Automatic braking is not as safe as one might think. Test results from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) stated that the system did not function properly in the dark.

This automatic braking system is used by car manufacturers to prevent their vehicles from hitting pedestrians. However, the United States (US) non-profit group found that 12 out of 23 cars of various types scored “basic” or failed to detect or slow down, Reuters quoted Tuesday ( 30.8.2022). .

This result is quite surprising. Because according to the IIHS, three-quarters of pedestrian deaths occur at night.

The IIHS will require vehicles from the 2023 model year to earn a “superior” or “advanced” nighttime pedestrian test rating, receiving a “Top Safety Pick+” rating from the organization.

For example, Nissan Motor Co’s 2022 Pathfinder was rated “excellent” while the Altima received “no credit” in the IIHS test.

“The latest IIHS test results are still being evaluated, including the difference in results in combination with the performance of equipped headlights,” Nissan said.

Meanwhile, according to Volkswagen, the vehicles used in IIHS testing only use radar. The company believes that other versions may perform better.

“We are confident that the next versions of Atlas, Atlas Cross Sport and Tiguan will perform even better as they combine camera and radar sensors and hopefully achieve advanced ratings,” the company said.

Toyota did not comment on the IIHS test method. But according to the company, the “no credit” Tacoma is not equipped with a system that can detect pedestrians at night.

The Toyota Highlander and Camry have more advanced pedestrian detection technology. The vehicle received the qualification “superior”.
