Automatic Emergency Braking System (AEBS):
An intelligent autonomous braking system designed to avoid a collision or limit its severity by reducing the vehicle's speed. The system is triggered if the driver does not react quickly enough, by activating the vehicle's brakes.
A multifunction camera located at the top of the windscreen coupled with a front bumper mounted radar are able to detect obstructions on the road. The system is able to detect vehicles that are moving in the same direction (up to National Speed Limit), or are at a stop (up to 50mph), together with pedestrians in the road (up to 37mph).
Distance Alert System:
Working in conjunction with AEBS, the distance alert function warns the driver if the vehicle risks a collision with the vehicle in front or a pedestrian in the road. Two levels of warning are available, the first 'Amber' warning provides a visual alert to the potential risk. In a more a severe instance a 'Red' visual and audible alert indicate a collision is imminent and driver action is required, failure to act triggers AEBS.
Cruise control as you know it, will never be the same again with new Peugeot 3008 SUV and EAT6 automatic gearbox technology*. Controlled via a radar mounted at the front of the vehicle with a range of up to 150 metres, the ACC Stop system provides two key functions:
The system detects a vehicle driving in front in the same direction and can automatically adapt the vehicle's speed to that of the vehicle in front. This occurs using engine braking and the braking system (in which case the brake lights are lit) to maintain a constant distance.
If the vehicle in front has slowed to a stop, new Peugeot 3008 SUV will also be brought to a stop by the ACC Stop system, if after this no response is received from the driver, the electric parking brake is automatically applied. This intelligent function is available at speeds of 18mph upwards.

Linked to the Safety Plus Pack, the all-new Peugeot 3008 SUV is always one step ahead. Featuring two lane keeping technologies, the vehicle is able to identify lines on the road via a windscreen mounted camera. The technologies are as follows:
Linked to the Safety Plus Pack, to help you stay sharp and alert behind the wheel, the all-new Peugeot 3008 SUV features a two stage driver alert system for added safety on the road, comprising:
By identifying deviations relative to the road markings the all-new Peugeot 3008 SUV is able to determine whether the vehicle's behaviour reflects a certain degree of driver drowsiness or inattention. If it is felt that the driver needs to take better care on the road a visual and audible alert will occur. If more than three instances occur, the driver will be advised to take a break.
Using the windscreen mounted camera, the all-new Peugeot 3008 SUV features speed limit sign recognition, leaving you in no doubt over the speed limit. Upon detecting a speed limit sign this information is read by the camera and displayed in colour on the 12.3" head-up digital instrument panel.
In addition to being made aware of the speed the driver also has the option to adapt their speed to the speed limit on the particular road via the vehicles cruise control stalk. The vehicle will then adjust its speed accordingly.
Linked to the Safety Plus Pack, PEUGEOT Smartbeam Assistance gives you one less thing to think about when driving at night. Controlled via a windscreen mounted camera, the system continuously analyses driving conditions, for instance the proximity of other vehicles.
PEUGEOT Smartbeam Assistance automatically switches headlamps to full beam when conditions allow, allowing you to tap into the full potential of the full LED headlamps* that offer uniform lighting to reduce eye fatigue, increasing driver comfort.
Linked to the Safety Plus Pack, now you can enjoy the feeling of having eyes in the back of your head.
Using lateral ultrasound sensors to cover areas out of your field of vision along with the windscreen mounted camera, an LED illuminates in either side door mirror to alert to the presence of a car, lorry, motorbike or bicycle in your blind spot.
The system works when overtaking a slower vehicle or when overtaken by a faster vehicle. This intelligent feature operates from speeds as low as 8mph right up to the National Speed Limit.
