Sees much more than two eyes
Despite the highest level of attentiveness, two eyes alone are sometimes not enough to maintain a full overview in busy inner-city traffic – especially in critical situations such as turning manoeuvres. In these cases, the turn assist* offers the driver active support in recognising weaker road users such as pedestrians or cyclists. Radar sensors integrated into the right-hand side wall reliably detect objects within a radius of almost 180° on the poorly visible co-driverʼs side. If there is a risk of a collision, the system* reliably warns the driver in a three-stage cascade as soon as the speed drops below 30 km/h (19 mph).
* Within the limits of the system.
If there is a moving object in the warning area, a luminous LED module on the A-pillar alerts the driver to the situation, for example if weaker road users approach the blind spot.
If the anticipated 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 will light up.
If immediate driver intervention is required to prevent a collision, level 3 is activated: All three LED lights will flash, accompanied by an acoustic signal tone.
