  • AEB systems can help drivers avoid or mitigate an accident.

  • The automatic brake function will apply the brakes without

  • any driver reaction

  • when a collision to the car in front is unavoidable.

  • Euro NCAP divides the available

  • AEB systems on the market into two categories:

  • at low speed City systems. At high-speed

  • Inter-Urban systems. These systems can consist of two functionalities:

  • an automatic brake function and a forward collision warning function.

  • AEB sensors are fitted to the vehicle

  • either behind the windscreen or at the front of the vehicle.

  • There are lasers for low speed for city or there are radars and cameras for the high speed

  • Inter-Urban systems. They are designed to work when maybe the driver isn't

  • and they can brake for the driver if he doesn't to avoid the crash occurring

  • in the first place. When we perform the AEB tests

  • although we have a test driver in the vehicle, the vehicle is actually being driven

  • by the robots.

  • In the test car here we have a steer robot which gives us path following;

  • we have an accelerator robot down here which does the speed control;

  • and for the Inter-Urban test where we have the brake response the forward

  • collision warning

  • we have a brake robot.

  • The tested cars are driven towards the rear

  • of a Euro NCAP vehicle target which replicates a car in front.

  • AEB City Systems

  • are assessed by Euro NCAP at a speed range of 10 to 50 km per hour

  • with stationary targets which replicate a car not noticed by the driver.

  • Due to distraction, even at lower speeds, the driver does not have sufficient time

  • to respond to a warning.

  • Inter-Urban Systems are more complex.

  • They use radars and sometimes cameras in sensor fusion

  • to constantly monitor the traffic situation

  • around the vehicle. If there is a potential collision,

  • the system will warn the driver. If the driver doesn't react

  • than the system can take over and automatically brake

  • to avoid the collision occurring.

  • The Inter-Urban tests use a mobile barrier towed behind a SUV.

  • This represents crashes on faster roads like motorways

  • where we see most killed and seriously injured.

  • Here, the driver can either react to a warning or the vehicle will

  • automatically brake to avoid the collision occurring.

  • Euro NCAP evaluates AEB Inter-Urban systems

  • in three different scenarios: Driving towards a stationary vehicle

  • at 30 to 80 km per hour. Closing in at a slower

  • vehicle in front at a speed range of 30 to

  • 80 km per hour.

  • Following a car in front which suddenly starts braking

  • at 50 km per hour. The test results

  • Euro NCAP assesses crash avoidance systems by allocating colors pads that

  • help easily recognize their efficiency.

  • AEB technology is already offered please visit our latest

  • AEB fitment survey results on the website. Research indicate that 90

  • percent of road accidents

  • are caused by drivers who are distracted or inattentive. By including AEB systems

  • in the

  • overall star rating as from 2014

  • Euro NCAP hopes the availability of such systems

  • will increased and contribute in reducing the number of accidents

  • on European roads.

AEB systems can help drivers avoid or mitigate an accident.
