The multitude of features included in general advanced driver-assistance systems, such as lane-change assist, blind-spot detection, and adaptive cruise control, are all important when it comes to overall safety but the autonomous emergency braking feature is the one that has a proven track record of saving lives. This is according to an IIHS study.
Conducted in 2017, the study revealed that low-speed autonomous emergency braking, forward collision warning, and standard autonomous emergency braking reduced rear-end collisions with injuries by 20, 45, and 56 percent, respectively. It went on to confirm that front collision warning and autonomous emergency braking combined resulted in a crash reduction of 20 percent.
