Sharpened “senses” smooth the way for the vehicle of tomorrow.
More and more vehicles are pushing their way onto the motorways: cars, vans and heavy goods vehicles. And even more cars are joining them in the acceleration lane. Merging, accelerating, braking – and then changing lanes. The journey is tiring and the distances between the vehicles are short – often too short. If someone then brakes, a rear-end collision can be hard to avoid. Because the drivers have to react in a split second. And they do not always do that. Humans are not machines.
Insufficient distance and therefore – if the worst comes to the worst – braking too late are some of the most common causes of accidents all over the world – both on motorways and on major or minor roads.
