Author | Jaime RamosLast March, the European Union announced that a regulation was going to enter into force in 2022 that would revolutionise transport. It consists of establishing 15 mandatory advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) in all vehicles sold as of that year. These systems include the controversial black boxes or: systems capable of recording all the events that occur in a car.The European authorities have designed this plan to combat the persistent problem of road accidents across the entire continent. More than 25,000 people die on European roads each year as a result of road accidents.At the beginning of this decade, European governments’ forecasts were very optimistic in terms of the progress of road safety: In fact, some even suggested we would see a world without traffic victims. Having reached this point in the century, the reality is very different. A change is needed to support this great milestone, and technology may just be the solution.
