Effects of emergency braking

Autonomous Emergency Braking Systems (AEB) detect if an accident is imminent and intervenes by self-braking to prevent the impact or reduce the consequences. A study by the security organization Euro-NCAP with support of the Australian ANCAP has confirmed the effectiveness of the system. For this purpose, five European countries and Australia evaluated vehicles with AEB and had 38% fewer rear-end collisions compared to models without AEB. There was no distinction between city traffic and rural areas. 

Emergency braking systems are now available for most models, not only for higher priced cars, but also for small vehicles. Depending on the vehicle class and equipment line, the systems are also even available as standard.
