Tesla has enhanced their Automatic Emergency Braking feature to make i – Tesla Maison

Tesla has upgraded their Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) system by including reverse functionality and raising its top operational speed limit.

AEB systems have become standard on many cars due to their active safety feature of detecting upcoming collisions and applying breaks automatically to help avoid them. AEB has become a necessity as distracted driving has reached all-time levels, helping prevent accidents.

Tesla took one step further by updating their software to add two additional features. First, their vehicle can now stop when reversing and secondly they can now reach higher top speeds.

Tesla updated their Owner's Manual with the 2023.12 Software Update.

Tesla's previous Owner's Manual stated that AEB could help mitigate frontal collisions; however, Tesla revised this wording to "limit functionality in reverse to minimize front and rear collisions".

Tesla has also increased the maximum speed of AEB from 3 MPH to 120 MPH; previously it covered a range from 3 to 90%.

Tesla has provided updates regarding when their AEB will not activate. Their AEB will not engage when the vehicle is in either park mode (nor will any of their models).

  • Quickly turning the steering wheel has occurred.
  • Once AEB has applied the brakes, pressing and releasing the pedal will no longer work.
  • Acceleration was quickly increasing while AEB attempted to apply brakes.
  • The object or person (or vehicle) which had been detected no longer exists.

Tesla strives to improve vehicle safety by adding new features. AEB system revisions not only benefit drivers and owners, but also the people around their vehicles.
