Airbus has been given the green light to put its novel "brake to vacate" system in use.
All in all a nice extra feature to have.
An explanation on how it works is described in the link below.

Here is how it will look on the PFD

Sounds like an excellent little (or even not so little) addition to the flight deck  Smile. However, what I don't really get: in the last landing described in the article, exit S-6 was simulated as runway end and they deliberately triggered the runway too short warning. So they got the max reverse advisory. But even though they put the engines to idle at 70 kts, they managed to turn off the rwy at 10 kts on S-6. So why was the runway too short alert triggered, is this calculated without reverse just with wheel brakes? I'm happy to learn from anyone with more insight than I have  Smile.


WARNING! The post above should be taken with a grain of salt! Furthermore, it may be slightly biased towards A.

I don't know any specifics about this particular system, but generally, required runway lengths on dry runways are calculated without reversers (while on wet runways, reversers are included in the calculation). The same goes for calculating accelerate stop distances.
