Here is an overview of the new assistance systems whose functions have been notably enhanced: DISTRONIC PLUS with Steering Assist and Stop&Go Pilot takes the burden off the driver when it comes to staying in lane and the system is able to partially autonomously follow vehicles in stop and go traffic. Thanks to the stereo camera, the Brake Assist system BAS PLUS with Cross-Traffic Assist is, for the first time, now able to detect crossing traffic and pedestrians, as well as boost the braking force applied by the driver. If the lane markings are broken lines, Active Lane Keeping Assist can detect when the adjacent lane is occupied, especially by oncoming traffic, and reduce the risk of the vehicle leaving its lane unintentionally by applying the brakes on one side. Adaptive Highbeam Assist Plus allows the main-beam headlamps to be kept on permanently without dazzling other road users. With the aid of a thermal imaging camera, Night View Assist Plus can alert the driver to potential dangers posed by pedestrians or animals in unlit areas. ATTENTION ASSIST can now warn the driver of inattentiveness and drowsiness over an extended speed range.
