Advanced safety technologies have an enormous potential to enhance safety and save lives. NHTSA is using all of its available tools to accelerate the deployment of technologies that can eliminate 94 percent of fatal crashes involving human error. Today, many new vehicles offer Automatic Emergency Braking, which can sense danger ahead and apply the brakes to prevent crashes. In the not-too-distant future, automated vehicle technologies will use on-board sensors, GPS, cameras, and telecommunications to “see” the world around them and help us drive safely through it.
