Addition of automatic emergency braking in Five-Star vehicle safety ratings from 2018 models
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) wants to make the streets safer. Owing to it, the administration is including automatic emergency braking as a recommended auto safety technology in its five-star safety ratings. The automatic emergency braking will be applicable in the 2018 model year.
“We are adding automatic emergency braking features to the 5-Star Rating System because crash-avoidance technologies can save lives and should be widely accessible. AEB can substantially enhance safety, especially with the number of distracted drivers on the road”, said Anthony Foxx, US transportation secretary.
Automatic emergency braking is a semi-autonomous system that makes vehicle to stop completely or reduces its speed before a rear-end crash takes place. It is considered that this technology will reduce such collisions that become reason for 1,700 lives on annual basis.
With the use of radar as well as camera sensors, the technology can automatically put in the brakes irrespective of the fact that river is aware or not. The technology is divided into two systems- crash imminent braking (CIB) and then dynamic brake system (DBS).
In the first one, CIB, brakes are applies when driver is not aware of rare-end collision that is about to happen. In the case of DBS, it ensures that vehicle uses proper brakes when the driver is not applying enough to avoid the collision.
Since 2011, the NHTSA is suggesting advanced safety technologies. It has also been recommending electronic stability control (ESC), lane departure warnings and forward collision warnings. In order to make people aware of advanced safety technologies, the NHTSA has created a website that also has a video of AEB technology.
