Emergency Brake Assist (EBA) was introduced when vehicle manufacturers realised that 90% of drivers fail to brake with enough force during emergency braking. EBA works by detecting when a driver is about to perform an emergency brake but does not apply full braking force. EBA then over-rides by applying the brakes in full and activates the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS). Some EBA systems will even detect an emergency braking situation by the speed at which a driver lifts their foot off the accelerator.
