Tesla's AEB System Now Works in Reverse

Written byRahul May, 2023

Tesla has introduced new options to its Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) system through the 2023.12 software update.

The AEB system activates the brakes automatically when it detects a potential obstacle, helping to prevent further damage or a collision.

With the latest update, the AEB system now works up to a maximum speed of 200 km/h, which is higher than the previous activation speed of 90 mph.

The updated AEB system now also works in reverse, allowing it to mitigate the effects of reverse collisions as well.

The AEB system is also automatically deactivated when the detected obstacle is no longer present.

While the AEB system is always active when the car is switched on, it can be deactivated for the rest of the journey by selecting "Automatic Emergency Braking" in the Autopilot section of the Controls menu.
