- ADAS (ADVANCED DRIVER ASSISTANCE SYSTEM) FEATURES:
ACC (ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL): Adaptive Cruise Control, also known as ACC is an advanced version of cruise control, particularly helpful for long drives as it senses the road ahead and enables the vehicle to control its acceleration and braking to achieve desired speed but also maintain a safe distance from cars ahead.
APA (AUTOMATIC PARKING ASSIST): This system is a parking assist system for assisting in typical parallel and vertical parking. Once turned on, the ultrasonic sensor searches and judges the parking space. Once sufficient parking space is detected, the vehicle will assist you in parking by controlling the steering movement automatically and telling the driver when to apply reverse and drive gear and apply the brake.
FCW (FORWARD COLLISION WARNING): The Forward Collision Warning, alerts the driver with both visual and acoustic signals when a potential collision is detected with a four-wheeler, two-wheeler or a pedestrian. The system is designed to alert and bring back the driver’s attention and reduce the probability of a collision.
AEB (AUTOMATIC EMERGENCY BRAKING): In case, the driver takes no or insufficient action on the FCW alert and warning for potential collision with a four-wheeler, the Automatic Emergency Braking will get activated and apply brakes on your behalf to further prevent or reduce the severity of the possible collision.
BSD (BLIND SPOT DETECTION): Blind spot detection systems use sensors to provide drivers with important information that is otherwise difficult or impossible to obtain. This feature detects and alerts the driver of any sudden movements in his/her blind spot – be it over-taking vehicles or side-lane strafing by motorcyclists.
LDW (LANE DEPARTURE WARNING): Lane Departure Warning uses a camera to detect lane markings ahead and monitors the vehicle’s position in its lane. When the function detects that the vehicle is unintentional, without signalling about to move out of its designated lane, it warns the driver by means of visual and acoustic signals.
