Tesla has released its latest software update, in which the electric automaker has introduced a wide range of new features and changes to existing ones. One of the major updates introduced is updated Automatic Emergency Braking, or AEB. This life-saving technology now has improved functionality and also works when reversing. Other updates include the ability to control phone calls via steering wheel buttons and detect speed limit signs.
NotATeslaApp claims a new software update adds the ability for AEB to operate while reversing, albeit with limited functionality. Additionally, it can now also be activated while running forward at high speed. Before this updated version, Tesla’s AEB could operate in the speed range of 5-150 km/h when driving forward, but in the latest version, it can now operate in the range of 5-200 km/h when driving forward. hourly speed range.

This update to the AEB speed range feature during forward driving might not be very useful to Tesla owners in the US, but it will definitely be useful to those driving on Germany’s unrestricted autobahns.
Tesla added changes to its owner’s manual, and the electric automaker changed wording to better accommodate the update. “Automatic emergency braking is designed to reduce the effects of frontal and reverse collisions, while having limited functionality when in reverse,” the document reads. The Tesla owner’s manual also notes that the system is now able to determine the distance to detected objects, not just those in front of the vehicle.
AEB is a very critical safety technology that works by continuously scanning the road and automatically applying the brakes to reduce vehicle speed and the severity of a potential collision. However, the safety feature does not apply the brakes or stops applying the brakes in certain situations, including when the driver turns the steering wheel violently, manually depresses or releases the brake pedal while AEB is applying the brakes, and accelerates violently to apply the brakes while AEB is applied. move. Also, it does not work when a previously detected vehicle, motorcycle, bicycle or pedestrian is no longer in front of the vehicle.
