In this video series from NHTSA, discover how these driver assistance technologies can contribute to safer roads: 

  • Automatic high beams switch from low to high beams depending on detected light and traffic. 

  • Blind spot intervention helps avoid a collision by applying the brakes or steering if the driver begins changing lanes where a vehicle is detected in the blind spot. 

  • Lane keeping assistance gently steers the vehicle back into your lane if it detects lane drifting. 

  • Rear automatic braking applies the brakes if a potential crash is detected while in reverse.
