Autonomous emergency braking — What is it?
Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEM) is like an extra set of eyes watching the road to brake your vehicle in situations where it’s required by where the drive isn’t applying the brakes. Autonomous Emergency Braking is part of the Advanced Driver Assistance (ADAS) system in your vehicle. ADAS uses various technologies like radar, ultrasonic, laser/radar (Li-dar), cameras and artificial intelligence to recognize a dangerous situation and apply a safety system to reduce accidents and injury.
How Autonomous Emergency Braking works
Using the vehicle’s accelerometer, radar, lidar, and ultrasonic sensors, the Autonomous Emergency Braking software determines if the driver is braking in a situation that requires braking. If the driver isn’t applying the brakes, AEB will automatically apply the brakes and steering to avoid or lessen the impact of a crash or avoid the impact altogether.
