This Auto Braking System Does Not Work Very Well... FAIL!

With new technology comes a learning curve that could prove to be a bit dangerous. Just ask this guy who volunteered to test out this Volvo’s automatic braking feature and ended up in a world of pain for trusting in the technology that apparently didn’t deserve it.

We watch in horror as this man stands, ready for the emergency braking system to kick in but unfortunately, it doesn’t as the vehicle plows over the guy standing in the way. We later learned that it turned out that the driver forgot to turn on the “city-safe” mode. The result got a little bit ugly.

Check out the video below that shows off the incident. We’re told that the individual that took the brunt of the collision are bruised but doing ok. This really makes you think about how cars are developing. What do you think about all of this new autonomous technology coming on the market?
