The Emergency Assist becomes active, when the driver is unable to control the car. If the system detects no steering wheel movement or other activity over a specific time period, a message appears on the instrument panel display, warning signal sounds and a short braking occurs during the warning cascade all while keeping the vehicle in its current lane. If you still do not react, the system starts braking (with hazard warning lights activated) and the car comes to a stop automatically (parking brake activated afterwards). Emergency Assist functions in combination with driver assistance systems 2 and 5 (prerequisite for the proper function), as well as automatically applied dual-clutch transmission (DSG).
CREW PROTECT ASSIST
This feature coordinates the activities of the onboard systems to minimise emergency traffic situations. The system pre-tensions the front seat belts in the event of unstable driving situations, such as severe over- or understeering, and also engages with the ESC to close the side windows and sunroof almost fully in order to prevent foreign objects from entering the vehicle.
If the airbag control unit reports major accident the vehicle automatically initiates either a connection to the ŠKODA Emergency Centre (Emergency Call) or calls 112 (eCall). The system also transmits data about the vehicle position, the direction of travel, the number of passengers and the seriousness of the collision. This feature delivers prompt professional emergency assistance. Emergency Call/eCal is part of the ŠKODA Connect range of services.
