Aeb Voluntary Agreement

In early September, the U.S. Department of Transportation`s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) announced that 10 vehicle manufacturers had agreed to make Automatic Emergency Braking Systems (AEB) a standard prince on cars sold in the United States in the relatively near future. The announcement was notable not only because of its impact on vehicle safety, but also because it included a voluntary obligation to introduce a new safety technology standard without a regulatory mandate. NHTSA estimates that the agreement will make the AEB standard for new cars three years faster than could be achieved under the formal regulatory process. During these three years, according to IIHS estimates, 28,000 accidents and 12,000 injuries will be avoided. Each vehicle in the four car manufacturers is equipped with AEB. IIHS data show that during the last reference period, this equates to more than 9 million additional cars with AEB, 30% more than the previous year. However, this voluntary objective does not mean that the function is part of standard equipment. More and more automakers are moving in this direction, but “offered” is different from the norm.

In 2016, Audi, BMW, FCA, Ford, General Motors, Honda, Hyundai, Jaguar Land Rover, Kia, Maserati, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Porsche, Subaru, Tesla, Toyota, Volkswagen and Volvo were among the 20 automakers that signed the contract. AEB systems help reduce the severity of crashes or completely prevent falls by applying the brakes in impending pre-end collision scenarios. These systems use sensors on the vehicle, such as radars, cameras and lasers, to detect an imminent risk of a crash, warn the driver and even use the brakes if the driver does not intervene sufficiently. At the time of the agreement, NHTSA estimated that the agreement would make the AEB standard for new cars three years faster than could be achieved by the formal regulatory process. April 10, 2020 – Four years after an initial voluntary commitment to increase automatic emergency braking (AEB) in cars, four automakers have reached the agreement with other advances. The Institute of Road Safety Insurance examined each automaker last month and found that four automakers met the criteria two years earlier: Audi, Volvo, Mercedes-Benz and Tesla. The latter two companies met the target three years earlier last year. In the case of the AEB, NHTSA opted for a voluntary commitment by automakers to equip vehicles with performance-standard AEB systems, combined with NCAP`s consumer selection information.
