Default testing AEB

I want to know that all the systems on my car work, of course, and I think that's particularly important with safety gear.

So I'm thinking about the Autonomous Emergency Braking system. Is there a good way to test this? Clearly, not by busting it down the Interstate and seeing if you cream the guy in front of you, but I'm thinking something you can maybe do in a quiet parking lot somewhere.

Also, as far as I can tell by googling, these systems seem generally to have a speed limit above which they won't work. Does anybody know what the K900's limit is?

30 mph to bring you to a complete stop before hitting anything.
Will slow you down going faster than that, but you still might hit something
Of course if it is wet or snow sorry may not help.

Thanks for the info.

I googled up some interesting videos where there were tests using an inflatable car in front of you, but somehow I don't seem to have one of those lying around. So I'm still thinking this over.

Hang a sheet, draw a pretty picture of a car, then accelerate towards it.
