System limits

Basic limits

System operation is limited in situations such as the following:

  • On steep hills, in steep depressions or in tight curves.
  • When the camera is dirty or the protective glass is damaged.
  • In heavy fog, rain or snowfall.
  • At very high external temperatures.

Limits of pedestrian detection

Animals are not detected by the pedestrian detection function, even if they are clearly visible in the image.

Limited pedestrian detection:

  • When people are fully or partially covered, especially when their heads are covered.
  • When people are not in an upright position, e.g., when lying down.
  • Cyclists on unconventional bicycles (e.g., recumbent bicycles).
  • After physical damage to the system, e.g., after an accident.
