The Lane Departure Warning feature warns drivers when drifting between lanes without using your signal light. It uses a camera attached to the windshield to function. You may be signaled by a beep, vibration, or even shown a picture on your navigation system, and/or an indicator light up.
Forward-Collision Warning (FCW) also called a pre-crash warning system, combines radar-, laser-, and/or camera-based systems to warn drivers of an impending collision by using visual, auditory, or physical cues. If the driver ignores the warnings, systems with autonomous braking, or autobrake, will apply partial or full braking force.
Forward Emergency Braking constantly monitors the distance between the vehicle and the one in front of it. This means that if for some reason the distance to the other car suddenly decreases, the system will determine that there is a risk of collision and will sound an audible alert. At this stage, the driver needs to notice this warning and then take action to avoid a collision. If not, the system judges that the car is still in danger of colliding with something, it will automatically engage the brakes, helping to avoid a collision. If a collision is unavoidable, the speed of the vehicle will have been decreased helping to mitigate damage caused by the collision.
Traffic Sign Recognition uses a front-facing camera technology to pick up upcoming traffic signs. Once this happens, character recognition software interprets what the sign is displaying and relays it onto the dashboard and/or infotainment display.It will remain there until a change is recognized, such as when the speed limit changes, the new sign will be displayed.
Blind Spot Monitoring is usually displayed on your side view mirrors The blind spot monitoring system will light up whenever there is a vehicle in a potential blind spot on either side of you.
