The AAA (American Automobile Association) experts were not satisfied with the operation of modern emergency braking systems. During the study, experts found out that beyond the cases that the automaker himself checked and described, such electronic assistants work poorly or become useless altogether.
To check the safety of such systems, the experts selected four brands of cars for testing – Ford, Honda, Chevrolet, and Toyota.
Most often, electronics began to “float” when passing intersections. AAA specialists checked the operation of the system under two common scenarios that can lead to an accident.
In the first case, the second car adheres to a transverse course, in the second – during a left turn at the intersection.
“The risk of getting into an accident in such situations is 100%, experts say.”
The electronic assistant did not warn the driver about the danger and did not slow down the car. As a result, electronics could not prevent an accident.
