System limits

Due to system limitations, warnings may Be alert

Due to system limitations, warnings may be not be issued at all, or may be issued late or improperly. Therefore, always be alert and ready to intervene; otherwise, there is the danger of an accident occurring.

Detection range

The detection capacity of the radar sensor and the collision warning has limitations.

This may result in the warning not being issued or being issued late.

For example, the following situations may not be detected:

  • Slow moving objects when you approach them at high speed.
  • Vehicles that suddenly swerve in front of your vehicle.
  • Two-wheeled vehicles ahead of you.
  • Pedestrians.

Functional limitations

The system may not be fully functional in the following situations:

  • In heavy fog, rain or snowfall.
  • In tight curves.
  • If the radar sensor is dirty or covered.

Prewarning sensitivity

If the prewarning setting is too sensitive, there may be an excess of false warnings.
