Largest study by government-vehicle manufacturer partnership details how combination of technologies lowers real-world crash rates. Partnership welcomes Ford.
The Partnership for Analytics Research in Traffic Safety (PARTS) released results of the largest government-automaker study to date about the real-world effectiveness of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) in passenger vehicles.
The study shows that vehicles equipped with forward collision warning (FCW) and automatic emergency braking (AEB) reduced front-to-rear crashes by about half.
