Automatic Emergency Braking
When done right, automatic emergency braking (AEB) technology saves lives. It is one of the most significant breakthroughs in car safety technology in recent decades. Accordingly, the Center for Auto Safety has been fighting for this lifesaving technology to be made standard in all new vehicles since 2015. However, when automatic emergency braking goes wrong, it can be incredibly dangerous. Owners of 2017-19 Nissan Rogues, 2020-2021 Volkswagen Atlas/Atlas Cross Sports, Tesla Model 3s/Model Ys, Honda Accords and CR-Vs, and many more equipped with automatic emergency braking have been reporting unwanted stops. Therefore the Center advocates for AEB standards – so this potentially life-saving technology can work correctly and do the job it was meant to accomplish. The Center will continue to push for this technology to be made available to all American drivers, and for automakers to get it right.
