Steering assistance at risk of collision

Limitations for steering assistance upon risk of running off the road

Updated 7/23/2018

In certain demanding conditions the function may have difficulty helping the driver correctly. In such cases it is recommended to switch off this function.

Examples of such conditions are:

  • road works
  • winter road conditions
  • narrow roads
  • poor road surface
  • a very “sporty” driving style
  • poor weather with reduced visibility
  • roads with unclear or non-existent side markings
  • sharp edges or lines other than the lane's side markings
  • when the power steering works at reduced power - e.g. during cooling due to overheating (see section "Speed-dependent steering force").

Note

The function uses the car's camera unit, which has some general limitations, see the "Limitations for camera unit" section.

Note

The function uses the car's radar unit, which has some general limitations, see the section "Limitations for radar unit".
