Safety Features Essential for Your Car

05 May , 2019

Remember the days when safety features on a car was limited to anti-lock braking system (Abs), two airbags, 3-point seatbelts and traction control? Those days are just a part of history now. In the world full of technology advancement most buyers won’t compromise their hard earned money without getting latest safety option features. 
So, what are the 5 main features your car needs to have?
1) Blind Spot Detection
When you were in driving school, you were told to look over your shoulder and incessantly use your mirrors to see what was behind you and in your blind spot. The blind spot detection is a vehicle-based sensor device that detects other vehicles located to the driver’s side and rear. Nowadays, a safe vehicles comes with blind spot detection system which gives warnings in visual, audible, vibrating, or tactile. With this feature, you don’t need to apply old school method of looking over shoulders.
2) Rear View
As found in the latest sub compact SUV Tata Nexon, rear-view cameras have two main purposes – firstly, to give the driver a clear view of what’s behind the vehicle when reversing and secondly, to protect children and animals from being accidentally hit or run over. These cameras typically use wide-angle lenses to give up to 180-degree backward views.
3) Antilock Breaking System (ABS) with Electronic brakeforce distribution (EBD)
An EBD is a subsystem of the abs and its function is to control the effective adhesion utilization by the rear wheels. The Antilock brake force system releases pressure in different brake lines at the time of heavy braking to prevent locking-up. For example, if the wheels of a vehicle are on snow as well as asphalt then in case of emergency braking the ABS will monitor the speeds and eventually the EBD system will release less pressure for wheels on snow and more pressure for wheels on asphalt to prevent wheel lock-up.
4)  Isofix for child seat
What is the safest way to travel with your new born, a toddler, or even a 4-year old in a car?  In Nepal, it's a common sight to watch parents transport these little ones either on the lap or in their arms. We've also noticed a few people put a toddler on the front seat in an airbag equipped car. Now, imagine if the car was to meet with an accident. 
Isofix, essentially, is a standardized international child seat fitting system. In other words, it is the international standard for attachment points for child safety seats in cars. It is made compulsory in all new cars sold in the western countries.
5) Collision Avoidance System
The collision avoidance system, also known as a collision mitigating system, is an automobile safety system designed to prevent or reduce the severity of a collision. It uses radar (all-weather) and sometimes laser and camera employing image recognition to detect an imminent crash. GPS sensors can detect fixed dangers such as approaching stop signs through a location database. Once an impending collision is detected, these systems provide a warning to the driver. Cars with collision avoidance may also be equipped with adaptive cruise control, using the same forward-looking sensors.
