Pedestrian Auto Emergency Braking

What is Pedestrian AEB?

Pedestrian Auto Emergency Braking is a vehicle safety technology has the potential to prevent a crash or reduce the impact speed of a crash. This uses a camera combined with radar to detect vulnerable road users through their shape and characteristics. The way in which pedestrians move relative to the path of the vehicle is calculated to determine whether they are in danger of being struck.

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.
