The Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) System is a feature where your car will detect imminent forward collision through a sensor in your front bumper. When a collision is detected the car alerts the driver through sounds, dashboard lights, and sometimes vibration.
If you have an AEB light it is one of three things:
- Proximity sensors
- AEB module
Some AEB systems also have the feature of pre-charging your brakes once the collision is detected, and once you even lightly tap on them, the brakes will engage at full power instantly.
Automatic Emergency Braking System (AEB) and Supplemental Restraint System (SRS)
The Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) System is not related to the SRS system. These are two completely separate systems that work in the same category, safety.
The SRS system is the system that controls thing like your airbags and seatbelts. If it detects any faults in either, then an SRS light will turn on.
