Pedestrian Warning with City Collision Mitigation

Principle

The Pedestrian Warning warns in the city speed range of possible risk of collision with pedestrians and bicycle riders and may brake independently. In the event of an accident, the system may reduce impact speed.

General information

Sensors detect the traffic situation. The system issues a warning of a possible risk of collision with pedestrians and cyclists at speeds above approx. 3 mph/5 km/h. The system reacts to pedestrians and cyclists who are within the detection range of the system.

Safety information

Warning

The system cannot serve as a substitute for the driver’s personal judgment in assessing visibility and traffic situation. There is a risk of accident. Adjust driving style to traffic conditions. Watch traffic closely and actively intervene where appropriate.

Warning
Indicators and warnings cannot serve as a substitute for the driver’s personal judgment. Due to its limits, the system may not issue warnings or reactions, or these may be issued late or in a manner that is not consistent with their normal use. There is a risk of accident. Adjust driving style to traffic conditions. Watch traffic closely and actively intervene where appropriate.

Warning
Due to system limits, individual functions can malfunction during tow-starting/towing with the Intelligent Safety systems activated. There is a risk of accident. Switch all Intelligent Safety systems off prior to tow-starting/towing.

Detection rangeBMW 3 Series 2020-2023 Pedestrian Warning with City Collision Mitigation User 03

The detection range in front of the vehicle is divided into two areas:

  • Central area, arrow 1, directly in front of the vehicle.
    Extended area, arrows 2, to the right and left of the central area.
    A collision is imminent if pedestrians are located within the central area. A warning is issued about pedestrians who are located within the extended area only if they are moving in the direction of the central area.

Intervene immediately by braking or making an evasive maneuver.

Brake intervention

The warning prompts the driver to intervene. While a warning is active, the maximum braking force is used when the brake is applied. In order to activate the Brake Assistant function, the brakes must be applied sufficiently quickly and forcefully. If there is a risk of collision, the system may also assist with brake intervention. When the vehicle is traveling at a low speed, the vehicle may come to a complete stop. The brake intervention can be interrupted by stepping on the accelerator pedal or by actively moving the steering wheel. The system’s ability to detect objects may be limited in some circumstances. Refer to the in‐formation in this Owner’s Manual regarding the limitations of the system and actively intervene as warranted.

System limits

Safety information

Warning
The system is designed to operate in certain conditions and circumstances. Due to conditions or other factors, the system may not respond. There may be a risk of accident or risk of damage to property. Actively intervene as warranted. Refer to the information in this Owner’s Manual regarding the scope of the system’s operation and limitations.

Upper-speed limit

The system responds to pedestrians and cyclists when the speed of the vehicle is below approx. 50 mph/80 km/h.

Detection range

The system’s detection capability is limited.
Thus, a warning might not be issued or be is‐sued late.

The following situations may not be detected, for instance:

  1. Partially covered pedestrians.
  2. Pedestrians that are not detected as such be‐cause of the viewing angle or contour.
  3. Pedestrians outside of the detection range.
  4. Pedestrians having a body size less than 32 in/80 cm.

Additional information:

  • Cameras, refer to page 37.
    Radar sensors, refer to page 38.
