  • Another problem that may be encountered with these systems is that of driver training. A driver may not fully understand how his/her ­collision warning/automatic braking system is supposed to operate, what it can/can’t do, and what they should/shouldn’t do in an emergency situation.

  • Automatic braking systems use cameras, radar and other sensors to see objects that are in the way, and slow or stop a vehicle if the driver doesn't react.

    The same factors that affect conventional brakes still apply to automatic braking systems. The pads and rotors need to be in good condition, the brake lines and hydraulics need to be leak-free, and the control electronics (wheel speed sensors, brake pedal switch, ABS solenoids, pump and module) all needs to be functioning perfectly. Something as simple as a misadjusted brake pedal switch may upset the operation of the system.

  • Twenty automakers have just committed to making automatic emergency braking systems standard in the coming years. Consumer Reports evaluated these safety systems and found they do have the potential to be important lifesavers. (KGO-TV)

Automatic Braking System | MotorWeek

Even though each car manufacturer has its own technology when it comes to automatic braking systems, they all use sensory input as a starting point. Depending on the manufacturer, a system uses sensors such as laser, radar, or even video data, to determine if there are any objects in front of the vehicle. For example, the system monitors traffic in front of the vehicle and assesses the possibility of a collision.
