Advances in connected and automated technology allow vehicles to detect and respond to the surrounding environment, providing new opportunities for safety and mobility. Vehicle automation on the road today—such as adaptive cruise control, dynamic brake support, and automatic emergency braking—is already bringing safety benefits. Connected vehicles further improve vehicle safety with enhanced crash avoidance capabilities and the ability to communicate with other vehicles and the surrounding roadway. It will also help support the deployment of fully automated, self-driving vehicles.
Global Automakers' members are committed to exploring ways to improve safety on our roadways and believe connected and automated vehicles have the potential to save thousands of lives each year.
