Multi Function Mono Camera (MFC)
Along with the radar, the camera forms an essential technological component on the way to automated driving. Cameras contribute to the relief of the driver. They can detect diverse objects, such as other road users, road signs or traffic lanes. These information are used for supporting the driver in controlling the high beam, in maintaining track or in recognizing traffic signs.
- Lane Departure Warning (LDW)
- Lane Departure Protection / Road Departure Protection (LDP / RDP)
- Lane Keeping Assist
- Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR) & Speed Limit Assist (SLA)
- Unsteady Driver Warning (UDW)
- Head-Light Assist (HLA)
Surround View Camera (SVC)
The Surround View Camera (SVC) has a range of vision of more than 180°. Hence, it is suitable in assisting the driver in complex situations, such as parking, maneuvering, or in driving with a trailer. Due to the use of four camers – in front, in the rear as well as in the wing mirrors – a 3D environment of the vehicle can be represented to the driver. Moreover, camera data can be used for object detection. Besides, Surround-View Cameras can replace exterior and interior mirrors.
- 3D Surround View
- Back-up Assist
- Automated Parking
- Mirror Replacement
The Rear View System increases the field of view for the driver, detects additional information for fusion with other parking systems and supports also trailer functions. A scalable camera concept offers from viewing only level up to active steering and brake support for full NCAP and legislation compliance.
- Backup Assist / Rear Emergency Braking
- Rear View
Short-Range Radar (SRR)
The Short Range Radar Sensor (SRR) was developed for monitoring the blind spot as well as the area in the back of the vehicle. Thus, functions such as the Blind Spot Assist, can be realized. Hereby, the driver is warned when tempting to pull out despite the lack of a gap.
- Lane Change Assist (LCA)
- Blind Spot Detection (BSD)
- Front- / Rear Cross Traffic Alert (FCTA / RCTA)
- Occupant Safe Exit (OSE)
Long Range Radar (ARS)
The Long Range Radar Sensor (ARS) detects objects in front of the vehicle. In the process, the short- and long-distance areas are monitored by two independent scans. With a maximum range of 250 m, the Long Range Radar forms the core of the intelligent cruise control. Relevant functions, such as the Emergency Brake Assist, including Collision Warning, are realized besides the Radar NCAP.
- Emergency Brake Assist (EBA)
- Forward Collision Warning (FCW)
- Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) + Stop & Go
- Traffic Jam Assist (TJA)
Direct Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS)
The direct tire pressure monitoring system monitors the tire pressure and warns the driver as soon as pressure decreases below a defined threshold value. For realizing this function, a sensor is installed below every weel, measuring the pressure as well as the temperature. A central steering unit evaluates the sensors’ data. In case of a pressure loss, a warning is send to the driver. Thus, the system fulfills the regulations NHTSA FMVSS No.138, ECE R64 and GB-26149-xxxx.
