Your truck is probably fitted with something called AEBS, which stands for Advanced Emergency Braking System.

It is a driver assistance system that, by law, has had to be fitted as standard equipment to all new HGVs since November 2015.

Its purpose is to warn the driver if it senses that the truck is about to run into the back of other traffic and then apply the brakes to reduce the impact if the truck driver has failed to react in time.

  • But do you know what type of system you have?
  • Do you know how that system works?
  • Do you understand the limitations of the system?

National Highways and Driving for Better Business have created a series of short videos to help you understand AEBS and keep you and your truck safe.
