Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist Operation

Basic function

Warning and control

The basic function of Forward Collision- Avoidance Assist is to help warn and control the vehicle depending on the collision risk level : 'Collision Warning', 'Emergency Braking' and 'Stopping vehicle and ending brake control'.

Collision warning

  • To warn the driver of a collision, the 'Collision Warning' warning message will appear on the cluster and an audible warning will sound.
  • If a vehicle is detected in front, the function will operate when your vehicle speed is between approximately 6~112 mph (10~180 km/h).
  •  If a pedestrian or cyclist is detected in front, the function will operate when your vehicle speed is between approximately 6~37 mph (10~60 km/h).
  • If 'Active Assist' is selected, braking may be assisted.

Emergency braking

  • To warn the driver that emergency braking will occur, the 'Emergency Braking' warning message will appear on the cluster and an audible warning will sound.
  • If Forward Collision- Avoidance Assist judges that avoiding a collision is difficult even by changing the driving lane, the function will operate when your vehicle speed is between approximately 6~37 mph (10~60 km/h).
  • If a pedestrian or cyclist is detected in front, the function will operate when your vehicle speed is between approximately 6~37 mph (10~60 km/h).
  • In emergency braking situation, braking is assisted with strong braking power by the function to help prevent collision with the vehicle, pedestrian or cyclist ahead.

Stopping vehicle and ending brake control

  • When the vehicle is stopped due to emergency braking, the 'Drive carefully' warning message will appear on the cluster.

    For your safety, the driver should depress the brake pedal immediately and check the surroundings.

  • Brake control will end after the vehicle is stopped by emergency braking for approximately 2 seconds.

WARNING

Take the following precautions when using Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist:

  • For your safety, change the Settings after parking the vehicle at a safe location.
  • With 'Active Assist' or 'Warning Only' selected, when ESC is turned off by pressing and holding the ESC OFF button for more than 3 seconds, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist will turn off automatically. In this case, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist cannot be set from the Settings menu and the light will illuminate on the cluster warning light will illuminate on the cluster which is normal. If ESC is turned on by pressing the ESC OFF button, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist will maintain the last setting.
  • Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist does not operate in all situations or cannot avoid all collisions.
  • The driver should hold the responsibility to control the vehicle.

    Do not solely depend on Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist. Rather, maintain a safe braking distance, and, if necessary, depress the brake pedal to reduce driving speed or to stop the vehicle.

  • Never deliberately operate Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist on people, animal, objects, etc. It may cause serious injury or death.
  • Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist may not operate if the driver depresses the brake pedal to avoid collision.
  • Depending on the road and driving conditions, Forward Collision- Avoidance Assist may warn the driver late or may not warn the driver.
  • During Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist operation the vehicle may stop suddenly injuring passengers and shifting loose objects. Always have the seat belt on and keep loose objects secured.
  • If any other system's warning message is displayed or audible warning is generated, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist warning message may not be displayed and audible warning may not be generated.
  • You may not hear the warning sound of Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist if the surrounding is noisy.
  • Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist may turn off or may not operate properly or may operate unnecessarily depending on the road conditions and the surroundings.

WARNING

  • Even if there is a problem with Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, the vehicle's basic braking performance will operate normally.
  • During emergency braking, braking control by Forward Collision- Avoidance Assist will automatically cancel when the driver excessively depresses the accelerator pedal or sharply steers the vehicle.

CAUTION

Depending on the condition of the vehicle, pedestrian and cyclist in front and the surroundings, the speed range to operate Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist may reduce. Forward Collision- Avoidance Assist may only warn the driver, or it may not operate.

Information

In a situation where collision is imminent, braking may be assisted by Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist when braking is insufficient by the driver.

When driving on a curve, you must

When driving on a curve, you must maintain a safe braking distance, and if necessary, steer the vehicle and depress the brake pedal to reduce your driving speed in order to maintain a safe distance.

Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist

Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist may detect a vehicle, pedestrian or cyclist in the next lane or outside the lane when driving on a curved road.

If this occurs, Forward Collision- Avoidance Assist may unnecessarily warn the driver and control the brake. Always check the traffic conditions around the vehicle.

  • Driving on a slope

Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist

Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist may not detect other vehicles, pedestrians or cyclists in front of you while driving uphill or downhill adversely affecting the performance of the sensors.

This may result in unnecessary warning or braking assist, or no warning or braking assist when necessary.

Also, vehicle speed may rapidly decrease when a vehicle, pedestrian or cyclist ahead is suddenly detected.

Always have your eyes on the road while driving uphill or downhill and if necessary, steer the vehicle and depress the brake pedal to reduce your driving speed in order to maintain a safe distance.

  • Changing lanes

[A] : Your vehicle,

[A] : Your vehicle,

[B] : Lane changing vehicle

When a vehicle moves into your lane from an adjacent lane, it cannot be detected by the sensor until it is in the sensor's detection range.

Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist may not immediately detect the vehicle when the vehicle changes lanes abruptly. In this case, you must maintain a safe braking distance, and if necessary, steer the vehicle and depress the brake pedal to reduce your driving speed in order to maintain a safe distance.
