Default IIHS Study Shows Backup Auto-Braking Can Save You Thousands In Repairs

A new test will become part of the IIHS test protocol. Here’s how this technology can help you.

The Insurance Institute For Highway Safety (IIHS) has created a new test protocol that evaluates the effectiveness of systems that prevent back-up crashes. In its first round of testing the results were impressive. David Zuby said that “All six vehicles do a good job of helping drivers avoid backing crashes.”

The technology works using sensors that can detect an object in the path of a vehicle backing up. Unlike alarm systems, these new systems can intervene and will stop the backing vehicle from hitting an object or vehicle that is behind them. They also work on angles. Many times, when a vehicle is backing up, it is also turning. For example, when exiting a parking space and preparing to then drive down an aisle in a lot. The systems can detect the impending contact between the backing vehicle and the stationary object and stop them from hitting one another.
