With the alarming rate at which Road Accidents are increasing, the need for subtle, yet powerful Safety Features in cars is more than ever before. Setting up the benchmark with safety features pertaining to safety airbags, hill hold assist etc.has not been able to make a very big difference. The introduction of ABS along with EBD (electronic brakeforce distribution) does make a difference but depends entirely on the skills (or folly) of the drivers alone.
Get into statistics and you will find that majority of the road accidents are caused due to the carelessness on the part of the driver. Hence, there ought to be a technology (other than autonomous driving) that can take over from the driver as and when the situation arises.
