Cars of the future will be safer
According to a study by the DGT (General Traffic Directorate), up to 57% of road traffic accidents could be avoided if vehicles were fitted with the new driver assistance systems known as ADAS, Advance Driver Assistance Systems.
Along these very lines the European Commission has published the third mobility pack which includes a revision of the general regulations on vehicles in terms of mandatory safety systems.
To help understand these new technologies, Fundación MAPFRE have prepared a number of sheets explaining what they consist of in further detail, what their main components are, the type of road accidents for which they are effective, the percentage of relevant accidents they could avoid, and an estimated final cost for users.
Some of these ASAS analyzed in the study are Autonomous Emergency Braking, la Blind Spot Monitoring or the Fatigue Detection System, among others.
