Report Electric cars in General Boating Posted 12 hours ago · Edited 12 hours ago by magnetman I didn't see this thread before but surely electric cars are fitted with collision avoidance cameras linked to the brakes aren't they? My little petrol Suzuki Ignis (2018) has dual camera brake support and it will stop the car automatically if someone walks in front of it too close. It has an alarm once it picks up the object then the brakes deploy themselves to avoid a collision. It does actually work and if screen is dirty it switches off with a warning on dash that it is not functioning. It's done it's job once or twice in my 10,000 mile ownership. The most impressive was when a van just stopped dead in front of me perhaps trying for a deliberate accident and the car stopped itself. I was on the brakes as well but it assisted me. I would have thought all new cars would have these safety systems but perhaps not. An extra pair of eyes like that can't be a particularly expensive addition to an electric vehicle which is already somewhat more expensive than other vehicles on account of it being electric. Tesla have loads of cameras so I'm sure they have got it but then the driver can switch it off. I never switch mine off as I like the idea of it working at the right moment.
