Hyundai achieves AEB commitment ahead of schedule

Hyundai achieves Automatic Emergency Braking commitment ahead of schedule
During the past year, 96% of the Hyundai vehicles produced for sale in the U.S. offered Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) as standard equipment, meeting a voluntary industry commitment two years in advance of the deadline.

In 2016, Hyundai joined the industry, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) in committing to make AEB standard on virtually all light-duty vehicles by September 1, 2022. IIHS estimates that this commitment will prevent 42,000 crashes and 20,000 injuries by 2025, and that front crash prevention systems with both forward collision warning and automatic braking reduce rear-end crashes by half.

Hyundai’s Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist uses a camera and/or radar to look for vehicles in the road ahead and warn drivers of a potential collision. If the system determines a collision is imminent, it sounds an alarm and flashes a visual alert. And depending on the circumstances, it will also apply the brakes to avoid impact or minimize damage.
