A lot of vehicles are being made currently that have automatic braking systems installed that are designed to prevent accidents. On the surface this sounds like a great idea, the problem is that these braking systems aren’t entirely accurate yet. They still are prone to errors such as not recognizing another vehicle or person. The systems tend to work better in the day rather than the night, most likely because of the visibility issues the darkness causes. While these systems can save lives, there are still improvements that are needed.
- Automatic braking systems are becoming more and more popular with vehicles to help them avoid accidents.
- According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, there is still much room for improvement in these vehicles and they aren’t entirely safe.
- The braking systems are not always capable of detecting another vehicle or person.
“Vigilance is especially prudent at night when these systems perform poorly.”
