C1185 Description


When the force applied to brake pedal exceeds a certain level, the brake assist is activated and generates a greater braking force than that of a conventional brake booster, even with light pedal force. When the Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC) preview function identifies the need to apply the sudden brake by sensing the vehicle ahead in the same lane and the distance and relative speed from it, it applies the brake pre-pressure before driver depresses the brake pedal and improves brake response by reducing its free play.
