Daf launches new AEB system on LF, CF and XF

Daf Trucks has launched a new Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) system for its latest LF, CF and XF range that can detect stationary vehicles from up to 250m.

The AEBS-3 system uses a high precision dual radar with 16 antennas for far and near range detection.

Daf says it holds the best-in-class long-range sensor with the longest detection range in the industry of up to 250 metres, which enables earlier recognition of potentially critical situations.

The system is able to operate at a wider angle of 120-degrees to enable earlier prediction of cut-in situations – even in harsh weather conditions and in situations with poor visibility such as fog and low sun.

If a potential collision is detected, AEBS-3 provides audible and visual alerts plus a firm haptic brake pulse to prompts the driver to react. If the driver fails to react, the truck automatically initiates emergency braking to avoid, or mitigate the impact of, a rear-end collision.

The system, which is standard on all Daf LF, CF and XF trucks, is able to function at speeds of up to 50mph.
