Automatic Emergency Braking System (AEBS):
An intelligent autonomous braking system designed to avoid a collision or limit its severity by reducing the vehicle's speed. The system is triggered if the driver does not react quickly enough, by activating the vehicle's brakes. A multifunction camera located at the top of the windscreen coupled with a front bumper mounted radar are able to detect obstructions on the road. The system is able to detect vehicles that are moving in the same direction (up to National Speed Limit), or are at a stop (up to 50mph), together with pedestrians on the road (up to 37mph).
Distance Alert System:
Working in conjunction with AEBS, the distance alert function warns the driver if the vehicle risks a collision with the vehicle in front or a pedestrian on the road. Two levels of warning are available, the first 'Amber' warning provides a visual alert to the potential risk. In a more severe instance a 'Red' visual and audible alert indicate a collision is imminent and driver action is required, failure to act triggers AEBS.
