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.
The feature can tell when a driver strays from a lane unintentionally, providing a visual message in the instrument cluster and initiating corrective steering. The system is active on condition that there are recognisable lane markings on the road and the indicator has not been turned on prior to crossing a marking.
TRAFFIC SIGN RECOGNITION
The system processes speed limit signs, no overtaking signs and any supplementary instructions, and associated restriction clearance signs. They are shown as pictograms in the instrument cluster and/or the navigation system display.
Driver Alert reduces the risk of a fatigue-induced emergency situation. By monitoring driver behaviour, the system assesses the degree of driver fatigue and, if necessary, warns of the need for a rest and break in the journey.
