AEB Systems ‘Phantom Breaking’ Poses Liability Concerns

AF Editor Mike Antich offers his insights into the state of the fleet market in the 135th State of the Fleet Industry video, produced by Automotive Fleet. 

🎙Today's topics include:

  • The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) opened a formal investigation of a series of “phantom braking” incidents.
  • On January 8, 2023, a class-action lawsuit was filed against Tesla, alleging that 2021 and 2022 Model 3 and Model Y were prone to stop suddenly due to the false triggering of the automatic emergency braking system.
  • In the past four years, there have been a number of vehicles produced by various auto manufacturers recalled to correct primarily software issues with the automatic emergency braking systems for specific models.
  • It is important for fleet managers to be aware of the possibility of phantom braking and to stay informed of the situation as new developments occur.
