Pedestrian Monitoring

Fußgängererkennung

Pedestrian Monitoring is an extension of the "Front Assist" area monitoring system featuring the City Emergency Brake. The system uses two sensors at the front of the vehicle, a radar in the radiator grille, and a camera in the mirror base, to monitor the area in front of the vehicle and, within the limits of the system, register certain situations, for example a pedestrian stepping onto the road suddenly. The system then gives an immediate acoustic and visual signal to warn the driver. If the driver does not brake, the system initiates a jolt of the brake as a warning about the critical situation, while at the same time preparing for hard braking. If the driver fails to react, the system automatically performs emergency braking, within system limits. Ideally this will prevent a collision, or at least reduce its severity.
