An auxiliary brake device such as a retarder is installed to maintain a stable vehicle speed when the vehicle is under a long slope, and the load of the service brake device can be reduced or released.
In the case of an emergency, 90% of the car drivers are decisive when they step on the brakes. The brake assist system is designed for this situation. It can detect the speed encountered by the driver when the driver steps on the brake pedal. In the case, when the driver quickly steps on the brake pedal in an emergency, but the pedaling force is insufficient, the system will assist and increase the braking force to the maximum in less than 1 second, shortening the emergency braking. Braking distance in case.
The Brake Assist (BAS) is intended to optimize the braking capacity of the vehicle during emergency braking operations. The system detects the emergency braking situation by sensing the braking force rate and magnitude, and then applies the optimum pressure to the brake. This helps to reduce the braking distance. The Brake Assist System (BAS) is an aid to the Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS). It works best in fast braking. For the system to produce the best results, you must add continuous brake pressure during the braking process (must not “push back” the brakes). Do not lower the brake pedal pressure unless braking is no longer needed. Once the brake pedal is released, the brake assist system (BAS) is deactivated.
