Available Autonomous Emergency Braking is one of the latest innovations in safety technology. It uses a camera and radar sensors to detect rapid closing speeds to the vehicle immediately ahead, and will provide warning notifications to the driver if it detects a potential collision. If the driver fails to respond, the system can provide full braking assistance at speeds under 80 km/hour to prevent a potential collision. Available Lane Departure Warning uses radar to keep track of your lane, and will give you a notification through a vibration in the steering wheel if you begin to unintentionally drift from your lane. Available Blind Spot Detection uses radar to detect a vehicle in your blind spot, and will notify you using a visual alert in the corresponding exterior side mirror.
