Of the lane, sometimes these systems
Use subtle braking.

On the car company.

Monitors your blind spots and alerts you
To the presence of other cars.

Lights will flash or the car will provide
An audible warning.

Often render them a bit redundant.

Detects when a driver has initiated a panic stop
And provides full anti-lock brake stopping power.

For stopped vehicles and alerts the driver
Using warning lights and noises.

Pedestrians, cyclists, or animals.



6. Automatic emergency braking
Should the driver not heed the audio and visual
Forward collision warnings, the car can
Apply the brakes automatically.

Speeds at which the system operates depend on
The car or version of the system.
