DAF recently launched the newest iteration of its advanced emergency braking system, AEBS-3, for its LF, CF, and XF ranges. AEBS can automatically brake while the truck is traveling at speeds of 80 kilometres per hour and below to avoid collisions with moving vehicles as well as stationary objects. It also complements adaptive cruise control and forward collision warning safety features, as the system only applies the brake if the driver doesn’t respond to audible, visual, and haptic alerts.
Longer Range, Improved Accuracy
AEBS-3 has a dual radar system with 16 antennas, which is nine more than the previous generation, allowing “for far and near range detection,” DAF explains. The detection range has increased from 200 to 250 metres for a quicker reaction time and the near-range angle of view has broadened from 50 to 120 degrees for improved collision detection even in low-visibility conditions and inclement weather.
