Lane Departure and Lane Change Warning.
Driving with instinct: the BMW 3 Series Touring provides discreet support and active assistance to avoid dangerous situations. Radars and cameras monitor conditions and warn the driver of lane changes and vehicles coming too close.
At the rear of the vehicle the Lane Change Warning uses radar sensors to activate a warning symbol on the wing mirror if there is a vehicle currently in the driver’s blind spot or if a vehicle is approaching quickly from the rear. As soon as drivers use the indicator to change lanes, they are warned in potentially dangerous situations by vibrations on the steering wheel and a symbol in the wing mirror that starts to blink.
The camera positioned at the front of the vehicle steers the Lane Departure Warning system. When travelling above 70 km/h, the system monitors road markings and their position versus the car as well as the edge of the road or lane. The system is activated whenever the vehicle leaves its current lane unintentionally and alerts the driver by making the steering wheel vibrate. Indicating deactivates this technology from BMW ConnectedDrive while the driver is turning off or changing lane.
The special equipment Lane Departure Warning includes an integrated camera-based collision warning. As soon as the system detects that the distance to the vehicle in front is too short, it warns the driver by means of a display on the instrument panel and an acoustic signal.
