Land Rover Discovery: As described below, there was a problem when we tested the AEB-system of the Land Rover Discovery. Now we have discussed this problem with the tecnical department of Land Rover, and we have been updated on how the system works: The AEB-system operates with a stereo camera, which monitors the activity in front of the car. Since the car is designed also for offroad use, the camera runs an initializing procedure after each restart, and if the system doesn’t recognize any traffic, the system will be kept inactive. If there is traffic around the car, the system will turn into active mode. In the case of the test at Tannistest, which was performed at an airfield, there was no traffic around the car, and the system therfore remained inactive. We have now tested the car in an active mode with traffic around, and then the system managed to perform a full autobrake with speeds up to 45 km/h.

Here  is the results from the Elktest performed at the Sindal Airport on Tuesday. [UPDATED]

Tannistest 2017 – Elk Test

AEB-test Report 2017

NB: We did a re-test of  the AEB-system of Land Rover Discovery and Honda Civic. The test’s was done on Thursday 5th October at Sindal Airport against the same obstacle. Dry conditions.

Land Rover Discovery: (SEE TEXT ON TOP, editor) In the first test the car only managed to stop at a speed of 15 km/h. At the re-test the result was even more worse. The second car did not stop at all. Land Rover has now started to investigate this problem…

Honda Civic: In the first test the max. speed was 15 km/h. Another test with another car confirmed this. A third car of the mass-production managed to stop up till 58 km/h. Honda will investigate the problem, but there is likely an issue with some of the cars at Tannistest, since they are from a batch of the pre-production. 58 km/h should be the right value for Honda Civic…
