The area in which obstacles are scanned or calculated is approx. 120 cm to the front of the vehicle and approx. 60cm to the side вЂ‰.
Screen display and audible signal
The display shows the scanned areas in several segments. The closer the vehicle drives towards an obstacle, the closer the segment will move to the vehicle in the display вЂ‰ and в’·. The collision area has been reached at the latest when the penultimate segment is displayed. Do not drive on!

If there is an obstacle at a distance of approx. 0 вЂ“ 30 cm from the vehicle and the obstacle can be passed without any collisions, intermittent audible warning is given If the vehicle is steered in the direction of the obstacle, a continuous audible warning is given.
When there is is a risk of collision in the front area of the vehicle (before the B pillars) the acoustic signals will be given by the front speaker. When there is is a risk of collision in the rear area of the vehicle (behind the B pillars) the acoustic signals will be given by the rear speaker.
