Forward Collision Mitigation technology. It is a radar-based autonomous emergency braking system that uses front-mounted radar to scan 200m ahead. When it detects a risk of collision, the system issues a visual and audible warning and pre-fills the brakes. If the driver does not respond, the system begins braking moderately. If the driver still does not respond, the system can bring the car to a complete stop.

Finally, Fiat's City Brake Control also received an award from Euro NCAP, which is also an autonomous emergency braking system. It works at between 5km/h and 30km/h and uses Light detection and ranging at the front of the car to scan 10-12m ahead. It works similar to the Mitsubishi system with first a warning, then pre-filling the brakes and finally stopping the car.
