Not all active safety systems work the same. AEB is one system that varies from manufacturer to manufacturer. So if fleet drivers are switching brands, they need a test drive to understand how different systems perform. Below are some definitions and explanations from the different manufacturer websites.
Toyota – Pre-collision Safety (PCS) – Using the vehicle’s built-in camera or radar, PCS system has been designed to alert you when a frontal collision is likely.
Hyundai – Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist – If a potential collision is detected, you’ll receive audible and visual warnings, and your brakes may be applied too.
Mazda – Smart City Brake Support (SCBS) – If there is a high risk, the system will warn you and brake automatically if needed.
Holden – Forward Collision Alert – You’ll be alerted when approaching the vehicle in front too fast with a head’s up warning.
Nissan – Intelligent Emergency Braking – In case of a possible collision, alerts sound before automatic braking is applied, to reduce speed and help you avoid a frontal collision.
All the information on safety systems is available on manufacturer websites.
