The BAS could be considered the cousin of the ABS and the grandfather of modern automatic emergency braking systems.
It was invented by Mercedes in 1996, after around 5 years of research and studies.
In the early 1990s, Mercedes began conducting some tests and found out that in an emergency situation, drivers tend to step on the brake pedal as fast as they can but without enough force and that’s where the BAS comes into play, because it could compensate if needed.
In order to perfect the BAS, Mercedes combined data from the traditional ABS, the traction control, the ESP and the limited-slip diff.
