The Driving Assistant package spots danger before it’s too late. Lane Departure Warning, for example, detects lane markings and alerts the driver of an unintentional lane change (for example when the indicator has not been activated) at speeds above approx. 45 mph.
Additionally, If a vehicle ahead brakes suddenly, the City Collision Mitigation proactively engages – flashing a symbol at first, before emitting a warning sound and finally lightly applying the brakes (when travelling at speeds under 35 mph).
Preventive Pedestrian Protection operates in a similar way, warning of a potential collision with a pedestrian in urban driving situations up to 35 mph by emitting a warning and pre-conditioning the brakes for a faster response. In the event of an emergency, the system applies the brakes. (The identification of pedestrians and cyclists is only active in daylight).
