Forward Collisions Warning (FCW) Systems

Recently available in the economy vehicle market, forward collision waning systems are designed to warn drivers if they are about to hit an object on the road ahead. These systems use audible, visual, and haptic warnings to communicate the danger of an impending collision. Some systems will also apply the brakes if the driver does not respond to the alarm. Due perhaps to their relative newness, FCW systems differ widely across manufacturers, in terms of what warnings are issued, whether autonomous braking is available, and what objects are detectable.
