Driving Assist

Collision avoidance and a more delightful driving experience

Driving Assist

Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA)

Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) is a driving safety system that prevents the vehicle from colliding into obstacles lying ahead by warning the driver and controlling the vehicle’s braking and steering functions if its sensors detect any risk factors.

FCA uses its front view camera and front radar to compute the relative position and speed of obstacles (vehicles, pedestrians, cyclists) in front of the vehicle. If it believes the vehicle will collide with an obstacle that lie ahead, the system warns the driver with visual and audible alarms while taking over control of the vehicle’s braking and steering.

FCA also prevents the vehicle from colliding with other vehicles that are switching lanes or approaching from the opposite direction. Moreover, when turning at intersections, the system uses its front view camera/ front radar to prevent the driver from crashing into vehicles traveling on the opposite side of the road.

Lane Keeping Assist (LKA)

Lane Keeping Assist (LKA) is a driving convenience and safety system that prevents accidents by warning the driver and controlling the vehicle’s steering function if its sensors detect that the vehicle is departing from its current lane.

LKA detects the vehicle’s current lane and the edges of the lane using its front view camera, and checks whether the driver has activated the turn indicators. If the system determines that the vehicle is departing from its lane unintentionally, the system warns the driver with visual, audible and tactile alarms while also steering the vehicle back into the intended lane.

Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA)

Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA) is a driving convenience and safety system that prevents the vehicle from colliding into vehicles in the adjacent lane or coming from behind when the driver switches lanes by warning the driver and controlling the vehicle’s braking and steering functions.

BCA uses its front view camera and rear corner radars to compute the relative position and speed of other vehicles on the side or in the blind-spot zone of the vehicle. If it believes the vehicle will collide with other vehicles, the system warns the driver with visual and audible alarms while automatically engaging the vehicle’s brakes to prevent the collision.

High Beam Assist (HBA)

High Beam Assist (HBA) is a driving convenience and safety system that minimizes glare and secures maximum forward visibility for the driver during the night and in low-light conditions by controlling the vehicle’s high-beam function.

HBA uses its front view camera to identify light emitted by other vehicles in front, vehicles traveling in the opposite lane and streetlamps. If light coming from other sources is detected, the system deactivates the high beams. If no light emitted by other sources is detected, the high beams are automatically activated.

Low Beam Assist (LBA)

Low Beam Assist (LBA) is a driving convenience and safety system that maximizes forward visibility for the driver during the night and in low-light conditions by controlling additional lamps available on the vehicle and the direction of the low beams.

LBA considers the speed, steering angle and yaw rate of the vehicle to activate or deactivate additional lamps and turn the low beams to the left or right.

Smart Cruise Control (SCC)

Smart Cruise Control (SCC) is a driving convenience and safety system that reduces driver burden by automatically accelerating or decelerating the vehicle to maintain the driver’s pre-set speed and to keep a safe distance from the vehicle traveling directly ahead.

SCC maintains the speed specified by the driver and computes the relative position and speed of the vehicle directly ahead using its front view camera and front radar to ensure a safe distance between the two vehicles. The system controls acceleration and deceleration to make sure that the driver’s vehicle stops when the other vehicle ahead stops. When the vehicle ahead starts moving again, the driver’s vehicle automatically starts moving as well.

Lane Following Assist (LFA)

Lane Following Assist (LFA) is a driving convenience and safety system that reduces driver burden by controlling the steering function of the vehicle to keep it moving along the center of its current lane. 

LFA identifies the vehicle’s current lane and the lane boundaries using its front view camera, then automatically steers the vehicle to keep it in the middle of the lane whenever it detects that the vehicle is unintentionally veering out of the lane.

Highway Driving Assist (HDA)

Highway Driving Assist (HDA) is a driving convenience and safety system that reduces driver burden on highways and motorways by controlling the vehicle’s steering, acceleration and deceleration functions to maintain the speed set by the driver, keep a safe distance from the vehicle directly ahead, and keep the vehicle in the center of its current lane.

HDA uses navigational information to determine whether the vehicle is on a highway or motorway. When the vehicle is on a highway or motorway, HDA maintains the speed set by the driver or the speed limit of the highway or motorway. At the same time, it considers the lane information collected through its front view camera, and relative position and speed of the vehicle directly ahead computed using its front view camera and front radar, to control steering, acceleration and deceleration while keeping a safe distance from the vehicle ahead.
