When you first asked this question I tried to find out more info online. From what I know it is supposed to help in emergencies, as it increases braking pressure. When I learn more I will let you know.

You are correct Mark. In the case of emergency braking, the vehicle detects that you are hitting the brakes harder than normal & immediately boosts braking pressure for you before you can even get the brakes all the way to the floor. Under normal braking, it won't change anything.
