The Genesis features an Automatic Emergency Braking* system that uses both a camera and a radar sensor. If a crash is imminent and the driver does not react, the system deploys Automatic Emergency Braking. The system can even apply full brake-force stopping power from 5 to 50 mph, giving you an added element of safety.
*The Genesis Automatic Emergency Braking system is designed to assist drivers to avoid, or reduce the severity of, collisions with cars that have slowed or stopped in front of them. It is a supplemental assist, and does not replace the need for extreme care and attention by the driver. Automatic Emergency Braking may not stop the vehicle completely and will not avoid all collisions.
Automatic Emergency Braking uses a camera and distance radar to evaluate a slowing or stopped vehicle in front of your vehicle. It must be able to recognize the rear end of a car in front of your vehicle in order to respond. Automatic Emergency Braking will only sense cars directly in front of the owner's vehicle and traveling the same direction.
• It will not sense all cars, depending on the shape size, distance, angle and brake light configuration of the car in front.
• It may not sense a rapidly slowing vehicle that is positioned too closely in front of yours.
• It will not sense cars placed at angles or entering from the side of the path of travel.
• It will not detect any objects other than cars, including but not limited to walls, trees, bridges, guard rails, road signs, bicycles, motorcycles, boxes, animals, pedestrians or unusually shaped vehicles.
• Automatic Emergency Braking will experience limited visibility and may not work on winding roads or hilly roads, and during weather conditions such as rain, snow, and fog.
• For Automatic Emergency Braking to work, vehicle operators must ensure the radar (center of grille) and camera (upper windshield) surfaces are clean and clear of dirt or debris, ice/snow, stickers, labels, markings or any issue that affects forward "vision".
Automatic Emergency Braking is automatically disabled below 5 mph. From 5-50 mph, if a slowed or stopped vehicle in front of it is detected, it will apply full braking and may stop the vehicle if enough distance is available. From 50-112 mph, if a slowed or stopped vehicle in front of it is detected, it will apply partial braking to help avoid or reduce the severity of accidents. It is up to the driver to always carefully manage speed and direction of travel to suit present conditions. You should never rely on the Automatic Emergency Braking enhancement to drive or stop the vehicle for you.
