Forward Collision Alert & Automatic Emergency Braking

Forward Collision Alert

As technology advances, automatic emergency braking has been introduced to make driving safer. Forward collision alerts are designed to give drivers more time to react before an accident. The system uses sensors and cameras in the front of the car to detect when a collision is likely and alerts the driver with a visual warning or sound.

The forward collision alert sounds like an alarm and it activates when the car detects that there is an object in front of it that may cause a crash. The system warns you by giving you ample time to brake before collisions happen or pull over if not possible. If the driver fails to take action, like hitting the brake pedal or steering away from the potential hazard, it automatically activates braking at full force in order to avoid a collision. Forward Collision Alerts are typically part of an advanced driver assistance system (ADAS).

Forward Collision Alert & Automatic Emergency Braking:

  • Can warn you when it detects a potential front-end collision with a vehicle you’re following so you can quickly take action
  • Also can provide a tailgating alert if you are following a detected vehicle much too closely
  • When traveling at speeds below 50 mph in the daytime, the system works with Forward Collision Alert to help you avoid or reduce the severity of a front-end collision with a detected vehicle you’re following
  • Camera technology is used to automatically provide hard emergency braking or enhance the driver’s hard braking


It is important to have your windshield camera recalibrated after having your windshield replaced. This will help the camera work the same way that the vehicle manufacturer intended. If the camera is not recalibrated you run the risk of the vehicle’s safety features not working properly. ‘
