US unveils emergency braking deal with automakers


WASHINGTON, D.C.: US traffic safety authorities announced on Thursday (Friday in Manila) a voluntary deal with automakers to make automatic emergency braking a standard feature on new cars within the next seven years. The commitment by 20 automakers, representing more than 99 percent of the US auto market, will make the safety technology a standard feature on cars and light trucks no later than late 2022, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said. It will become standard on heavier trucks three years later.
