Driving Assistant combines the car’s camera-based systems - Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Warning, City Collision Mitigation and Preventive Pedestrian Protection.
The Lane Departure Warning detects the road’s lane markings and alerts the driver to an unintentional lane change at speeds above approx. 45 mph with a vibration in the steering wheel and a visual warning in the instrument cluster. The warning is not activated when the lane change is deliberate, i.e. when the indicator is turned on.
While the Forward Collision Warning detects vehicles, the Preventive Pedestrian Protection reacts to pedestrians. When there is a risk of collision, the Forward Collision Warning triggers a two-stage warning – a symbol in the instrument cluster lights up, followed by an acoustic alarm. The Preventive Pedestrian Protection triggers a single-stage warning in the event of an acute risk of collision. If the system warns of a potential collision, the brakes are simultaneously preconditioned for a faster response. In the event of an emergency, the City Collision Mitigation applies the brakes automatically.
