Best Ten Auto Safety Features For Teens & New Drivers

If you’ve got a new or teen driver, then you undoubtedly have inquiries regarding the top automotive safety innovations. Don’t feel like you’re alone. Your priceless baby has reached driving age and their world is about to get a lot bigger and quite possibly more dangerous. However before you put your hard-earned cash on a new army tank for your teen, we’ve got some terrific news. There are some new safety features available in most cars that are ideal for your teen or new driver. So buckle up, and join us for a tour of the ten best safety features in today’s cars.

What Are Today’s Top Ten Safety Advancements In Cars

Vehicle safety tech is as old as the invention of the automobile itself and a lot of those very early innovations are still with us, albeit in a far more advanced version. But you’re not here to read about developments in seatbelts. You need information about the best safety innovations in 21st-century cars and we’ve got them for you:

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)

The safest vehicles are cars or trucks with the most advanced technology. One of the most advanced safety systems offered is Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC). ACC uses state-of-the-art radar sensors that keep your vehicle at a risk-free distance from cars in front of you and your passengers. Here is how the system works:

  • The driver sets the cruise control maximum speed.
  • The ACC radar system keeps pace with the vehicles in front of you.
  • When sensing an imminent accident, the ACC will use the car’s AEB system (see the next safety feature) to slow or stop the car.

AEB: Automatic Emergency Braking

Driving while distracted is a bigger issue today. This is largely due to personal device use while driving, particularly with teenage drivers. AEB systems are specifically designed to prevent a collision before it happens. In the event of an unavoidable impact, the AEB system will:

  • Alert the driver with an audible alarm – some systems will also use vibrating steering wheels and seats, as well.
  • If the driver doesn’t apply the brake promptly enough to avoid a collision, the AEB system will engage the brakes automatically to help stop or minimize the seriousness of a forward collision.
  • In the event the driver requires further stopping help, the following safety feature kicks in.

Crash Imminent Braking (CIB)/Dynamic Brake Support (DBS)

More automotive makers are including additional automated braking systems to assist drivers in avoiding or severely minimizing the intensity of an accident. The inclusion of a CIB/DBS system helps the driver by:

  • Automatically applying brake pressure in the event that the car senses the driver’s braking pressure is insufficient to stop the car prior to a collision.
  • In the event that the driver fails to use the brakes at all, the CIB system kicks in to automatically apply the brakes to minimize the damages or prevent of an accident.

Adaptive Headlights

With these unbelievable headlights, dark corners on poorly lit roadways are a distant memory. Connected to the steering system, the headlights turn in the very same direction the steering wheel is turning in order to brighten the area the car, truck, or SUV is turning into. This innovation is incredibly helpful in rural areas with limited or no outside illumination.

Forward Collision Warning

Distracted driving is becoming less of a problem thanks to this safety feature. Video cameras, radar, and even lasers are masterfully used to alert drivers when vehicles in front of them are getting too close to the front of your vehicle. Throw in an automatic emergency braking system and you can relax when your teen driver is on the road.

Blind Spot Detection

Speaking of keeping your eyes on the road, that annoying blind spot has finally been permanently addressed thanks to this safety feature. Video cameras and\or lasers keep an eye out in areas on your vehicle that many drivers are notable to. A warning alert makes sure you know about another vehicle’s proximity before you change lanes.

Lane Keeping System (LKS)/Lane Departure Warning (LDW)

Even more excellent news for distracted drivers. Lasers and video cameras are also used to watch the lane markings on the typical highway. When the system detects the vehicle has started moving out of its lane, it will inform the driver with lights and alarms, a vibrating steering wheel, and even a vibrating seat.

Rear-View Camera

Not to be confused with back-up cameras, the distinction between these 2 awesome advancements is stark. While back-up cameras frequently have a limited field of view, rear view cameras usually utilize wide-angle lenses to provide the driver a much broader view of who or what is behind them.

Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)

As the name indicates, your vehicle’s TPMS sensors keep track of the air pressure in allfour tires and informs the driver with dashboard lights and even alarms should the tire pressure get to critical levels.

Facial Recognition Software

Finally, we have one of the most recent additions to our vehicle safety suites. Thanks to innovations in face recognition technology, cars, truck, and SUVs are starting to add this tech to keep track of driver alertness. Once calibrated to the driver’s unique physical attributes, the software can spot slight alterations in driver attention levels. The system will then notify the driver with alarms and dashboard lights. This being a brand-new innovation, drivers can expect advanced informing actions like vibrating seats and steering wheels.
