between 4 and 30 km/h (2.5 - 19 mph), a laser sensor mounted at the top of the front windshield glass detects a vehicle or obstacle in front of the car and reduces brake rotor travel to
boost braking efficiency when the system determines that there is a risk of a collision.
If the driver fails to perform any avoidance
manoeuvre, automatic braking is activated. Should the speed difference between the driver's car and the vehicle in front
be under 30km/h (19 mph), the system is designed to avoid, or mitigate the damage from a
cars equipped with the Acceleration Control for
Automatic Transmission function, if the driver accelerates when an obstacle in front has been detected by the
SCBS' laser sensor, the system alerts the driver with an alarm sound and an indicator. At the same time, engine output is curbed to stop unintended acceleration.
says that it intends to extend its advanced safety technologies, such as
SCBS, to other upcoming new models. In the meantime, the auto maker
reminds the users that the performance of the system may be impacted by road
/ driving conditions, weather conditions and the state
of the vehicle. >>>
