • crash imminent braking (CIB) and Dynamic Brake Support (DBS) technologies

View the proposed rules in the Federal Register Online via the Government Printing Office here. Consumers who wish to comment online should cite federal Docket No. NHTSA-2012-0180.
