Details about each station

Station 1: Brake & Lane Change

This station is set up to test the emergency brake control and for the driver’s responding speed to stimulus. Here, drivers will get to test the ABS® and Brake Assist safety system and see from the outside as others activate the Adaptive brake light. Driving out from the starting point at a speed of about 100 km/ h., they must brake and swerve into the left or the right lane following the direction of the instructors. This exercise is designed to help the driver coordinate emergency braking and steering under pressure.
