Does Nissan's automatic emergency braking (AEB) system have a defective radar? A California lawsuit says malfunctions in the system create random emergency braking situations when the radar detects objects that aren’t really there.

The owner's manuals for many of the vehicles admit the automatic emergency braking systems do "not function in all driving, traffic, weather and road conditions.” But the plaintiff says the manual leaves out the part about how the systems can cause vehicles to suddenly stop even when no objects are in the driving lane.

It’s scary to think that a safety system might actually create more crash scenarios than it prevents.
