The “Advanced safety” system comprises:

- active emergency braking;

and

- emergency lane departure prevention.

The “Advanced safety” system uses information from the camera 1, front radar 2 and, depending on the vehicle, side radars 3.

Location of the camera 1

Make sure the windscreen is not obscured (by dirt, mud, snow, condensation etc.).

Location of the front radar 2

Ensure that the radar area is not obstructed (dirt, mud, snow, a badly fitted/attached front number plate), impacted, modified (including paintwork) or hidden by any accessory fitted on the front of the vehicle (on the front bumper, logo, etc.)

Location of the side radars 3

Ensure that the radar area is not obstructed (by dirt, mud, snow etc.), impacted or modified (including paintwork etc.).

Depending on the sensitivity setting selected, the “Lane crossing prevention” function may operate prior to operation of the “Emergency lane departure prevention” system.

This system provides an additional driving aid.

This system is not, under any circumstances, intended to replace the due care and attention of the driver, who should at all times be in control of the vehicle.

Activating, deactivating the system from the multimedia screen 4

From the “Vehicle” World on your multimedia screen 4, press the “Driving assistance” menu, then the “Advanced safety” menu to access the activation/deactivation of the function.

The warning light appears in yellow on the instrument panel when the system is deactivated.

When the system is activated, the warning light disappears.

This system is reactivated each time the ignition is switched on.

Active emergency braking

The system uses information from the radar 2 and the camera 1 to determine the distance from your vehicle:

- from the vehicle ahead in the same lane;

or

- from any oncoming vehicles in the context of a manoeuvre to change direction;

or

- surrounding pedestrians and cyclists.

The system informs the driver if there is a risk of head-on collision to enable appropriate emergency manoeuvres (pressing the brake pedal and/or turning the steering wheel).

Depending on the reactivity of the driver, the system can assist with braking in order to limit damage or prevent a collision.

This system can apply maximum braking to the vehicle until it is completely stationary if necessary.

For safety reasons, always wear your seat belt when travelling in your vehicle and make sure that it is loaded so that no items can be thrown forward and hit the occupants.

This function is an additional driving aid.

This function is not under any circumstances intended to replace the due care and attention of the driver, who should at all times be in control of the vehicle.

Active emergency braking

(continued)

Detection of vehicles

When driving, from approximately 5 mph (8 km/h), if there is a risk of collision with the vehicle in front or with a vehicle moving in the opposite direction when changing direction or with a stationary vehicle, the system will warn you of a risk of collision or may trigger braking.

Collision risk alert

The red warning light or, depending on the vehicle, the display 5 and the “Brake” message appears on the instrument panel, accompanied by a beep and a haptic warning (micro braking according to the sensitivity level and speed).

If the driver presses the brake pedal and the system still detects a risk of collision, the braking force may be increased if it is not sufficient to prevent the collision.

Triggering of braking

If the driver fails to react following the alert and collision becomes imminent.

If active emergency braking has caused the vehicle to stop, the vehicle is kept stationary for a short time. Beyond this time limit, the vehicle must be held stationary by the driver keeping their foot on the brake pedal.

Note: if the driver uses the vehicle controls (steering wheel, pedals, etc.) the system may delay certain operations or not activate.

In the event of emergency manoeuvre, you can stop braking at any moment by:

- tapping the accelerator pedal;

or

- turning the steering wheel as a collision avoidance manoeuvre.

Active emergency braking

(continued)

Special features of oncoming vehicles in the context of a manoeuvre to change direction

When you wish to change direction (e.g. A), oncoming vehicles travelling at approximately 18 mph (30 km/h) to 35 mph (55 km/h) are detected by the system when:

- your vehicle is travelling at a speed between approximately 5 mph (8 km/h) to 12 mph (20 km/h);

- you have activated the direction indicator light.

The system is otherwise inactive and does not trigger an alert.

Special features of stationary vehicles

Stationary vehicles are detected when your vehicle is being driven at a speed between approximately 5 mph (8 km/h) and 50 mph (80 km/h). The system is not active and does not emit a warning for stationary vehicles when you exceed approximately 50 mph (80 km/h).

Special features of warnings

Depending on the speed, the warning and braking may be activated simultaneously.

This function is an additional driving aid.

This function is not under any circumstances intended to replace the due care and attention of the driver, who should at all times be in control of the vehicle.

Active emergency braking

(continued)

Detection of pedestrians and cyclists

When driving at a speed between approximately 5 mph (8 km/h) and 53 mph (85 km/h), if there is a risk of collision with a cyclist or pedestrian, the system:

- warns you of a collision risk:

the red warning light, or, depending on the vehicle, the display 5 and the message “Brake” appear on the instrument panel, accompanied by a beep.

If the driver presses the brake pedal and the system still detects a risk of collision, the braking force may be increased if it is not sufficient to prevent the collision;

- may trigger braking:

if the driver fails to react following the alert and collision becomes imminent.

If active emergency braking has caused the vehicle to stop, the vehicle is kept stationary for a short time. Beyond this time limit, the vehicle must be held stationary by the driver keeping their foot on the brake pedal.

Note: if the driver uses the vehicle controls (steering wheel, pedals, etc.) the system may delay certain operations or not activate.

