For most people nowadays, driving is a common activity. Technology has undergone significant modifications, resulting in an increase in speed. However, high speed contributes to traffic accidents. When the driver is not attentive, ordinary braking is insufficient to prevent accidents. The braking system must be improved further in order to brake a vehicle when the driver is unable to do so, which may necessitate the use of an automatic braking system. The vehicle may brake without the driver's assistance using this autonomous braking technology. An auto-mated braking system is an important aspect of car safety technology. It's a sophisticated sys-tem that's designed to avoid colliding with another vehicle or an obstacle of some sort. These systems use sensors like radar, video, infrared, and ultrasonic to scan for potential obstacles in front of the car and then use brake control to avoid a collision if the object is found.
