Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) will be the norm in 2022

Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) will be the norm in 2022 -

National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and US Department of Transportation (USDOT ) recently announced that they have made an agreement with 20 automakers have AEB (automatic emergency braking) to be installed in all new vehicles manufactured by them in 2022 as part of the standard functionality. Currently, it is available for a fee of at least $ 1,000 to have it installed on the vehicle. Some examples of automakers that are included in the list are Audi, Ford, KIA, Mazda, Porsche and even Tesla.

AEB system will use sensors such as LIDAR, radar and cameras to predict a potential accident and warns the driver. If the driver does not react quickly enough, the car automatically applies the brakes to minimize the impact of the accident or to prevent the accident from happening.

This agreement will save about three-year process of bureaucracy and manufacturers that provide the system as part of their standard functions will be encouraged. IIHS predicts that nearly 28,000 accidents and 12,000 injuries can be avoided in three years with the AEB technology. NHTSA also announced that testing of the AEB system will be part of the 5-Star Rating Security Agency in 2018.

This is not the first time that NHTSA agree instead a formal regulatory process. In 2014, the agency requires that all new vehicles less than 10,000 pounds, which includes buses and trucks to be fitted with reversing cameras by May 2018. In addition to this, the 2012 model year vehicles are required having an electronic stability control as standard equipment.
