The system1 acoustically warns the driver of dangerous situations ahead. If another car or a pedestrian gets too close, it decelerates or brings the vehicle to a standstill.
1Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection works automatically above 5 km/h and below 140 km/h. From 5 to 30 km/h the deceleration metric to reduce the impact speed of the collision is 0,9 g. From 30 to 140 km/h the system reduces the speed by a maximum of 50 km/h. Above this threshold, the driver needs to brake him/herself to reduce the speed even further. Operational speed range of Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection depends on the detected obstacle (mobile obstacle: from 5 to 140 km/h; fixed obstacle: from 5 to 80 km/h; pedestrian: from 5 to 60 km/h). Opel driver assistance systems are intended to support the driver within the limitations intrinsic to the system. The driver remains responsible for the driving task.
