Advanced braking to go with all of Tucson’s get-up-and-go.
Having an advanced braking system at your command is essential to enjoying safer journeys. That’s the thinking behind Tucson’s available Automatic Emergency Braking System with pedestrian detection. If it determines that a collision is imminent and the driver does not react, the system deploys Automatic Emergency Braking. When a vehicle is detected, the system can apply full brake-force stopping power from 5 to 50 mph. When a pedestrian is detected, full stopping power is automatically applied from 5 to 43 mph.
*Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) is designed to detect vehicles whose tail lights are directly in front of the Tucson. AEB will not detect objects other than cars. AEB initiates full braking at speeds between 5 and 50 mph. AEB is not a substitute for safe driving. See Owner’s Manual for details and limitations.
Listed below are the conditions referenced in the owner’s manual where the system may not detect a pedestrian:
· The pedestrian is not fully captured by the camera sensor, or the pedestrian does not walk in the upright position.
· The pedestrian moves very fast.
· The pedestrian abruptly appears in front
· The pedestrian wears clothes in the color similar to the background
· The outside is too bright or too dark
· The vehicle drives at night or in the darkness
· There is an item similar to a person’s body structure
· The pedestrian is small
· The pedestrian has impaired mobility
· It is difficult to distinguish the pedestrian from the surroundings
· The sensor recognition is limited
· There is a group of pedestrians
