Apart from the massive loss of life every year, accidents also leave a trail of financial losses behind. It is estimated that every year road accidents cost USD 518 billion globally with low and middle-income countries accounting for nearly USD 65 billion annually.

Unless specific measures are taken, road traffic injuries are predicted to become the fifth leading cause of death by 2030. While attempts have been made to reduce road accidents through legislation, technology, better infrastructure, and driver education, various innovations have been made in the automotive industry to make vehicles safer and reduce accidents.
