When the set speed is too high for a curve, the speed is reduced slightly. Because curves may not be anticipated in advance, drive into a curve at an appropriate speed. The system has a limited detection range. Situations can arise in tight curves where a vehicle driving ahead will not be detected or will be detected very late.BMW 3 Series 2020-2023 Cornering User Manual 02

When you approach a curve the system may briefly report vehicles in the next lane due to the bend of the curve. If the system decelerates you may compensate it by briefly accelerating. After releasing the accelerator pedal the system is re‐activated and controls speed independently.

Driving off

In some situations, the vehicle cannot drive off automatically; for example:

  1. On steep uphill grades.
  2. In front of bumps in the road.
  3. In these cases, step on the accelerator pedal.

Weather

The following restrictions can occur under unfavorable weather or light conditions:

  • Poorer vehicle detection.
  • Short-term interruptions for vehicles that are already recognized.
    Drive attentively, and react to the current traffic situation. If necessary, intervene actively, for instance by braking, steering or evading.

Drive power

The set speed is also maintained downhill. The speed may not be maintained on uphill grades if the drive power is insufficient.
In ECO PRO driving mode, the vehicle may exceed or drop below the set desired speed in some situations, for instance on downhill or uphill grades.

Speed Limit Assistant

Principle

Speed Limit Assistant supports driving at the speed limit. A suggested speed can be applied.

General information

When the systems in the vehicle, e.g., Speed Limit Info, detect a change of the speed limit, this new speed value can be applied for the following systems:

  • Manual Speed Limiter.
  • Cruise control.
  •  Active Cruise Control with Stop &Go function ACC.

The speed value is suggested as the new desired speed to be applied. To apply the speed value, the corresponding system must be activated.

Safety information

Warning
The system cannot serve as a substitute for the driver’s personal judgment in assessing the traffic situation. Based on the limits of the system, it cannot independently react to all traffic situations. There is a risk of an accident. Adjust driving style to traffic conditions. Watch traffic closely and actively intervene where appropriate.

Warning
The set speed can be incorrectly adjusted or called up by mistake. There is a risk of an accident. Adjust the set speed to the traffic conditions. Watch traffic closely and actively intervene where appropriate.

System limits

Speed Limit Assistant is based on the Speed Limit Info system. Consider the system limits of Speed Limit Info. Upcoming speed limits can only be applied for the Active Cruise Control ACC.
Depending on the national-market version, the system may not respond at all or with limitations to the route when the navigation system is un‐able to clearly identify the position of the vehicle.

Additional information:

  • System limits of Speed Limit Information, refer to page 168.
  • For system limits of the sensors, refer to page 37.

Steering Assistant

Principle

The Steering Assistant helps keep the vehicle in the lane. For this purpose, the system executes supporting steering movements, for instance when driving in a curve.

General information

Depending on the speed, the system orients itself according to the lane markings or vehicles in front. Sensors on the steering wheel detect whether the steering wheel is being touched.

Safety information

Warning
The system cannot serve as a substitute for the driver’s personal judgment in assessing the traffic situation. Based on the limits of the system, it cannot independently react to all traffic situations. There is a risk of an accident. Adjust driving style to traffic conditions. Watch traffic closely and actively intervene where appropriate.
