Automatic Emergency Braking: Top 5 Automobile Companies Leading the Race

With the alarming speed at which traffic accidents increase, the need for subtle and powerful safety features in cars is more than ever. The configuration of the reference point with safety features related to safety air bags, the assistance of retention on slopes, etc. It has not been able to make a big difference. The introduction of ABS along with EBD (electronic distribution of braking force) makes a difference, but it depends entirely on the skills (or madness) of the drivers alone.

Enter the statistics and you will find that most traffic accidents are caused due to lack of care on the part of the driver. Therefore, there must be a technology (other than autonomous driving) that can take over the driver as the situation arises.

The introduction of the very important AEB (automatic emergency braking) has filled the gap and can play the most important role if you want to stop traffic accidents. Generally speaking, AEB is composed of a complex mechanism that uses sensors and brake controls that are designed to replace drivers in situations where human reflexes do not react quickly.

In order to curb such unforeseen unforeseen circumstances, there are many car manufacturers that have been working with AEB on their cars with the main focus. Here are the top 5 car manufacturers that lead the way towards the addition of automatic emergency braking.

1. Hyundai

Hyundai has always focused on the production of family-centered cars, and the Hyundai Sonata is one of the best examples. In the 2018 version of the car, the previously available front collision warning has been taken a higher notch to improve the automatic stopping capabilities. There are more safety sensors in the block along with technologies related to emergency braking. These technologies include lane departure warning, blind spot detection, rear parking assistance and rear traffic alert.

2. Volkswagen

It can be said that Volkswagen is one of the most important names when it comes to passenger cars. The company presents itself as a tough competitor to the other automakers in the segment. The current generation of the Volkswagen Golf has some excellent safety features to help reduce the number of traffic accidents to some extent. It even voted with the prestigious North American car of the year award for 2016. The Volkswagen Golf hatchback has a new driver assistance package that has adaptive cruise control, frontal collision warning, emergency autonomous braking, blind spot sensor and Lane departure warning.

3. Chevrolet

The 2016 Chevrolet Malibu sedan is one of the most popular passenger cars in the United States market for all the good reasons. The car has some sophisticated security systems, such as the front pedestrian alert, which warns the driver if there is someone passing in front of the car or if a jaywalker is crossing the street. The car comes with several other safety and emergency braking features, such as the detection of blind spots and high-level emergency brakes that can cause the car to come to a complete stop in crisis situations.

4. Chrysler

The Chrysler 300 2016 has a number of additional features included. For example, its frontal collision warning works even at high speeds and its adaptive cruise control plus can apply the brakes in all scenarios, be it cruise control or during normal city driving. The Chrysler 300 also marked several boxes according to industry standards. The Blind Spot Alert Monitor, Lane Keeps Assistance and Lane Change Warning are some of the features you get in this car. But the best part of most cars manufactured by Chrysler is that these features are available even in rear-wheel drive.

5. Mazda


Often referred to as the zoom-zoom car brand, this automaker is one of the leaders when it comes to driving dynamics. The Mazda 6 2016 is no different than the reputation that the company has built for itself. The car has been given a crash prevention technology that is effective at all speeds, whether low, medium or even high. This medium-sized sedan is one of the most efficient cars because it has regenerative brakes. All thanks to the thei-ELOOP system, which recycles kinetic energy to power internal parts such as headlights, stereo and A / C. Needless to say, this increases the fuel economy of the Mazda 6 by a good margin.

There is more in the future!

With all the safety features and emergency braking systems that gradually make their way into the current generation of high-end passenger cars, the moment they will be the standard features in most cars is not that far away.

Engine performance and braking safety measures should be considered almost synonymous. But this is not so, many people think that there should be a certain legal step that would make the addition of such braking and safety systems mandatory or at least remind car manufacturers if they tend to deviate from the road.
