The Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Active Brake Assist 5 (ABA 5) relieves the driver by maintaining a constant distance – defined by the driver – from the vehicle ahead, based on continuous measurements. In doing so, ABA 5 additionally supports the driver in case of an imminent collision with stationary objects, moving objects and moving pedestrians.
As a further development of ABA 4, ABA 5 combines the use of radar and camera. Thanks to sensor fusion, the system can now react to people crossing, approaching or running in their own lane with an automated emergency stop within the system limits up to a vehicle speed of 50 km/h. This also applies to pedestrians who walk in front of the vehicle, are detected by the system while moving, and then suddenly stop.
In snow, rain, fog, heavy spray, glare, direct sunlight or changing lighting conditions, the range and recognition of vehicles and persons can be impaired.
