Active Safety is the general name for automotive safety systems that prevent accidents or mitigate the severity of the accident through the active use of electronic sensors, braking systems and steering systems. Active safety senses when the vehicle is beginning to loose control with respect to the intended direction of the driver or if the vehicle is failing to keep a safe stopping distance and takes action to warn, prevent or mitigate the potential issue before the driver realizes the issue is occurring. Examples of this technology are Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Automatic Cruise Control (ACC), Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB), Crash Avoidance (CA), Lane Keeping / Guidance (LK), Night Vision, Pedestrian Protection and Automatic Braking Systems (ABS).
