The recent Honda recall isn’t the only problem to surface with autonomous braking systems. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has started investigating complaints that the systems on 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokees can brake for no reason. The feature is an option on many high-end and even mainstream cars, and is standard equipment on only a few vehicles. There is definitely a move toward self-driving vehicles. Hopefully, this technology will result in reducing crashes and highway deaths. Clearly, the system can react faster than humans. The systems clearly have promise. The National Transportation Safety Board is urging that automatic warning and braking systems be made standard on all new cars and commercial trucks.
