From Wochit Business:
Nissan Motor Company said on Thursday it will make automatic emergency braking standard on an estimated one million vehicles sold in the United States for 2018 cars. AEB uses radar technology to monitor a vehicle's proximity to another car ahead. IT also warns the driver through audio and visual displays to reduce speed, helping avoid or reduce the severity of potential collisions. In 2012, rear-end collisions killed more than 17 hundred people in the United States. Researchers say about 87 percent of deaths and injuries might have been prevented or lessened if vehicles had a collision avoidance system.
