Intelligent Brake Assist with Forward Emergency Braking

Laser-guided Safety

Intelligent Brake Assist (IBA)[*] with Forward Emergency Braking (FEB)[*] uses radar to continuously monitor and analyze your closing speed to the vehicle ahead of you, helping detect an imminent collision. It provides a two-stage warning to alert the driver as the vehicle moves toward impact. If the driver takes no action, the system automatically engages the brakes to help reduce collision speed and impact, helping to mitigate the consequences of the accident.

Predictive Forward Collision Warning

Anticipate the Road Ahead

This world's first system warns the driver of risks that may be obscured from the driver's forward field of view. It can not only sense the relative velocity and distance of a vehicle directly ahead, but also of a vehicle travelling in front of the preceding one.[*]

Two vehicles ahead

A vehicle slows down suddenly and unexpectedly, triggering a potentially dangerous situation.

Directly in front

The driver reacts to the sudden slowdown by quickly stepping on the brakes, but it may not be enough to prevent a collision.

Infiniti QX80

Because of Predictive Forward Collision Warning, you have already been alerted to the potential risk and can respond accordingly, helping to avoid a collision.[*]

Lane Departure Prevention

Lane Departure Prevention (LDP)[*] helps keep your vehicle from unintentionally drifting from your lane. The available system utilizes a camera to monitor the distance between the vehicle and lane markings. If the vehicle drifts unintentionally towards the lane markers, the system first sounds an audible warning, then lightly applies selected brakes to help you ease your vehicle back into its lane.

Enhanced Control

Respond to the Unexpected

Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC)[*] helps correct oversteer or understeer by applying brake pressure to individual wheels and adjusting the engine's power output. The Traction Control System (TCS) helps enhance rear-wheel grip when accelerating by sensing wheelspin and automatically reducing engine output and/or braking the spinning wheel.

Blind Spot Warning System

Safety Beyond
What You See

Infiniti’s intuitive Blind Spot Warning System[*] helps alert the driver to vehicles detected in the blind spot area. An indicator light illuminates if the presence of another vehicle is detected in the blind spot area. If the driver engages the turn signal, the indicator flashes and an audible warning sounds.

Intelligent Brake Assist with Forward Emergency Braking [*]

When the Forward Emergency Braking[*] system judges that you need to slow down, it alerts you with a visual indicator on the instrument Cluster and also an audio cue, while the Intelligent Brake Assist[*] system may automatically apply harder braking to help avoid a collision. If conditions exist where a collision becomes unavoidable, the system automatically engages the brakes to help reduce collision speed and impact, helping to mitigate the consequences of the accident.
