The safety package Driving Assistant is a combination of the camera-based systems High-beam assistant, Speed Limit Info and Lane Departure Warning, as well as Approach control warning and Person warning with light city braking function.
The High-beam assistant provides the best vision in darkness by avoiding other drivers when purposefully distributing the high-beam light. Intelligent Speed Limit Info recognises the current speed limits via camera and by comparison with navigation data, along with data from other systems such as GPS or rain sensors, in order to take limits into consideration that apply only for specific times or under wet conditions.
Lane Departure Warning causes the steering wheel to vibrate when the vehicle unintentionally leaves its lane at speeds of over 70 km/h. In critical situations, Approach control warning notifies the driver in two steps. The person warning operates at speeds between 10 and 60 km/h and emits a single-level warning in the event of acute danger. At the same time, the brakes are pre-conditioned for faster responsiveness. In case of an emergency, the system initiates braking, ensuring that the collision speed is reduced. If a vehicle ahead brakes suddenly, incrementally stronger warnings are emitted, up to light braking.
