Version: 3.0, Release date: October 2020

Definition: Vehicle system that uses sensors and computer processing to detect when the ego vehicle could collide with an object in its path and applies the brakes automatically attempting to mitigate or avoid the collision, even if the driver takes no action.

NOTE: AEB systems may use different sensor types (e.g. camera, radar, lidar), work in different driving conditions (e.g. highways, urban) and act on the ego vehicle in different ways (e.g. only slow the vehicle or bring it to a complete stop).
