Definitions for "Brake assist"
A technology which senses an emergency braking situation and provides an immediate increase in hydraulic pressure. The system measures the speed at which the brake pedal is pressed in determining whether an emergency braking situation exists. Brake Assist systems can reduce the overall stopping distance of a vehicle by eliminating the human tendancy of not braking soon enough or hard enough.
System to reduce the stopping distance during emergency braking by rapidly generating maximum boost pressure.
An enhancement of ABS (see also this term), brake assist monitors pedal motion and maximizes system force in response to an emergency hit.
