DAF introduces advanced autonomous braking as standard

DAF Trucks has introduced an improved autonomous emergency braking system as standard across its range of LF, CF and XF models.

AEBS-3 – the third generation of the firm’s system – can provide autonomous braking assistance to avoid collision with both stationary and moving vehicles up to a speed of 50 mph.

The system works alongside DAF’s Adaptive Cruise Control and Forward Collision Warning systems to provide a comprehensive suite of safety technology.

AEBS-3 uses a high precision dual radar, enabling detection up to 250 metres away and providing earlier recognition of potentially critical situations.

A 120˚ near range angle of view enables earlier prediction of cut-in situations – even in harsh weather conditions and in situations with poor visibility such as fog and low sun.

Via audible and visual alerts and a firm haptic brake pulse, the system prompts the driver to react to an imminent potential collision. If the driver fails to react, the truck automatically initiates emergency braking to avoid, or mitigate the impact of, a rear-end collision.
