Ford gives shopping trolleys AEB

Ford has been rolling out autonomous emergency braking across a wider range of its cars lately. The Ranger dual-cab ute now has it standard across the range, as does the Transit. Turns out, it's not just commercial vehicles getting the potentially life-saving tech. It's also shopping trolleys. Sort of... This is, obviously, a stunt from Ford of Europe designed to promote autonomous emergency braking in its cars. There's a sensor embedded in its base, designed to detect obstacles ahead.

BMW X1 gets 'no credit' in IIHS pedestrian AEB testing

The BMW X1 has completely flunked pedestrian autonomous emergency braking testing conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). So poor was its performance, the littlest BMW crossover was the only vehicle to not be rated in a test of 11 compact SUVs. The second-worst rated car was the Mitsubishi Outlander, while the Honda CR-V, Subaru Forester, Toyota RAV4 and Volvo XC40 took top ratings.
