Pre-safe brake system:-
Also known as Pre-crash System or Forward Collision Warning System.
This is an automobile safety system designed to reduce the severity of an accident.
The system uses radar or sometimes laser and camera sensors to detect an imminent crash.
Once the detection is done, these systems either provide a warning to the driver or take action autonomously by braking without any driver input.
Active Lane Keeping Assist:-
Active Lane Keeping Assist is a system which monitors the area in front of your vehicle by means of a camera at the top of the windscreen.
Active Lane Keeping Assist detects lane markings on the road and warns you before you leave your lane unintentionally.
If you do not react to the warning, a lane-correcting application of the brakes can bring the vehicle back into the original lane.
Anti-lock Braking System:-
The ABS is a four-wheel system that prevents wheel lock-up by automatically calculating the brake pressure during an emergency stop.
By preventing the wheels from locking, it enables the driver to maintain steering control and to stop in the shortest possible distance.
The anti-lock brake system consists of the following components:- Hydraulic Control Unit (HCU). Anti-lock brake control module. Front anti-lock brake sensors / rear anti-lock brake sensors.
Electronic stability control:-
Also known as Dynamic Stability Control (DSC).
ESC is a computerized technology that improves the vehicle's stability by detecting and reducing loss of skidding.
When ESC detects loss of steering control, it automatically applies the brakes to help "steer" the vehicle.
ESC systems also reduce engine power until control is regained.
Active Body Control:-
Also known as magic body control system.
In ABC system, a computer detects body movement from sensors located throughout the vehicle, and controls the action of the active suspension with the use of hydraulic servomechanisms.
Total 13 sensors present over the body of car, continuously monitor body movement and vehicle level and provides the ABC controller with new data in every ten milliseconds.
The system also incorporates height adjustable suspension, between the speeds of 60160km/h for better aerodynamics, fuel consumption, and handling of vehicle.
Night Vision Assist:-
An Night Vision Assist system is a system to increase a driver's perception of seeing distance in darkness or poor weather beyond the reach of the vehicle's headlights.
System use an infrared light source built into the car to illuminate the road ahead with infrared rays which are invisible to humans.
These infrared rays are used to displays a greyscale image in the display.
This enables the driver to see any obstacles in good time.
If pedestrians is recognized by the system, it highlights it in the Night View Assist display.
