DETECTION OF ROAD SIGNS (4/4)
Operating faults
The system cannot detect the speed
limit if:
- the windscreen is not clean;
- the camera is blinded by the sun;
- there is insufficient visibility (night,
fog etc.);
- the signs are not legible (snow, etc.)
or are hidden (by another vehicle or
by trees);
- the information taken from the navi-
gation system is not up to date.
This function is an additional driving aid. This function is not under any
circumstances intended to replace the due care and attention of the
driver, who should at all times be in control of the vehicle.
The driver should always adapt their speed to the traffic conditions, re-
gardless of the system indications.
The system detects speed limit signs and does not detect other signs (e.g. entry/
exit to/from urban areas, etc.).
The system may not detect all speed limit signs or may interpret them incorrectly.
The driver should not ignore signs that are not detected by the system and should,
as a priority, comply with the traffic signage and the highway code.
In the event of poor visibility (fog, snow, frost, etc.), it is possible that the system
may not indicate the correct speed to the driver.
The driver should always adapt their speed to the traffic conditions, regardless of
the system indications.
