The Pre-Collision Assist technology detects vehicles and pedestrians in the road ahead, or who could potentially cross the vehicle’s path, and warns you of their presence. If the driver does not respond to the warning, the system will automatically apply the brakes.
It has been designed to prevent frontal impact accidents involving pedestrians and reduce the severity of any accidents that do occur. The system functions at speeds of up to 50mph.
How does Pre-Collision Assist work?
This technology works by using radar and camera technology. This equipment scans the road ahead to detect obstructions and the driver is warned if the on-board system thinks there will be a collision. The initial visual and audible warning is the first stage of the system, and the second stage is when the brake pads are moved closer to the discs to reduce stopping time. The last stage is when no action is taken, so the system will fully depress the brakes. The Pre-Collision Assist technology has pedestrian shapes stored on the system so that it is not activated for regular objects that are not an obstruction.
