UN ECE Regulation 10 Revision 6 lists the “Immunity related functions”. The list is not exhaustive and shall be adapted to the technical evolution of vehicle/technology.
ECE R10 Immunity Related Functions
|Functions related to the direct control of the vehicle||
(i) By degradation or change in: e.g. engine, gear, brake, suspension, active steering, speed limitation devices;
(ii) By affecting drivers position: e.g. seat or steering wheel positioning;
(iii) By affecting driver’s visibility: e.g. dipped beam, windscreen wiper, indirect vision systems, blind spot systems.
|Functions related to driver, passenger and other road user protection||E.g. airbag and safety restraint systems, emergency calling systems.|
|Functions which, when disturbed, cause confusion to the driver or other road users||
(i) Optical disturbances: incorrect operation of e.g. direction indicators, stop lamps, end outline marker lamps, rear position lamp, light bars for emergency system, wrong information from warning indicators, lamps or displays related to functions in subparagraphs (a) or (b) which might be observed in the direct view of the driver;
(ii) Acoustical disturbances: incorrect operation of e.g. anti-theft alarm, horn.
|Functions related to vehicle data bus functionality||By blocking data transmission on vehicle data bus-systems, which are used to transmit data, required to ensure the correct functioning of other immunity related functions.|
|Functions which when disturbed affect vehicle statutory data: e.g. tachograph, odometer||Not mentioned.|
|Function related to charging mode when coupled to the power grid||
(i) For vehicle test: by leading to unexpected vehicle motion;
(ii) For ESA test: by leading to an incorrect charging condition (e.g. over-current, over-voltage).
