Approach control warning with a light braking function

Principle
The Forward Collision Warning warns of a possible risk of collision 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 two-phase warning of a possible risk of collision with vehicles at speeds above approx. 3 mph/5 km/h. The timing of warnings may vary with the current driving situation.
When the vehicle is driven so that it is intentionally approaching another vehicle, the Forward Collision Warning and brake intervention are delayed in order to avoid false system reactions. Depending on the vehicle equipment, the Driver Attention Camera in the instrument cluster captures the driver’s field of vision. Additionally, the system checks for visual impairments. Field of vision and visibility also affect the timing of the warnings.
