Collision Avoidance – steering assistance for evasive manoeuvres

Steering assistance can assist the driver to steer away from an obstacle when it is not possible to avoid a collision by braking alone. Steering assistance is always enabled and cannot be deactivated.

The function engages by amplifying the driver's steering input, which only occurs after the driver has begun to take evasive action - and then only if the driver is not steering enough to avoid a collision.

In parallel with the amplified steering input, the brake system is also used to further amplify the steering input. The function also helps to straighten the car again after passing the obstacle.

The function can detect:
  • vehicles
  • cyclists
  • pedestrians
  • larger animals.
