Lane Change Support LCS

Increases safety and makes driving easier: Lane change support* uses radar sensors to monitor the lateral areas of the vehicle even in heavy traffic and assists in changing lanes safely. If the system detects potentially dangerous situations, a three-stage warning is triggered via LED modules on the A-pillar.

Controls drive, brake and steering independently

The lane change support* provides safety and facilitates manoeuvring from one lane to another – even in the heaviest traffic. The system* uses radar sensors to monitor the areas to the left and right of your vehicle from a driving speed of 50 km/h (31 mph), thus supporting safe lane changes. The range is about 8 metres to the front, about 80 metres to the rear and about 4.5 metres to the side, covering a radius of about 180°. If the sensors* detect a dangerous situation when initiating a lane change, the driver is warned in a three-stage cascade, which significantly helps reducing the risk of a collision with other road users.

* Within the limits of the system.

Stage 1

If the lane change support detects a moving object in the right-hand warning area, an luminous LED module on the A-pillar alerts drivers to the situation. This allows them to estimate when it is safe to use the turn indicator to change lanes.

Stage 2

If the course of movement will likely lead to a collision, further warning stages will be triggered on the A-pillar depending on the urgency. Stage 2: All three LED modules on the corresponding side indicate the danger.

Stage 3

If the driver must intervene immediately to prevent a collision, level 3 is activated: All three respective LED lights will flash, accompanied by an acoustic signal tone.
