Area covered by the radar sensors
Schematic diagram: Area covered by the radar sensors
The area covered by the radar sensors ⇒ fig. 166 consists of:
- • The rearward approach zone (light green area: up to about 50 metres) 1 and
- • Blind spots (dark green area) 2.
The radar sensors monitor the lanes immediately to the left and right of your vehicle. Other lanes are not covered by the sensors.
The side assist system is programmed for lanes of a fixed width, and is not able to measure differing lane widths. It monitors a zone equivalent to one normal lane width on either side. If the lanes are narrower than this, or if vehicles are not travelling in the centre of the lanes, the system may register vehicles that are not in fact travelling in an adjacent lane.
