Toyota and U.S. NHTSA sign a voluntary agreement 97% of new cars in the U.S. are equipped with AEB system

AEB (Automatic Emergency Braking) is an active safety technology for automobiles, which can effectively prevent rear-end collisions and collisions caused by drivers who do not pay attention to road conditions and fail to brake in time. It is of great significance to reduce the driving accident rate and casualties.

The role of AEB is supported by data. Research data shows that equipment with AEB can reduce the incidence of accidents by 27%, of which the reduction rate of rear-end collisions is 38%, and can significantly reduce accident casualties.

Therefore, all countries are paying more and more attention to the research and development and installation of the AEB system. At present, in the domestic market, it is common for vehicles equipped with L2 automatic assisted driving to provide the AEB function. However, in the US market, AEB has begun to become standard on Toyota's new cars.

Toyota announced on June 23, 2021 that the sales of cars equipped with Toyota Safety Sensor (TSS) and Lexus Safety System Plus (LSS+) in the North American market have exceeded 10 million.

This is mainly related to the agreement reached between Toyota Motor and the United States. Toyota signed a voluntary agreement with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in 2016, requiring more than 95% of OEM-manufactured vehicles to be equipped with automatic emergency braking (AEB).

In the fall of 2020, Toyota is far ahead, 97% of new cars in the United States are equipped with AEB. From early September 2019 to the end of August 2020, Toyota has manufactured more than 1.8 million AEB-equipped cars for the US market, more than any other car manufacturer.
