How Does Automatic Emergency Braking Work?
Automatic Emergency Braking uses the assistance of radar technology to monitor your Nissan’s proximity to the vehicle ahead of you. If a collision is detected, the driver is alerted with an audible and visual display warning to alert the driver to reduce vehicle speed. If the driver fails to respond and a collision is detected, the braking system will apply the brakes, helping to avoid a collision or reduce the impact if a collision is unavoidable.
