Aeb Voluntary Agreement
“The integration of all models into the agreement ensures that safety doesn`t just apply to those who can afford it.” NHTSA and IIHS are now asking other automakers to commit to making AEB systems standard equipment in their vehicles. According to reports, NHTSA is also in talks with the truck industry and is calling for AEB to become the standard equipment for new trucks. In October, the Board of Directors of the American Trucking Associations asked automakers to equip all new vehicles sold in the United States, including trucks, with AEB systems. According to reports, NHTSA is examining whether a voluntary or regulatory approach would accelerate the introduction of such systems into the truck market. At the time of the deal, NHTSA estimated that the deal would make the AEB standard for new cars three years faster than the formal regulatory process could achieve. Every year, car manufacturers report through a submission to the Docket Federal Register, making their advancement status a public registration. . . .
