Automakers Developing Tech That Could Save Pedestrians' Lives
Vehicle systems that detect pedestrians are becoming increasingly common. Euro NCAP is going to start taking into account a car’s ability to avoid pedestrian injuries when calculating their ratings, giving automakers an added incentive to install such detection technology. Continental’s tech utilizes a camera to prevent collisions, Volvo uses cameras and infrared sensors, and General Motors is developing a technology that would allow a car to communicate directly with a pedestrian’s smartphone.
