Advanced Anti-skid Braking System
Camry features Active Braking with intelligence (AB-i) technology across the range. The system is designed to help you stop quickly and safely in an emergency. Even if you're driving on a slippery surface or round a bend.
The AB-i system uses continuous feedback from sensors in the wheels to ensure that brake force is applied as effectively as possible whatever the driving conditions.
The Anti-skid Braking System (ABS) minimises wheel lock-up when braking, by continually adjusting individual wheel speeds, which greatly reduces the chances of skidding.
Electronic Brake-Force Distribution (EBD) distributes brake force to each wheel according to road conditions and vehicle load - when cornering, the load tends to be more on the outer wheels and when travelling up or down hill, there's more load on the downhill wheels. By applying brake force where it can be most effective, EBD helps the car to brake more safely in the most difficult circumstances.
Brake Assist (BA) senses from the speed and force of brake application when emergency braking is underway and adds brake pressure to slow the car more quickly.
Even the tyres improve brake performance. They were developed to Toyota's own tight guidelines and the superior grip they provide offers multiple benefits including better ride and handling and significantly shortened braking distances over previous models.

ABS (Anti-Skid Braking System)
Modern electronics and a hydraulic actuator compares and adjusts wheel speeds when braking to prevent wheel lock-up and hence a potential skid.
Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD)
Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) is a system that maximises braking efficiency. It senses the weight distribution of the vehicle and redistributes the braking to each wheel so that the wheels with most weight on them receive the most brakeforce.
Brake Assist (BA)
A system designed to assist the driver in emergency braking, where the driver cannot apply the high pedal force required to obtain the shortest possible braking distance. It supplements the braking power applied if the driver has not pushed hard enough on the brake pedal in an emergency braking situation - working in conjunction with ABS.
