EDITORIAL: New regulations to increase global demand for advanced emergency braking systems

Technology Trends

Mandatory fitment requirement in EU and Japan along with voluntary commitment by automakers in the United States to equip all light vehicles with AEB is expected to drive demand for the product significantly from 2023

Two key regulatory developments last month are expected to significantly increase the demand for advanced emergency braking system (AEB), also known as automatic emergency braking, in some markets. First, 40 countries, including the European Union (EU) and Japan, agreed on a draft United Nations Regulation that seeks to make AEB mandatory in new cars and light commercial vehicles from 2020; EU will implement the regulation from 2022. The regulation will impose harmonized requirements for AEB at speeds up to 60 kilometers per hour (kph).
