AEB applications in the new Ram 1500 and the refreshed 2019 Jeep® Cherokee may bring a vehicle to full stop if imminent frontal collision is detected at higher speeds.
The approach leads to wide-ranging innovation, from a new strategy to deliver Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) as FCA US pioneered the democratization of sensor-fusion technology, having committed to the strategy in 2016. Once reserved for luxury-brand vehicles, it combines the attributes of radar and cameras to determine the deployment of AEB.
AEB applications in the redesigned Ram 1500 and refreshed 2019 Jeep Cherokee offer increased capability. It may bring the vehicle to a full stop if an imminent frontal collision is detected at speeds below 31 miles per hour (mph) – up from 25 mph in other/previous applications of the FCA US technology.
FCA US offers sensor-fusion AEB in 15 products across nine segments.
