To increase the chances of the system providing warnings relating to larger animals (e.g. deer and horses), the system function which identifies the animal must receive body contour information that is as clear as possible. This assumes that the system has the option of distinguishing the animal directly from the side in combination with a pattern of movement normal for the animal.
If parts of the animal's body are not visible to the function's camera then the system cannot detect the animal.
City Safety can also detect large animals in the dark if they are illuminated by the car's headlamps.
Elk and horse are examples of what City Safety interprets as large animals - standing still or moving slowly, with clear body outlines.
City Safety is supplementary driver support, but it cannot detect all large animals in all situations and, for example, cannot see:
- partially obscured large animals.
- larger animals seen from the front or from behind.
- large animals that run or move quickly.
- large animals if the background contrast of the animals is poor - warning and brake interventions may then be late or not occur at all.
- small animals such as dogs and cats, for example.
The driver is always responsible that the vehicle is driven correctly and with a safety distance adapted to the speed.
