For example, the systems can help the driver to:
- use steering assistance to reduce the risk of accidentally leaving the lane or colliding with another vehicle
- maintain a set speed
- maintain a certain time interval to the vehicle ahead
- prevent a collision by giving a warning to the driver and braking the car
Some of the systems are fitted as standard while others are options – which alternative applies is market dependent.
Some of the systems have improved functionality when Google Maps is used.
The driver support systems are only supplementary aids - they cannot handle all situations in all conditions.
The driver always bears responsibility that the vehicle is driven safely and that applicable road traffic rules and regulations are followed.
