Security Vehicle In recent decades, it has evolved due to the integration of technologies that have allowed safer vehicles to be produced and less prone to serious accidents. The World Health Organization reports that about 1.35 million people die and 20 to 50 million are injured in traffic accidents every year. For this reason, the automotive industry has set important goals for itself in terms of safety; For example, the Honda brand aims to reduce traffic accidents by 50% by 2030 and eliminate them by 100% by 2050.
Among the most important and basic technologies in vehicle safety are ABS anti-lock braking system and airbags, basic technologies that should not be missed in any modern vehicle. Other important developments are electronic stability control, which helps to prevent skidding and loss of control in emergency situations, cameras that show on the center panel what cannot be seen through the passenger side mirror, thus avoiding blind spots, 360 ° cameras, etc.
Advanced driver assistance systems are increasingly present in modern vehicles and have significantly improved road safety. These include technologies such as adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, correction of the car’s steering while on the road, and a driver fatigue detection system.
In the future, V2V (Vehicle-to-Vehicle) technology will allow vehicles to exchange information about their position, speed and other factors in real-time to reduce accidents and improve traffic efficiency. Likewise, autonomous vehicle technology has the potential to significantly improve road safety in the world, as it eliminates the possibility of human error while driving.
Safety is a priority issue for the automotive industry, which is why automakers are busy integrating new technologies. But as a car lover, I hope traditional driving will not be completely replaced because driving is rewarding, exciting and challenging but road safety is essential and to enjoy it fully you need to drive responsibly and safely.
