ADVANCED SAFETY (17/17)
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 alignment of the camera or radar(s) may be altered and its operation may consequently be
affected. Deactivate the function and consult an authorised dealer.
- Any work in the area where the camera or radars are located (replacements, repairs, windscreen 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
Some conditions can disturb or damage the operation of the system, such as:
- windscreen obscured (by dirt, ice, snow, condensation etc.);
- a complex environment (tunnel etc.);
- poor weather conditions (snow, rain, hail, black ice etc.) ;
- poor visibility (night, fog etc.);
- the road markings are irregular or difficult to distinguish (e.g. partially erased, excessive spacing, distorted road surface) ;
- being dazzled (glaring sun, lights of vehicles travelling in the opposite direction etc.);
- the road is narrow, winding or undulating (tight bends etc.);
- closely following a vehicle travelling in the same lane.
In this case, the “Advanced Safety” function may react incorrectly or not at all.
Risk of unwanted, incorrect correction or no correction of trajectory.
Deactivating the function
You must disable the function if:
- the camera area (on the windscreen side or the interior rear-view mirror side) or radar area(s) have been damaged;
- the windscreen is cracked or distorted (do not carry out windscreen repairs in this area; have it changed by an Authorised
Dealer);
- the vehicle is being towed (breakdowns);
- you are not driving on a paved road.
2.68
DRIVER VIGILANCE WARNING (1/2)
The driver vigilance warning is a func-
tion that analyses the behaviour of the
driver (driving style, direction of the ve-
hicle, etc.) and alerts them if there is a

It takes into account indicators such as:
- steering wheel movements;
- driver actions on other systems (indi-
cators, windscreen washers, etc.)

2.72
DETECTION OF ROAD SIGNS (3/3)
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.
