SAFE DISTANCE ALERT (1/4)
The function is activated when the vehi-
cle speed is between about 19 and
1
124 mph (30 and 200 km/h).
Location of the camera 1
Make sure the windscreen is not ob-
scured (by dirt, mud, snow, condensa-
tion etc.).
Location of the radar 2
Ensure that the radar area is not ob-
structed (by dirt, mud, snow, a badly
fitted front number plate), impacted,
2
modified (including painting) or hidden
by any accessory fitted on the front of
the vehicle (on the grille or logo etc.).
Using the information from the radar 2
and camera 1, this function informs the
driver of the time interval between their
vehicle and the vehicle in front so that a
safe stopping distance between the two
vehicles can be maintained.
This function is an addi-
tional driving aid. This func-
tion is not under any cir-
cumstances intended to
replace the due care and attention
of the driver, who should at all times
be in control of the vehicle.

SAFE DISTANCE ALERT (4/4)
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.
System servicing/repairs
- In the event of an impact, the radar and/or camera alignment may be changed and its operation may consequently be af-
fected. Deactivate the function and consult an authorised dealer.
- Any work carried out in the area where the radar and/or camera is located (replacements, repairs, windscreen and/or
bumper modifications, etc.) must be carried out by a qualified professional.
Only an authorised dealer is qualified to service the system.
In the event of system disturbance
- obstruction of the windscreen or the bumper (by dirt, glass, snow, condensation, etc.);
- a complex environment (metal bridge, tunnel etc.);
- poor weather conditions (snow, hail, black ice etc.);
- poor visibility (night, fog etc.);
- poor contrast between the vehicle preceding it and the surrounding area (e.g. white vehicle in a snowy area etc.) ;
- being dazzled (glaring sun, lights of vehicles travelling in the opposite direction etc.);
- the road is narrow, winding and undulating (tight bends etc.)
Risk of erroneous false alarms.

approved dealer.
The possible causes are:
- the system is temporarily blinded
(glare from the sun, dipped beam
headlights, bad weather conditions
etc.). The system will be operational
again when visibility conditions are
better;
- the system is temporarily interrupted
(e.g. the windscreen or the front or
rear bumper is obscured by dirt,
mud, snow, condensation, etc.). In
this case, park the vehicle and switch
off the engine. Clean the windscreen
and front bumper. When you next
start the engine, the warning light
and the message go out.
If this is not the case, this may arise from
another cause; contact an Approved
Dealer.
2.75
ACTIVE EMERGENCY BRAKING (6/8)
Active emergency braking
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 triggering of this function may be
delayed or prevented when the system detects clear signs of control of the vehicle by the driver (action on the steer-
ing wheel, pedals etc.).
The system cannot be activated:
- when the gearbox lever is in neutral or the clutch pedal has been depressed during approximately ten seconds;
- when the parking brake is activated;
- when the Electronic Stability Program (ESC) has started.
System servicing/repairs
- In the event of an impact, the radar and/or camera alignment may be changed and its operation may consequently be af-
fected. Deactivate the function and consult an authorised dealer.
- Any work in the area where the radar and/or camera is located (repairs, replacements, windscreen modifications, etc.) must
be carried out by a qualified professional.
Only an authorised dealer is qualified to service the system.
2.76
ACTIVE EMERGENCY BRAKING (7/8)
System disturbance
Some conditions can disturb or damage the operation of the system, such as:
- a complex environment (metal bridge, tunnel etc.);
- poor weather conditions (snow, hail, black ice etc.);
- poor visibility (night, fog etc.);
- poor contrast between an object (vehicle, pedestrian etc.) and the surrounding area (e.g. pedestrian dressed in white lo-
cated in a snowy area);
- being dazzled (glaring sun, lights of vehicles travelling in the opposite direction etc.);
- obstruction of the windscreen or the radar area (by dirt, ice, snow, condensation etc.);
- ...
In these conditions, the system may not react, may warn the driver or may brake inadvertently.
Limitation of the system operation
- Each time the vehicle is started, the system carries out a calibration according to the vehicle surroundings and may be inac-
tive for a length of time between approximately two and five minutes;
- a vehicle moving in the opposite direction will not trigger any alert or affect operation of the system;
- the radar and camera zones must be kept clean and free of any modifications in order to ensure the proper operation of the
system;
- the system may not respond to small vehicles such as motorbikes as effectively as to other vehicles;
- the system may not operate properly when the road surface is slippery (rain, snow, black ice, etc.);
- to ensure correct operation, the system needs to distinguish the complete outline of the pedestrian. So the system cannot
detect:
- pedestrians in the darkness or in poor lighting conditions;
- partially visible pedestrians:
- pedestrians less than approximately 80 cm tall;
- pedestrians carrying large objects;
- ...
In these conditions, the system may not react, may warn the driver or may brake inadvertently.
2.77
ACTIVE EMERGENCY BRAKING (8/8)
Deactivating the function
You must disable the function if:
- the brake lights are not functioning;
- the area of the camera has been damaged (e.g. on the inside or outside of the windscreen);
- the front of the vehicle was damaged (impact, scratch on the radar, etc.);
- the vehicle is being towed (breakdowns);
- the windscreen is cracked or distorted (do not carry out windscreen repairs in this area; have it changed by an approved
dealer);
- you are not driving on a paved road.
In the event of the system behaving abnormally, deactivate it and consult an authorised dealer.
Halting the function
You can halt the active emergency braking function at any time by tapping the accelerator pedal or by turning the steering
wheel in an avoidance manoeuvre.
2.78
FATIGUE DETECTION WARNING (1/2)
The fatigue detection warning is a func-
tion which is useful on monotonous
roads (motorways, high-speed roads
1
etc.).
It analyses driver behaviour and takes
account of events to inform you of any
risk of fatigue such as:
- steering wheel movement;
- driver actions on other devices (indi-
cators, windscreen washer etc.);
- time spent driving without stopping;
- ...

Under no circumstances should this

2.83
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.
