What is Nissan Automatic Emergency Braking? How Does AEB work?
AEB is a type of driver assistance technology that measures and monitors the proximity between your vehicle and the one in front of it. As soon as the radar system detects a possible risk of collision, it will alert you with audible and visual warnings to hit the brakes, slow down, and avoid such a collision.
If you are not able to react in time, AEB will apply the brakes on your behalf, which should eliminate the risk of an accident between you and the vehicle in front of you. However, if the impact is unavoidable and AEB cannot prevent the crash, the damage will still be reduced by AEB hitting the brakes for you. By approaching the car in front of you at a lower speed, there should less damage done to everyone and everything involved.
