He introduced this summer DAF Trucks improved autonomous emergency braking system, AEBS-3. It is now part of the standard equipment of all DAF vehicles from the LF, CF and XF series. The company thus wants to contribute to a higher level of safety for drivers and other road users.
The AEBS-3 system in DAF vehicles is complemented by adaptive cruise control and a frontal impact warning system. The autonomous braking system can prevent collisions with surrounding objects, both static and moving, up to a speed of 80 km per hour. It cooperates with the brake system and the stability control system.
Jak to funguje?
If the system detects a collision, it alerts the driver with audible and sensory signals (the brake pedal starts to vibrate). If the driver does not react, the AEBS-3 system automatically applies emergency braking and tries to reduce the vehicle speed as much as possible. This prevents an impact with the object in front of the vehicle, but possibly also reduces the impact of the rear impact on the front of the car.
How AEBS-3 works
The new generation AEBS system uses radar with the longest range in its segment - up to 250 meters - to detect objects. The radar is equipped with 16 antennas and has an unrivaled detection width, up to 120 ° of field of view. This ensures faster and more accurate prediction of situations even during bad weather or in poor visibility conditions, such as fog or the direct angle of incidence of the sun's rays.
