FRONT ASSIST WITH PREDICTIVE PEDESTRIAN PROTECTION
Front Assist with Predictive Pedestrian Protection helps to prevent accidents in urban traffic. With the help of a radar sensor, the system can recognise critical situations occurring in front of the vehicle. If a collision is imminent, the driver is warned using a staged alert concept. If necessary, the system can initiate automated braking up to an emergency stop.
Driver Alert recognises when the driver’s concentration is waning. For this purpose, the system compares the steering information with the recognised overall driving style and with the predefined driving characteristics of a tired driver. In order to do this, the system analyses the steering characteristics 15 minutes after the engine has been started and saves the information. If necessary, the system prompts the driver to take a break.
