|7 Major Vehicle Safety Features You Cannot Do Without by Godspower35(m): 4:31pm On Oct 28|
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.
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 warns 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.

Yes they're good and its also good to have modern safety systems in ones car, but your points are flawed.
Why? Any good driver can do with out these added safety systems. The best safety for a car is driver's alertness, sober driving, quick anticipation and defensive driving. You can actually do without these added safety systems in today's world and you'd be totally fine.
In some cases, these added systems adds to the complexities of a modern car, causes distraction and also when invaded by black hackers, could compromise the safety and security of your car and cause crashes.
Also, some onboard sensors could go haywire during weather extremes, such as W220 Distronic Radar Cruise Control (A form of Automatic Cruise Controls) which was confused in foggy environment and couldn't avart crashes.
Do not also forget that some sensors on cars have not been fully adopted and mastered by these car companies and have their own inherent limitations and could prove dangerous and fatal. Examples are Google autonomous cars, Tesla autopilot etc.

Really wondering what I'll do with all these features on a Nigerian road. The only useful one is the blind spot detection. Lane keeping assist? Seriously? When you jam lagos traffic, two lane road becomes four in no time. Alarm to Beep taya.

Very valid points. The human component is still the best and most effective safety paraphernalia. Spoon-feeding drivers with these systems could make them lazy and careless, making the systems counterproductive.

nony43:If you refer to sunroofs/moonroofs, they're not safety features. They're convenience features. Imagine you in Miami, on a cool weekend at around 5pm, you open it and allow the nice air breeze into the car?
Lovely isn't it?
