Airliners have had stick shakers and stick pushers to warn of and prevent stalls, for years.

Yeah, some pilots still managed to ignore them because their airline was too cheap to pay for the simulator time to learn how to use them. Instead the over worked and under experienced pilots were told to read up on it. The pilot had no idea why the stick was shaking and kept pulling back on the yoke while the co-pilot screamed all the way down till the crash. The airline tried to blame the airplane that was doing everything it could to try to keep this pair and 48 other people alive.
