Collision-Avoidance System Prices Expected to Drop Soon

Collision warning system

- July 31, 2011

Sup­pli­ers say the retail price of a next-gen­er­a­tion col­li­sion-avoid­ance sys­tem could soon fall to about $500 which most car shop­pers would find afford­able as an option. The sys­tems use radar, infrared laser sen­sors or cam­eras to spot obsta­cles in the road ahead and warn the dri­ver. Some sys­tems will auto­mat­i­cal­ly apply the brakes if the dri­ver fails to respond.
