by Tanuj Mittal Content Curator

Everyone wants to enjoy safe and worry-free driving, making safety one of the top concerns in vehicles. This is why car manufacturers like BMW are coming up with innovative safety features such as Driving Assistant and Driving Assistant Plus that aims to avoid road accidents and collisions. This safety function acts as an assistant driver and warns him/her of any danger. The BMW is also fitted with surround view cameras, infrared monitoring and remote control that further helps in smoother and noticeably safer driving.

Driving Assistant and Driving Assistant Plus

The Driving Assistant and Driving Assistant Plus use sensors to make travel in the BMW 7 Series as comfortable as possible. Let’s have a look at the Driving Assistant and Driving Assistant Plus feature in detail:

Collision Warning Feature

The Collision Warning feature makes use of radar sensors and a stereo camera to alert the driver of potential collisions and incoming traffic, from the front and rear. The sensors automatically detect any obstacles that may come your way even before they are visible and prepares to brake fully. It also detects lane markings and keeps your car always in the middle of the lane.

Lane Keeping Assistant/Lane Departure Warning

Lane Keeping Assistant ensures that your car is always in the middle of the lane. For instance, as you’re driving and another car gets too close to you, it will alert the driver with a sound keeping you at a safe distance. Your car would automatically slow down or steer away from the object to prevent any collision.

If your vehicle reaches a speed of over 70 km/h, the Lane Departure Warning feature recognizes lane markings and keep your car in the middle of the lane. Similarly, Lane Change Warning draws the driver’s attention with a vibration in the steering wheel, if your vehicle enters the driver's blind spot. This will prevent the vehicle from leaving lane unintentionally or colliding with obstacles.

Active Cruise Control

The Active Cruise Control feature helps maintain your speed up to 210 km/h. It also keeps you at a certain distance from the vehicle ahead of you. This feature is like driving on autopilot. However, you still have to keep your hands on the wheel.

Traffic Jam Feature

This feature allows you to rest during heavy traffic and monitors any obstruction. It automatically stops, slows down, or accelerates during traffic, making traffic jams less stressful.

Conclusion

The Driving Assistant and Driving Assistant Plus system is recommended for safe driving. With such innovative safety functions in your car, there would be less chances of accidents.
