In modern cars, there is no dearth of options for various driver-assistance systems, which according to the manufacturers can make life behind the wheel safer and more relaxing.
But the systems don't always work and is far from 100 percent reliable,' shows a new test, which the american automobile association the American Automobile Association (AAA) is behind.
It writes Reuters.
Researchers at the AAA found in the study of systems registered interference, to the beat from approximately each 13. km, as well as met situations in traffic, as they were not programmed to handle.
This can potentially create dangerous situations, if drivers rely too much on the systems, and fail to be aware of traffic, sounds from the researchers in the AAA study.
- AAA has several times found, that the active kørselsassistenter not working consistently, especially in real-world scenarios, says Greg Brennon, as is the AAAs director of automotive and industrirelationer, in a press release.

In the test, the researchers have studied the systems in a BMW X7, the Cadillac CT6, a Ford Edge, a Kia Telluride and a Subaru Outback. In particular, it has been shown that the so-called lane assist systems have been challenged.
the Systems ensure that the car stays within the lane you are in until it flashes to one side or the other. Lane assist systems function according to test well when you are on a closed test facility where vejstriberne is clear, so the cars can easily read them.
in turn, however, it is not quite as easy in the real world. Here subscribed vejbaneassisterne for 73 percent of all errors or irregularities, showed the test.
AAA urges automakers to improve the systems, if not they should risk that consumers lose confidence in the car increased automation.
