When it comes to autonomous vehicles, safety comes first – and that's driving interest in autonomous braking  

By 2022, fatalities from motor vehicle accidents in Canada are projected to drop by more than 300 per year, largely due to automatic emergency braking (AEB), where onboard sensors scan the road ahead and can hit the brakes faster than a human driver can.

Other upcoming technologies like Vehicle-2-Vehicle and Vehicle-2-Infrastructure communications should further increase the effectiveness of AEB and other safety features.
