Advancements in the 2019 Chevrolet Safety Package

Nothing can be of more importance than feeling safe when it comes to vehicles and traffic. It is safety that concerns everyone on the road, whether you’re driving or been passing by as a pedestrian. That is the reason why all the automotive brands, especially the leading ones like Chevrolet have revolutionized their way of building vehicles altogether. With the latest technological advancements, our outlook towards automotive industry is seeing a sea change. For this we must thank the dedicated people who brainstormed the most safest solutions to ensure road safety by categorically analyzing the feasible procedures. Chevrolet is one such brand where many such novel technologies emerged, integrated and have been implemented in almost every car that comes out of its shade.

To know more about these advancements that has taken place in the safety front of Chevrolet vehicles, we visited the Chevrolet dealer serving Saint Maries and from them we gathered the following details.

Front Pedestrian Automatic Braking

Every Chevrolet vehicle that is rolling on the roads today is equipped with a feature called front pedestrian automatic braking. This is a system that can directly detect a pedestrian ahead especially when the driver misses out because of some distraction or low lighting. The system starts throwing an alert to the driver when a  collision becomes imminent. This happens specially when the driver failed to apply the brakes. In this situation the system automatically starts applying the brakes on the behalf of the driver in order to slow down the vehicle or when necessary bring the vehicle to a complete stop. This in turn first help in avoiding the collision and n case it becomes unavoidable, reduces the severity of the collision impact. 

Adaptive Cruise Control

This is a feature that uses a forward-looking camera in order to enhance the effect of regular cruise control. With this system the cruise control speed gets automatically adapted with the driving situations to maintain a gap between the vehicle driven and the vehicles driving ahead. The system can detect all the vehicles around the concerned one and automatically maintains a healthy distance from them relieving the driver from the arduous task to frequently apply brake and accelerator, especially when there is heavy traffic.

Rear and Surround Vision Camera

The entire set of these safety features are based on several sensors, radars and cameras. Among these the rear and surround vision cameras play the most vital role in capturing the scenario around the car driven and inform the driver by relaying them through the infotainment screen.

These cameras alert the driver about any object, obstacle, other vehicle, pedestrian, children or pedestrians coming near the car, when it is already moving. With the help of these cameras, the driver gets a bird’s eye view of the entire driving scenario, especially near the blind spot zone where the driver’s eye cannot reach.

As we were explained at the Saint Maries Chevrolet dealer, that it is with the help of these devices that the latest Chevrolet vehicles are equipped with advanced safety features like Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Side Blind Zone Alert, Forward Collision Alert, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and many more.
