7 Major Vehicle Safety Features You Cannot Do Without

Remember the times when a car's safety features consisted of anti-lock brakes, some airbags, 3-point seat belts and traction control, these times are long gone. Nowadays, most shoppers will not let go of their hard-earned money, unless most of the
latest security features are built into their new car.
Here are the 7 major vehicle safety features you cannot do without

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) is a brilliant structure of cruise control that automatically slows down and accelerates to keep the pace of the car in front of you. The driver sets the maximum speed, as with the cruise control, then a radar sensor observes the traffic ahead, is fixed to the car in a lane and tells the car to stay at 2, 3 or 4 seconds behind the person's car in front. ACC now almost always combines with a pre-crash system that alerts you and often starts to slow down.

Lane Keeping Assist 

These are actually two different systems, but for the sake of argumentation, we will put them under the one banner here because they both work to keep you on track. When you leave the lane, a warning sounds or you hear a hum on your seat or steering wheel to indicate that you are crossing white lines or accidentally leaving the lane. In the meantime, Lane Keep gently steers you back onto your lane as you drift out of it. If the lines are weak or the system has problems detecting lines, the system can be turned off.

Blind Spot Detection

Think of driver education as being asked to look over your shoulder and constantly see with the mirrors what was behind you and in your blind spot. Blind Spot Detection detects what you may have missed and also alerts you when vehicles approach from behind, with small orange or yellow lights in your exterior mirrors.

Backup camera

Rear view cameras have two main purposes; First, to give the driver a clear view of the vehicle when reversing, and second, to protect children and animals from accidental over-run. These cameras usually use wide-angle lenses to provide a 180-degree rear view.

Automatic emergency braking systems

Automatic emergency braking systems (AEB) detect imminent impact with another vehicle to prevent or mitigate the impact. These systems warn the driver first to take corrective action to avoid the crash. If the driver's response is insufficient to prevent the crash, the AEB system may automatically apply the brakes to prevent or reduce the severity of a crash.

Safety Exit Assist

As evidenced by the recently unveiled Hyundai Sante Fe SUV, the Safety Exit Assist temporarily prevents children from opening the back doors as vehicles and bicycles approach from behind. It is an extension of the Blind Spot Monitor and can be one of the most requested features for parents of young children

Face recognition software

The face recognition software constantly measures the driver's attention and warns the driver when he sees you are not paying attention. Other automakers will also follow in the coming years until this technology, such as ABS, is standard equipment. These warnings are at least temporarily heard as buzzer, which alerts you. However, in the near future we can expect more proactive systems that will make parts of your seat vibrate.
