How to Code the BMW Brake Force Display with NCS Expert
The Brake Force Display signals drivers behind a BMW vehicle that a heavy brake was used to allow them to react in time. This technology aims to help reduce the chances of rear-end collisions. This can be coded on a BMW vehicle using the NCS Expert software tool.
Youtube creator Evan Goyuk has made a guide on how to code the Brake Force Display on his BMW E46, check it out on the video below.
The Brake Force Display increases the instensity of the brake lights when heavy braking by expanding the number of illumated LEDs in the rear lamps. The brake ligths are clustered into two separate zones. When heavy braking is applied, the Brake Force Display activates the brake lights from both zones.
The Brake Force Display are activated right before the vehicle is completely at standtill. The lights from the second zone is activated as soon as the anti-lock sensors detect that the vehicle is decelarating at an excess of 5 m/second. The technology reacts in a split second to project a highly visible illumination and warn the following vehicle. The brake lights are then automatically deactivated once the vehicle accelerates.
