Automated emergency braking systems prevent crashes and diminish the severity of auto accidents that do occur. Automated emergency braking systems anticipate crashes and instinctively apply the vehicles braking systems when the driver fails to react appropriately. Automated emergency braking systems rely on sensors such as radar, cameras or lasers to detect detect possible vehicle crashes and apply the brakes.
In 2022, we can anticipate widespread implementation of automated emergency braking systems across the United States auto market. Twenty automobile producers that constitute 99 percent of the automobile market in the United States have committed to marking automated emergency braking systems standard on new automobiles. The United State Department of Transporting and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety made this announcement on March 17, 2016.
This is a historic move within the United States automobile market. The manufacturers involved in the adoption of the automated emergency braking system technology include Audi, BMW, FCA US LLC, Ford, General Motors, Honda, Hyundai, Jaguar Land Rover, Kia, Maserati, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mitsubishi Motors, Nissan, Porsche, Subaru, Tesla Motors Inc., Toyota, Volkswagen and Volvo Car USA.
The means by which this technology will be implemented by auto manufacturers will be quicker than normal. Because the manufacturers are implementing the technology voluntarily, the regulatory rulemaking process will be avoided, and there will not be unnecessary delays there.
The adoption and implementation of automated emergency braking system is projected to prevent 28,000 crashes and 12,000 injuries in the United States.
