Automakers Report Progress With AEB
Dec. 18, 2020—The U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has released its reports automaker progress in manufacturing passenger vehicles with low-speed automatic emergency braking (AEB) systems, according to a press release.
The efforts of the automakers are voluntary and part of a collaboration with the NHTSA to equip almost all new passenger vehicles with low-speed AEB, including forward collision warning, by August 31, 2023.
According to the report, 10 automakers (Audi, BMW, Hyundai, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Subaru, Tesla, Toyota, Volkswagen, and Volvo) have already installed AEB in all new passenger vehicles.
Another four manufacturers, including Ford, Honda, Kia and Nissan, have equipped more than 75 percent of their new passenger vehicles with AEB.
The NHTSA estimates the collaboration could help to make the AEB system standard three years faster than could have been achieved through the regulatory process.
