True benefits of auto braking car tech finally revealed

Fitting autonomous emergency braking (AEB) leads to a 38 per cent reduction in real-world rear-end crashes, a new report from two crash bodies has revealed. Euro NCAP and ANCAP – the Australian equivalent – published the research which also showed that there is no significant difference between benefits in urban and rural crashes. It’s the first evidence of the genuine advantages of the safety tech and demonstrates widespread fitmentis needed to achieve the best results.

The figures relate to the low-speed AEB option which normally consists of an automatic brake function that operates effectively at speeds up to 50km/h (31mph). It’s estimated that 75 per cent of all accidents occur at lower speeds. Euro NCAP already only hands out a five-star score to cars fitted with AEB and from next year, the crash tests will include AEB systems that recognise pedestrians.
