Section 580 Emergency brakes

The air pressure exerted by the automatic emergency braking system on service brakes must not fall below 415 kilopascals (60 pounds per square inch). This pressure is considered sufficient to bring the vehicle to a stop and hold it there. System designs using other pressures should follow the manufacturer’s recommendations.
