Collision Prevention Assist

How Collision Prevention Assist works in a car?

What is Collision Prevention Assist By Mercedes-Benz?

Rear end collisions are the main reason for the accidents in the world. This means that the vehicle moving on road strikes the next vehicle due to some reasons. this could be the distraction of driver's attention & driver drowsiness. With the aim of reducing rear-end collisions, Mercedes Benz developed Collision prevention assist system. This is new driver assistance system. It helps to avoid such mishap.

The most important part of this system is the radar-based sensor. It continuously monitors the speed of the next vehicle. It monitors the speed of the next vehicle if it is decreasing rapidly posing a threat of collision. If so, then the system warns the driver. It displays an indicator in the instrument panel. Alarm bell automatically rings when drive ignores the alert displayed on the dashboard. This system also works when changing the lanes while driving.



Most modern Collision Prevention Assist systems have the capability to optimise the brake pressure. It does so to counter the dangerous situation successfully. In such a condition, even if the driver applies brake very slightly, the system ensures that the desired braking force is applied. If the system predicts that the collision is unavoidable, then it sounds an alert to the passive safety systems such as seat belts.

Collision Prevention Assist on Mercedes Benz works from the vehicle speed of 7 km/h to 250 km/h.
