Information About the Emergency Brake Assist

By | August 28, 2012

This system builds the hydraulic pressure on the brakes within the time when the driver recognizes that it is the time to make a panic stop and when he starts applying the pressure on the brake pedal. In the time gap between these two actions, the system determines and applies more brake pressure quickly.

How it works?
In this system, the brake pedal activation velocity is measured and the amplifier raises the pressure in the brake circuit when the emergency situation is detected. And the extra pressure will be held until the driver releases the brake pedal, and the emergency warning lights will switch on automatically under the very sharp declaration. The programming logic determines the situation when a panic braking is going to happen and it starts to work.

Why to have this system?

It is for the slow driver’s action on the break pedal – as when the driver tends to apply insufficient pressure during the emergency situations or when he releases the braking pressure too soon, then the emergency brake assist acts as a remedy for both the situations/deficiencies. It also can reduce the stopping distance by 5 to 9 meters on dry road (short braking system). This is the system to create an enough pressure to stop a car in most of the situations, and in panic situations, when the driver has very less time to react and press the brake pedal hard enough to stop the thousand pounds of rolling steel.

If the drivers uses this system properly, this would decrease the number of road accidents/injuries and save the lives by applying full breaking pressure and avoid any accidents.
