FMCSA Grants Exemption To SmartDrive Systems

WASHINGTON, D.C. (TruckingNewsNow.com) (Source: DOT) — The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) announces its decision to grant SmartDrive System, Inc.’s (SmartDrive) application for a limited 5-year exemption from 49 CFR 393.60(e)(1) to allow an Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) camera to be mounted lower in the windshield than is currently permitted.

The Agency has determined that the placement of the SmartDrive ADAS camera lower in the windshield area would not have an adverse impact on safety, and that adherence to the terms and conditions of the exemption would likely achieve a level of safety equivalent to or greater than the level of safety provided by the regulation.
