Car manufacturers working with standard automatic braking on officials

Car manufacturers working with standard automatic braking on officials -

car manufacturers such as Audi, BMW, Ford, General Motors, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Tesla, Toyota, Volkswagen and Volvo is working with the National Highway Traffic safety administration (NHTSA) and the insurance Institute for Highway safety (IIHS) to come out with details of the agreement and the implementation timetable for equipping all new vehicles with automatic emergency braking serial technology.

Mark Rosekind, NHTSA chief, said there will always be a regulatory requirement to maintain public safety. He also added that it is a new agreement and a new pact; So it is different from NCAP (New Car Assessment Program) and IIHS programs. Both programs will still continue to operate alongside the new program. All programs created to date were designed to save people's lives.

automatic emergency braking systems operate in such a way that it will apply the brakes automatically or either slow or stop the car if the driver does not react time. It is using sensors such as radar, cameras or lasers to detect a potential collision and try to avoid it.

According to IIHS, only 1 percent of 2015 model year vehicles include automatic braking as a standard feature while 26 percent included as an option. IIHS was founded by the insurance industry. The group said that the technology could reduce insurance claims for injuries up to 35 percent. In addition, the automatic braking system has been incorporated into its safety rating system for vehicles. In order to get the best score will be Top Safety Pick +, a vehicle must receive a rating or "upper" "advanced" for the prevention of accidents before and only vehicles equipped with automatic brakes can qualify for the feedback.

Eventhough NHTSA was slow to mandate manufacturers to accident prevention technology; the authority has taken steps to encourage wider adoption for automatic braking. However, the agreement could impose challenges on several other automakers such as Nissan, Honda, Fiat Chrysler, Hyundai, Kia and Subaru. Despite all this, the Department of Transportation and IIHS encourages all automakers to make the automatic braking technology on all cars as soon as possible.

vice president of General Motors, Jeff Boyer said that the two technologies are available on dozens of models 2016 model Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac. He added that there thirty-seven models with forward collision warning that represent more than 1 million vehicles on the road.

Analysts said it could take several years for autonomous braking to install in vehicles that automakers need to rethink the electrical and braking systems. There are several providers who are already working towards self-braking system as Continental AG, Robert Bosch GmbH, Delphi Automotive Plc, Denso Corp. and Autoliv Inc.
