Traffic jam assistant.
Traffic jam assistant controls the speed of the car and distance to the car ahead in dense traffic on motorways at speeds of up to 60 km/h, and even takes over steering.
At speeds of up to 60 km/h, the system lets the car simply "glide along" with the other cars in dense traffic situations, making traffic jams less stressful. It automatically maintains the desired distance from the vehicle ahead and regulates the car's speed down to standstill – as well as providing active steering support. The vehicle is able to help the driver stay in the correct lane, as long as the driver at least keeps his or her hands on the wheel. The car automatically starts moving again after a complete standstill of up to 30 seconds, instead three seconds as up until now. This takes fully automated driving one step further.
