8000 lives could be saved with Autonomous Emergency Braking
Autonomous emergency braking (AEB) or advanced emergency braking system (AEBS) is an autonomous safety system, which uses sensors to monitor the proximity to other vehicles in front of them. These sensors can detect situations where the speed and distance between both vehicles indicate a forthcoming collision. In these situations, AEB can be automatically triggered to […]
82% of drivers think safety features should be standard
Safety experts at Thatcham Research are promoting the availability of important, low cost safety technology, like Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) across all cars, according to Autotrade.ie. The simplest form of AEB sensor could cost manufacturers as little as £40. More advanced AEB systems can cost up to £200. Thatcham Research outlines the fast progress in […]
