Collision risk warning
Warning light for collision warning on the windscreenThe figure is schematic - parts may vary depending on car model..
Pilot Assist uses approx. 40% of the foot brake's capacity. If the car needs to be braked more heavily than Pilot Assist is capable of and the driver does not brake, the warning lamp and acoustic warning are activated to alert the driver that immediate intervention is required.
Strong sunlight, reflections, extreme light contrasts, the use of sunglasses, or if the driver is not looking straight ahead may make the visual warning signal in the windscreen difficult to recognise.
Pilot Assist only gives warning about vehicles detected by its camera and radar unit – therefore a warning may not occur or be delayed.
- Never wait for a warning. Apply the brakes when the situation requires!
