Change of target with cruise control functions

In combination with automatic gearbox, driver support Pilot Assist* has functionality for change of target at certain speeds.

Change of target

P5-1507-Adaptie Cruise Control,  change of target

If the target vehicle in front suddenly turns then there may be stationary traffic in front.

When Pilot Assist is following another vehicle at speeds below 30 km/h (20 mph) and changes target vehicle from a moving to a stationary vehicle, Pilot Assist will slow down for the stationary vehicle.

Warning

When Pilot Assist is following another vehicle at speeds in excess of approx. 30 km/h (20 mph) and the target is changed from a moving vehicle to a stationary vehicle, Pilot Assist will ignore the stationary vehicle and instead accelerate to the stored speed.

  • The driver must then intervene him/herself and brake.

Automatic standby mode with change of target

Pilot Assist is disengaged and set in standby mode:

  • when the speed is below 5 km/h (3 mph) and Pilot Assist is uncertain whether the target object is a stationary vehicle or some other object, e.g. a speed bump.
  • when the speed is below 5 km/h (3 mph) and the vehicle ahead turns off so that Pilot Assist no longer has a vehicle to follow.
