Activating and starting Pilot Assist

Pilot Assist must first be activated and then started before it can help regulate speed and distance and provide steering assistance.

To start Pilot Assist:

  • The driver's seat belt must be buckled and the driver's door must be closed.
  • There must be a vehicle ahead (target vehicle) within a reasonable distance or your vehicle's current speed must be at least 15 km/h (9 mph).

Press the button on the steering wheel (6).

The symbol will change to Pilot Assist in standby mode (8).

Pilot Assist's steering assistance is only active when the steering wheel symbol (2) changes from GRAY to GREEN.

Pilot Assist will only regulate the time interval to the vehicle ahead when the distance symbol shows a vehicle (1) over the steering wheel symbol.

A speed interval will be marked at the same time.

The higher speed is the set speed for your vehicle and the lower speed is the speed of the vehicle ahead (target vehicle).

Hands on the steering wheel

Pilot Assist only functions if the driver's hands are on the steering wheel.

If Pilot Assist detects that the driver's hands are not on the steering wheel, a symbol and text message will appear to instruct the driver to actively steer the vehicle.

If the driver's hands are still detected on the steering wheel after a few seconds have passed, the instructions to actively steer the vehicle will be repeated, accompanied by an audible signal.

If Pilot Assist still does not detect the driver's hands on the steering wheel after a few more seconds have passed, the audible signal will become intense and the steering function will switch off. Pilot Assist must then be reactivated by pressing the button on the steering wheel.

Note

Note that the Pilot Assist function only works when the driver's hands are on the steering wheel.
