2.104
ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL (12/13)
This function is an additional driving aid. It can under no circumstances replace the driver’s responsibility to respect
speed limits and safe distances and to be vigilant.
The driver must always be in control of the vehicle.
The driver must always adapt their speed to the surroundings and driving conditions, regardless of system indications.
Except for lines delimiting lanes, traffic indicators (traffic lights, signs, pedestrian crossings etc.) are not recognised by the
system. These do not trigger any alert or reaction by the system.
The system should under no circumstances be taken to be an obstacle detector or an anti-collision system.
The adaptive cruise control must only be used on a motorway (or multi-lane road separated by a barrier).
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 system and consult an authorised dealer.
- Any work in the proximity of the radar and/or camera (replacements, repairs, windscreen modifications, paintwork etc.) must
be carried out by a qualified professional.
Only an authorised dealer is qualified to service the system.
Deactivating the function
You must disable the function if:
- the vehicle is travelling on a windy road;
- the vehicle is being towed (breakdowns);
- the vehicle is towing a trailer or a caravan;
- the vehicle is being driven in a tunnel or close to a metallic structure;
- the vehicle arrives at a toll point, a roadwork area or on a narrow lane;
- the vehicle is being driven up or down a very steep slope;
- the visibility is poor (glaring sun, fog etc.);
- the vehicle is being driven on a slippery road surface (rain, snow, gravel, etc.);
- the weather conditions are poor (rain, snow, side winds, etc.);
- the radar area has been damaged (impacts etc.) ;
- the camera area has been damaged (e.g. on the inside or outside of the windscreen);
- the windscreen is cracked or distorted.
In the event of the system behaving abnormally, deactivate it and consult an authorised dealer.
2.105
ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL (13/13)
In the event of system disturbance
Some conditions can disturb or damage the operation of the system, such as:
- the windscreen or bumper is obscured in the area of the radar (by dirt, ice, snow, condensation, number plate etc.);
- a complex environment (tunnel etc.);
- poor weather conditions (snow, heavy rain, 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.);
- narrow, winding or undulating road (tight bends etc.);
- a slower vehicle with a significant difference in speed;
- use of mats not adapted to the vehicle. On the driver’s side, only use mats suitable for the vehicle, attached with the pre-
fitted components, and check the fitting regularly. Do not lay one mat on top of another. There is a risk of wedging the
pedals.
In these cases, the system may wrongly intervene.
Risk of unwanted braking or acceleration.
Many unforeseen situations may affect the system operation. Certain objects or vehicles that can appear in the camera or
radar detection zone may be interpreted by the system incorrectly, possibly leading to inappropriate acceleration or braking.
You should always be attentive to sudden events that might occur while you are driving. Always keep your vehicle
under control by keeping your feet near the pedals, so that you are ready to act in any event.
