Car Safety Tech: Regulators Launch Awareness Campaign

According to a series of news reports, many automakers have been making good use of semi-autonomous technologies. As consumers become more familiarized with the technologies, they also become more accustomed to the idea of fully automated vehicles. But to many safety advocates, these features should be more broadly in order to make sure that all vehicles receive a safety boost.

In order to help drivers to make better decisions as car consumers, the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has launched a safety awareness campaign that focuses on helping consumers to understand how semi-autonomous technologies work and how they are able to help save lives.

Some of the technologies the NHTSA is focusing on include forward collision warning and lane departure warning systems, as well as blind spot monitoring.

A few of these features, such as automatic emergency braking and adaptive cruise control, will become standard in all cars by 2022. According to the NHTSA, since these features may save your life some day, it’s important to understand how they function, so when the time comes for you to purchase a vehicle that is fitted with these technologies, you know exactly what to expect.

Until then, however, these features are not the only new things that have been making newer cars safer than ever. According to several reports, the NHTSA is working on a new standard for car-to-car communication technologies. If these systems are tested and the results are positive, the NHTSA hopes to see the technology being used nationwide, which could help to give drivers information on accidents ahead or other obstacles, helping them to avoid accidents.

While this technology is still new, safety advocates have already been discussing the importance of making sure that the car-to-car communication is widely used across the country.
