Government says it will begin work on a mandate to have advanced driver assist systems in all cars in the market by 2022.

By 2022, we will work on a mandate on bringing Advanced Driver Assist Systems (ADAS) in all cars

It remains to be seen now how manufacturers will bring this technology to lower segments and the impact it will have on pricing. How the quickly will the government will be able to build necessary infrastructure required for these system to work effectively, also remains to be seen.

While the actual utility of ADAS in India is debatable, I can confirm that a major OE supplier of the technologies used in adaptive cruise control, automatic braking, lane assist etc is constantly in touch with the manufacturers as well as the Government. Talks on technology transfer at India friendly rates too are in advanced stages.

I heard this from the horse's mouth a couple of months ago. But since the conversation happened in confidence, I cannot divulge more.

Introduction of such technologies shall pave for a disciplined traffic without any intervention from the law enforcement authorities. The public will get used to the technology (as we have gotten addicted to smart phones, google maps and online shopping faster than other western countries), the dependence will rise and will automatically bring in an mindset change.

On the backdrop of the first Global NCAP World Congress to be held in Delhi, the Ministry of Road, Transport and Highways (MoRTH) has announced that all new cars launched in India starting October 2018 will have to comply with the mandatory pedestrian safety features.
By October 2018, all new cars in India will to have pedestrian safety feature including new design of the bonnet to reduce impact on pedestrians during an accident.

ESC, AEB features could be made mandatory, by 2022-23.

“Vehicle safety cannot be confined to luxury vehicles only. By 2022 most of vehicle safety will be at par with global standards. ECS and AEB will be incorporated in new vehicles from 2022-23,” Abhay Damle, joint secretary, ministry of transport (MoRTH), said at the launch of ‘Stop The Crash’ campaign by Global New Car Assessment Programme (GNCAP).

It looks like these are counting variants, right? Because there's no way Ford has 20 (or multiples thereof) models in India.

Ford and Honda have it easy - they have a few variants where they need to put in 1-2 airbags, and they can reach 100% coverage. They ought to, there's no merit in being "almost there".

Good on VW and Toyota to have already hit that 100% mark.

And is Carlos Ghosn's statement about "not seeing" the reason Renault/Nissan are so low in this chart? Because airbags obscure vision? :-P

Salt Spray Test For Domestic Vehicles Under Consideration:


With the mission of making cars safer in India the road transport and highway ministry (MoRTH) is planning to mandate the salt spray test for the vehicles that are manufactured for the domestic market.

Quote:
Indian vehicle testing agency International Centre for Automotive Technology (ICAT) has proposed salt spray test for locally manufactured cars to determine corrosion resistance, a practice prevalent in overseas markets.
Quote:
The road transport and highways ministry, which wants to make it mandatory for automobile manufacturers to use 70% galvanised steel for car body panels—in order to make them safer
Quote:
automakers in India use only 30% galvanised steel for vehicles to be sold in the domestic market, which leads to faster rusting and reduces the car’s structural strength and stability. But the percentage of galvanised steel rises to 70% for the same model if it is for export, the note said, as quality control in foreign countries is far more stringent on corrosion parameters. The global average is 50%.

New safety norms kicks in this year.

APRIL 2019 :
ABS for two-wheelers -
Quote:
all new two-wheelers with an engine displacement over 125cc will have to be equipped with ABS by April 1, 2019. Smaller displacement models (with engines up to 125cc) need to have compulsory fitment of the combi-braking system (CBS). While the mandate was already applicable all new two-wheelers launched after April 1, 2018, it will extend to all existing models in the market starting April 2019.
ABS for four-wheelers :
Quote:
The mandatory fitment of ABS has become applicable for all new cars from April 2018 and will become mandatory for all cars on sale (including existing models) from April 2019
JULY 2019 : Cars will have to be equipped with a driver-side airbag, a speed warning system, a seatbelt reminder for driver and co-driver, and rear parking sensors as standard.

Quote:
The speed warning system is to beep an alert every 60sec above 80kph, and then continuously beep at speeds above 120kph. The system cannot be overridden or turned off and is designed to reduce over-speeding, which has been seen to be the cause of many past incidents
Manual override for central locking system : Cars with central locking will also require a manual override, by law. In transport vehicles, child locks will not be allowed, either.

OCTOBER 2019 :Crash test norms compliance

Quote:
More stringent requirements for full-frontal impact, offset-frontal impact and lateral/side impact have been in force on all cars launched after October 1, 2017. The requirements will expand in scope and will apply to all models on sale in India from October 1, 2019. Likewise, new norms for pedestrian safety (applicable for new models from October 1, 2018) will become applicable for all models from 2020
As per the new crash-test requirements, vehicles will be tested for full-frontal impact at 48kph, offset-frontal impact with fixed deformable barrier at 56kph and side impact with a mobile deformable barrier at 50kph.

Hello people.

If I am in the market to buy a new car, how do I assess their safety? Crash testing norms have been around for a while now, so where are the ratings? Or if they are available where can I look?

Thanks!

If the car has not been tested by GNCAP, then there is no sure method of assessment. You can refer to this post (Tata Nexon: Global NCAP’s first 5-Star Indian car) for a list of cars tested so far. Please do go through the thread where members have shared some useful information like this post. (Tata Nexon: Global NCAP’s first 5-Star Indian car)
Please note that crash testing norms are not yet implemented in India(expected to be implemented later this year). You could look at crash test results from Euro-ncap or other such sources but please note that they are only for cars sold in their respective countries and cannot be applied to models sold here (even if they seem to be the same). There are other parameters like bonnet weight, door thud and finger-ncap that are equivalent to our nimbu-mirchi (more of a psychological thing than factual).
