Forward collision alert

The forward collision alert may help to

avoid or reduce the harm caused by

front-end crashes.
The forward collision alert uses the

front camera in the windscreen to

detect a vehicle directly ahead, in

your path.
The system triggers different level of

alerts depending on the risk of

collision detected. The alerts are

displayed in the Driver Information

Centre.
Level 1: A visual alert is displayed.
Level 2: A visual alert is displayed and

an audible alert sounds.

Caution

The colour lighting of this control

indicator does not correspond to

local traffic laws on following

distance. The driver bears full

responsibility for maintaining safe

following distance according to

applicable traffic rules, weather

and road conditions etc. at all

times.

9 Warning

Forward collision alert is just a

warning system and does not

apply the brakes. When

approaching a vehicle ahead too

rapidly, it may not provide you

enough time to avoid a collision.
The driver accepts full

responsibility for the appropriate

following distance based on traffic,

weather and visibility conditions.
The complete attention of the

driver is always required while

driving. The driver must always be

ready to take action and apply the

brakes.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Driving and operating

157

When the time to a potential collision

with a vehicle in front gets too small

and a collision is imminent, a warning

is displayed in the Driver Information

Centre.
Simultaneously a warning chime

sounds. Depress the brake pedal and

steer the vehicle, if it is required by the

situation.

Operation conditions

The following condition must be

fullfilled for proper operation:
The speed must be between 5 km/h

and 140 km/h.

Activation

To use forward colision alert, active

safety braking has to be activated in

the vehicle personalisation 3 103.

Selecting the alert sensitivity

The alert sensitivity has to be set to

close, normal or distant in the vehicle

personalisation menu 3 103.

Deactivation

The system can only be deactivated

by deactivating the active emergency

braking in the vehicle personalisation

3

 103.

System limitations

Forward collision alert is designed to

warn on vehicles only, but may react

also to other objects.
In the following cases, forward

collision alert may not detect a vehicle

ahead or sensor performance is

limited:

● Driving on winding or hilly roads.
● During nighttime driving.
● Weather limits visibility, such as

fog, rain, or snow

● The windscreen is damaged or

affected by foreign items, e.g.

stickers.

Active emergency braking

Active emergency braking can help to

reduce the damage and injury from

crashes with vehicles, pedestrians

and obstacles directly ahead, when a

collision can no longer be avoided

either by manual braking or by

steering. Before the active

emergency braking applies, the driver

is warned by the forward collision

alert 3 156 or the front pedestrian

protection alert 3 159.
The feature uses various inputs (e.g.

camera sensor, brake pressure,

vehicle speed) to calculate the

probability of a frontal collision.

9 Warning

This system is not intended to

replace the driver responsibility for

driving the vehicle and looking

ahead. Its function is limited to

supplemental use only to reduce

the vehicle speed before a

collision.
The system may not react to

animals. After a sudden lane

change, the system needs a

certain time to detect the next

preceding vehicle.
The driver must always be ready

to take action and apply the brakes

and steer to avoid collisions.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

158

Driving and operating

Operation conditions

Active emergency braking is

equipped with a front camera and

operates in forward gear above

walking speed up to 85 km/h.

Activation

Active emergency braking can be

activated in the vehicle

personalisation menu 3 103.

Functionality

The system includes:

● brake preparation system
● emergency automatic braking
● forward looking brake assist
● forward collision alert
● front pedestrian protection

Brake preparation system

When approaching a vehicle ahead

or a pedestrian so quickly that a

collision is likely, the brake

preparation system slightly

pressurizes the brakes. This reduces

the response time, when a manual or

automatic braking is requested.

The brake system is prepared so that

braking can occur more rapidly.

Emergency automatic braking

After activation of brake preparation

system and just before the imminent

collision, this function automatically

applies limited braking to reduce the

impact speed of the collision or

prohibit a crash. Depending on the

situation, the vehicle may

automatically brake moderately or

hard. This front automatic braking can

only occur if a vehicle 3 156 or a

pedestrian 3 159 ahead is detected .
Emergency automatic braking may

slow the vehicle to a complete stop to

try to avoid a potential crash.

9 Warning

Emergency automatic braking is

an emergency crash preparation

feature and is not designed to

avoid crashes. Do not rely on the

system to brake the vehicle.

Emergency automatic braking will

not brake outside of its operating

speed range and only responds to

detected vehicles and

pedestrians.

Forward looking brake assist

In addition to the brake preparation

system and emergency automatic

braking, the forward looking brake

assist function makes the brake assist

more sensitive. Therefore, pressing

the brake pedal less strongly results

in immediate hard braking. This

function helps the driver brake

quicker and harder before the

imminent collision.

9 Warning

Active emergency braking is not

designed to apply hard

autonomous braking or to

automatically avoid a collision. It is

designed to reduce the vehicle

speed before a collision. It may not

react to animals. After a sudden

lane change, the system needs a

certain time to detect the next

preceding vehicle.
The complete attention of the

driver is always required while

driving. The driver must always be

ready to take action and apply the

brakes and steer to avoid

collisions.

The system is designed to work with

all occupants wearing their seat belts.

System limitations

In some cases, the active emergency

braking system may provide an

automatic braking in situations that

seem to be unnecessary, for instance

in parking garages, due to traffic signs

in a curve or due to vehicles in

another lane. This is normal

operation, the vehicle does not need

service. Firmly apply the accelerator

pedal to override the automatic

braking if the situation and the

surroundings permit.
In the following cases, active

emergency braking performance is

limited:

● Driving on winding or hilly roads.
● Detecting all vehicles, especially

vehicles with a trailer, tractors,

muddy vehicles, etc.

● Detecting a vehicle when

weather limits visibility, such as in

fog, rain, or snow.

● During nighttime driving.

● Weather limits visibility, such as

fog, rain, or snow.

● The windscreen is damaged or

affected by foreign items, e.g.

stickers.

Complete attention is always required

while driving, and you should be

ready to take action and apply the

brakes and/or steer the vehicle to

avoid crashes.
