AEB automatically initiates emergency braking to minimize the chances of a serious crash or reduce its consequences. The standard AEB responds to the presence of a preceding vehicle via the front camera, optionally available with radar, which adds the ability to detect the presence of pedestrians.

alert the driver of the danger. AEB initiates emergency braking to avoid or minimise
the effects of any such collision.
