Collision-avoidance technology that relies on a system of sensors to detect obstacles in the path of a motor vehicle and apply the brakes in a function designed to prevent collisions. This is usually performed by a distance-detecting sensor, such as radar, LiDAR, or a camera with image recognition. When a threat is detected, the system will automatically apply the brakes and slow the vehicle. Typ­ically, this cannot be overridden by the driver. See also forward collision warning (FCW).
