Automatic Emergency Braking Becomes Standard
Over 99% of the U.S auto makers have agreed to make automatic emergency braking (AEB) a standard feature on virtually all new cars by September 1, 2022. The consensus is this will make the technology standard in new cars three years earlier than going through the formal regulatory process. During those three years it is estimated 28,000 crashes and 12,000 injuries could be prevented, according to Insurance Institute for Highway Safety estimates.
