Autonomous Emergency Braking System (AEBS)

AEBS to avoid collisions with a car

AEBS is the system which detects a forward pedestrian with camera or radar and alerts visually or auditorily 1 to urge a driver to avoid collision by applying the brake, 2 and if no action is taken by a driver and collision is likely to happen it brakes automatically.
However there is a condition as noted in the caution page. (Refer to the note.)

Test Procedures / Evaluation method

AEBS* to avoid collisions with a car

A test vehicle collides to a target at a speed of 10 to 60 km/h from behind and AEBS is evaluated with the result.
The test scenarios are carried out in two ways. One is to collide into stationary unmoving target. The other is to collide into a moving target at 20 km/h. Points are obtained for the case that collision is avoided or collision speed is reduced by AEBS.

AEBS* to avoid collisions with a pedestrian (at daytime)

A test vehicle traveling toward a pedestrian target crossing the road with10 to 60 km/h speed range, the warning and AEBS system is assessed.
The tests are carried out in two scenarios. One is to cross the road in clear visibility, and the other is to cross the road from behind of the car parked. Points are obtained for the case that collision is avoided or collision speed is reduced by AEBS.

AEBS* to avoid collisions with a pedestrian (at nighttime test with street lamp”) (From FY2018)

A test car traveling at a speed of 30–60 km/h approaches a target simulating a pedestrian crossing a night road with street lamp to investigate the operational condition of an alarm and an advanced emergency braking system.
Tests are conducted assuming two types of traffic environments: crossing a road with good visibility and crossing a road from the rear side of an oncoming vehicle.
Even when a collision was avoided similarly in the daytime or a collision occurred, points are given considering the reduction in speed before the collision. The test is conducted at night, and the environment with a street lamp is simulated.

AEBS* to avoid collisions with a pedestrian (at nighttime test without street lamp”) (From FY2019)

A test car traveling at a speed of 30–60 km/h approaches a target simulating a pedestrian crossing a night road without street lamp to investigate the operational condition of an alarm and an advanced emergency braking system.
Tests are conducted assuming two types of traffic environments: crossing a road with good visibility and crossing a road from the rear side of an oncoming vehicle.
Even when a collision was avoided similarly in the daytime or a collision occurred, points are given considering the reduction in speed before the collision. The test is conducted at night, and the environment without a street lamp is simulated.

Note

AEBS, detecting forward pedestrian and applies brake or alert is not perfect for every circumstance.
Depending on each detector it differs from operating speed area or distance.Surrounding environment and conditions of pedestrians may cause the system not to work or not work effectively.
Please check carefully in the instruction manual, try to drive safely without depending on such system.
