It is certain that there are many advantages by using the Automatic Braking System. But the question is, IS THE SYSTEM RELIABLE ?????? the whole circuit isbuilt up by electrical and electronic parts, if any one part fails then it will lead to a very dangerous situation like an accident. Where as then motive of launching a Automatic Braking System is to reduce accidents which are cause by Human negligence.
It obviously remains to be a question whether an Automatic Braking System is a right replacement for a manual braking system. I certainly would suggest that the vehicle should be incorporated with both Automatic Braking System and a manual braking system so that even if the Automatic Braking System fails he ll have an option of using manual braking system and can rectify the fault in the Automatic Braking System as soon as he can. I feel it would be wise to use the Automatic Braking System in the presence of a manual braking system so that we ll be able to study the braking system and can understand why the system is failing(if at all it fails!).
