Low Speed Auto Emergency Braking

What is Low speed AEB?

Low speed Auto Emergency Braking is a vehicle safety technology has the potential to prevent a crash or reduce the impact speed of a crash. This version targets city driving where crashes often occur at low speeds but can cause debilitating injury such as whiplash injuries.  Typically, these systems look for the reflectivity of other vehicles and are not as sensitive to pedestrians or roadside objects.

AEB can:

  • Alert the driver to an imminent crash and help them use the maximum braking capacity of the car and
  • Apply the brakes independently of the driver if the situation becomes critical


It is important to note that AEB systems are designed to support the driver only in emergency situations and that the driver remains responsible for the vehicle at all times.
