New European Cars Will Require Autonomous Emergency Braking

Safety when driving is always an important issue to consider when on the roads, and is why the EU have stepped in and passed a new regulation that will require all new cars to have autonomous emergency braking of AEB by November next year

If you’re not sure what AEB is, it uses radar, laser or video technology to look for impending collisions, if it finds one it will begin the press down on the brakes, helping to reduce the amount of front-end impacts whilst on road.

The system will also look for pedestrians in the road and apply the brakes before impact, and according to a recent study it reduces the amount of accidents by 27%, which is around 8,000 deaths prevented and between £3.9 and £6.3 billion saved a year.
