The Evolution Of Car Safety Features: From Seat Belts To Autonomous Tech




Slide Content: Introduction Welcome to 'The Evolution of Car Safety Features: From Seat Belts to Autonomous Tech.' Join us as we journey through the remarkable advances in automotive safety. 2


Slide Content: Seat Belts In the 1950s, seat belts became the first widely adopted safety feature, reducing the risk of ejection during accidents and saving countless lives. 3


Slide Content: Airbags The 1970s saw the introduction of airbags, providing an additional layer of protection during crashes and further enhancing passenger safety in vehicles. 4


Slide Content: Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) The 1980s brought about the Anti-lock Braking System, preventing wheels from locking up during sudden braking, improving steering control, and reducing accidents. 5


Slide Content: Electronic Stability Control (ESC) ESC, introduced in the 1990s, automatically applies brakes to individual wheels, helping drivers maintain control during skids or loss of traction. 6


Slide Content: Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) ACC, emerging in the early 2000s, allows cars to maintain a safe distance from the vehicle ahead by automatically adjusting speed, reducing the risk of rear-end collisions. 7


Slide Content: Lane Departure Warning (LDW) LDW, introduced in the mid-2000s, alerts drivers when they unintentionally drift out of their lanes, preventing potential accidents caused by driver distraction or drowsiness. 8


Slide Content: Blind Spot Detection (BSD) BSD systems, becoming popular in recent years, use sensors to detect vehicles in blind spots, providing visual or audible alerts to help drivers avoid dangerous lane changes. 9


Slide Content: Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) AEB, a groundbreaking technology, uses cameras and sensors to detect potential collisions and automatically applies brakes to prevent accidents or reduce their severity. 10
