SISTEMA AVANZADO DE FRENADO DE EMERGENCIA (AEBA)

WARNING

The Advanced Emergency Brake Assist (AEBA) system may not react to slow moving vehicles. The system does not react to stationary vehicles or vehicles travelling in the opposite direction. The driver must always drive with due care and attention. Driving without due care an attention greatly increases the risk of an accident.

WARNING

In some circumstances, warnings may not appear in the instrument panel. An example of this includes if the distance to the vehicle ahead is very small. Another example includes when carrying out a collision avoidance manoeuvre by making large steering wheel and pedal movements. The driver must always drive with due care and attention. Driving without due care an attention greatly increases the risk of an accident.

WARNING

The system utilises the same radar sensor as the adaptive cruise control system and forward alert function. The same performance limitations apply.

AEBA is only fitted on vehicles with adaptive cruise control. AEBA functions even if adaptive cruise control and forward alert are switched off.

AEBA is available at speeds above approximately 8 km/h (5 mph). AEBA improves braking response during emergency braking when a moving vehicle is detected close ahead.

If the risk of a collision increases after the FORWARD ALERT warning is displayed, the AEBA system is activated. The brakes are automatically applied gently, in preparation for rapid braking. Rapid braking may be noticeable to the driver. If the brake pedal is then pressed quickly, full braking is implemented, even if only light pressure is applied to the pedal. See SISTEMA DE FRENADO DE EMERGENCIA (EBA).

NOTES

Braking performance is only improved if the driver applies the brakes.

If there is a fault with the system, the instrument panel displays the message FORWARD ALERT UNAVAILABLE. The vehicle can still be driven and the braking system still operates, but without AEBA assistance. Consult a retailer/authorised repairer to have the fault rectified.
