In three years in Europe will ban cars without electronic security systemsMay 18, 2018
According to the decision of the European Commission, by 2021 the list of standard equipment of all cars should include 11 electronic security systems. Among them: a system of autonomous emergency braking and hold in the band, a rear-view camera, as well as a driver’s status monitoring function. This is reported by AutoExpress.
In addition to these systems, all new models entering the European market are proposed to be equipped with an “intelligent speed limiter”. Working together with the recognition of traffic signs, it will automatically set the maximum vehicle speed, depending on the current restriction.
Also mandatory will be an alcoholic “lock”, systems for collecting and storing telematic data, improved seat belts and various solutions for protecting pedestrians.
According to experts, installing all 11 security systems will allow for 10 years to save 7,300 lives and prevent 38,900 serious injuries. This will be part of the Vision Zero project, whose goal is to reduce to zero the number of road deaths by 2050.
Since May 1 of the current year, rear-view cameras have become mandatory in the USA. Also considered is the possibility to include in the list of mandatory autonomous braking systems, warnings about interference in blind areas and departure from the lane.
