This technology decreases damage by predicting and bracing for collision before an impact.
When the Pre-crash Safety System detects an obstruction (such as a leading vehicle) and determines a high possibility of collision, it notifies the driver with a warning buzzer. Then the pre-crash brake assist is activated and increases the braking force when the driver hits the brake.
If it determines the collision is unavoidable, the pre-crash brake activates to decrease the impact speed. At the same time, the pre-crash seatbelt retracts to restrain the driver to help reduce injury.
