Automakers Compete to Add Standard Autobrake Ahead of Schedule

This article describes how a September 2022 deadline to voluntarily make automatic emergency braking (AEB) standard on nearly all new passenger vehicles has resulted in a competition among automakers to get the crash avoidance technology into their models as soon as possible. The author describes the progress of Toyota, Volvo, Mercedes-Benz, and BMW as they move toward standard collision avoidance technologies, including automatic emergency braking. The article also summarizes and includes links to related articles on research conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety on the benefits of crash avoidance technologies and front crash prevention ratings. One other section discusses the possible insurance benefits (cost reductions to consumers) of vehicles with these safety features. One figure lists the 22 automobile manufacturers who have joined the voluntary program.
