According to IIHS, systems with automatic braking reduce rear-end crashes by about 40 percent on average.

Vehicles equipped with automatic emergency braking will:

- Alert drivers of a dangerous situation using audio, visual, or haptic alarms (forward collision warning) 

- Automatically apply the vehicle brakes when an imminent collision is detected (crash imminent braking)

- Automatically increase braking if driver does initiate braking but with insufficient amount to avoid a collision (dynamic brake support)
