PRE-SAFEŽ Brake with Pedestrian Detection

PRE-SAFEŽ Brake with Pedestrian Detection

Even when you're not using the cruise control functions of DISTRONIC PLUS, PRE-SAFE Brake can help detect an impending collision and automatically apply up to 100% braking force to help reduce the severity of impact. At speeds of up to approximately 35 mph, new Pedestrian Detection can help detect if pedestrians have entered in your path and automatically apply the brakes.

Disclaimer

DISTRONIC PLUS adaptive cruise control is no substitute for active driving involvement. It does not adapt cruising speed in response to stationary objects, nor does it predict the curvature and lane layout of the road ahead or the movement of vehicles ahead. It is the driver's responsibility at all times to be attentive to traffic and road conditions, and to provide the steering, braking and other driving inputs necessary to retain control of the vehicle. Drivers are cautioned not to wait for the DISTRONIC Proximity Warning System before braking, as that may not afford sufficient time and distance to brake safely. After braking the car for stopped traffic ahead, system resumes automatically only if traffic pauses for less than 3 seconds. Braking effectiveness also depends on proper brake maintenance, and tire and road conditions.
