If you habitually spend hours at the wheel, you know full well how difficult it can be to keep constant watch of signs, drive in heavy traffic or creep along if there is a tailback. The all-new OCTAVIA’s Travel Assist can help out. When this feature is activated, the car can adjust its speed according to the surrounding traffic and the speed limit, keep the car in lane, and stop and start in a traffic jam.
ADAPTIVE LANE ASSIST
Lane Assist can tell when you stray from a lane unintentionally. This system works in conjunction with a camera to recognise lane markings on the road, including yellow lines during roadworks, traffic cones, and other roadside or lane borders. The enhanced “Adaptive” variant means that the system intervenes in an attempt to keep the vehicle in the selected track within the traffic lane, and the car does not “weave”.
Using a rear-view mirror camera that detects light sources from oncoming vehicles, the Matrix function of the full LED headlights masks out the light distribution around other vehicles or traffic signs in real time with individually switchable LED chips in each headlight. This results in a perfectly illuminated road ahead and greater safety.
