Several Nissan models will get this advanced safety feature as standard equipment

Nissan recently announced that it will make Automatic Emergency Braking standard on seven models for the 2018 model year. Seven of the Japanese automaker's models, including Rogue, Altima and Murano, will come with the AEB (Automatic Emergency Braking) standard, the company said. Manual-transmission and NISMO models are excluded, as also are select Armada models.

AEB uses radar technology to monitor a vehicle's proximity to the one ahead and warns the driver to reduce speed, helping avoid the severity of potential collisions.

The 20 automakers collectively represent more than 99 per cent of the U.S. market. In March 2016, 20 automakers made a commitment with federal regulators to make automated emergency braking a standard feature on U.S. vehicles by 1 September 2022.

In the year 2012, rear-end collisions killed 1,705 people and injured 547,000 in the United States. About 87 per cent of the deaths and injuries might have been prevented or lessened if vehicles had a collision avoidance system because they were linked to driver inattention, researchers found.

Volvo has already equipped their cars with automated emergency braking as a standard feature, and Toyota has vowed to put it in almost every Toyota and Lexus model sold in 2017.
