Come 2014 and Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) will become mandatory for every car on sale in Europe to be eligible for a 5 star rating at Euro NCAP crash tests. The organization feels that the use of this system will reduce the chances of front-end impacts and pedestrian injuries. Philippe Jean of the European Commission recently made an announcement that all commercial vehicles must be equipped with AEB by November 2013. A study from European Commission shows that AEB-equipped vehicles are less prone to traffic accidents by 27 per cent which translates into prevention of 8,000 deaths and savings of $6.05bn-$9.7bn every year.
