Helps avoid rear-end collisions and accidents involving pedestrians.
Support ranging from warning to emergency braking.
Active Brake Assist can help to prevent accidents with vehicles in front and with crossing pedestrians or to minimise their consequences. If a danger of collision is detected, a visual and acoustic warning is first triggered. If the driver brakes, they are also supported by the adaptive Brake Assist. If required, this creates additional braking pressure in order to avoid a collision where possible. If the driver does not respond, the system initiates autonomous emergency braking. At low speeds this can be sufficient to prevent a rear-end collision.