In the event of emergency manoeuvre, you can stop braking at any moment by:

- tapping the accelerator pedal;

or

- turning the steering wheel as a collision avoidance manoeuvre.

Active emergency braking

(continued)

Settings

From the "Vehicle” World on your multimedia screen 4, press the “Driving assistance” menu, then the “Advanced safety” menu to access the following settings:

“Warning anticipation”: adjust the alert sensitivity level. To do this select:

- “Late”;

- “Standard”;

- “Early”.

Temporarily not available

If the system detects a temporary fault the warning light illuminates, or depending on the vehicle, the warning light illuminates in yellow on the instrument panel.

The possible causes are:

- the system is temporarily blinded (glare from the sun, dipped beam headlights, bad weather conditions etc.). The system will be operational again when visibility conditions are better;

- the system is temporarily interrupted (e.g. the windscreen, front or rear bumper or logo is obscured by dirt, mud, snow, condensation, etc.). In this case, park the vehicle and switch off the engine. Clean the windscreen and front bumper. The next time the engine is started, after five or ten minutes of driving, the warning light and the message disappear.

If this is not the case, this may arise from another cause; contact an Approved Dealer.

Operating faults

When the function detects an operating fault, the warning lights © and or, depending on the vehicle, © and , appear in yellow on the instrument panel accompanied by the message “Check Front camera” or “Front radar to check” or “Check Driving assist “.

Consult an approved dealer.

Active emergency braking

This function is an additional driving aid. This function is not under any circumstances intended to replace the due care and attention of the driver, who should at all times be in control of the vehicle. The triggering of this function may be delayed or prevented when the system detects clear signs of control of the vehicle by the driver (action on the steering wheel, pedals etc.).

The system cannot be activated:

- if the gear control is in neutral position;

- when the parking brake is activated;

- when the Electronic Stability Program (ESC) has been triggered.

System servicing/repairs

- In the event of an impact, the radar and/or camera alignment may be changed and its operation may consequently be affected. Deactivate the function and consult an authorised dealer.

- Any work in the area where the radar and/or camera is located (repairs, replacements, windscreen modifications, etc.) must be carried out by a qualified professional.

Only an authorised dealer is qualified to service the system.

System disturbance

Some conditions can disturb or damage the operation of the system, such as:

- a complex environment (metal bridge, tunnel etc.);

- poor weather conditions (snow, rain, hail, black ice etc.);

- poor visibility (night, fog etc.);

- poor contrast between the object (vehicle, pedestrian etc.) and the surrounding area (e.g. pedestrian dressed in white located in a snowy area etc.) ;

- being dazzled (glaring sun, lights of vehicles travelling in the opposite direction etc.);

- windscreen obscured (by dirt, ice, snow, condensation etc.);

- ...

In these conditions, the system may not react, may warn the driver or may brake inadvertently.

Limitation of the system operation

- Each time the vehicle is started, the system carries out a calibration according to the vehicle surroundings and may be inactive for a length of time between approximately two to five minutes of driving;

- an oncoming vehicle will not trigger any warning or system action if the conditions in the paragraph “Special features of oncoming vehicles in the context of a manoeuvre to change direction” are not met (see previous pages);

- the radar and camera zones must be kept clean and free of any modifications in order to ensure the proper operation of the system;

- the system may not respond to small vehicles such as motorbikes as effectively as to other vehicles;

- the system may not operate properly when the road surface is slippery (rain, snow, black ice, etc.);

- to ensure correct operation, the system needs to distinguish the complete outline of the pedestrian. So the system cannot detect:

- pedestrians in the darkness or in poor lighting conditions;

- partially visible pedestrians:

- pedestrians less than approximately 80 cm tall;

- pedestrians carrying large objects;

- ...

In these conditions, the system may not react, may warn the driver or may brake inadvertently.

Deactivating the function

You must disable the function if:

- the brake lights are not functioning;

- the area of the camera has been damaged (e.g. on the inside or outside of the windscreen);

- the front of the vehicle was damaged (impact, distortion, scratch on the radar etc.);

- the vehicle is being towed (breakdowns);

- the windscreen is cracked or distorted (do not carry out windscreen repairs in this area; have it changed by an approved dealer);

- you are not driving on a paved road;

- the vehicle is on a roller bench in a workshop.

In the event of the system behaving abnormally, deactivate it and consult an authorised dealer.

Halting the function

You can halt the active braking function at any time by tapping the accelerator pedal or by turning the steering wheel in a collision avoidance manoeuvre.

Emergency lane departure prevention

Using information from the camera 1, the function triggers corrective action on the vehicle steering system when approaching the roadside (divider, barrier, pavement, embankment etc.) without the direction indicator light having been activated.

Using information from the radar 2 and the camera 1, the function triggers corrective action on the vehicle steering system in the event of a risk of collision with a vehicle coming from the opposite direction in the adjacent lane, without the direction indicator having been activated.

Depending on the vehicle, using information from the radars 3 and the camera 1, the function triggers corrective action on the vehicle steering system. In the event of a risk of collision with a vehicle moving at the same speed or a higher speed, located in the detection area of the rear radars (emergency lane departure prevention in case of overtaking).

You can retake control of the vehicle at any time by operating the steering wheel.

This system provides an additional driving aid.

This system is not, under any circumstances, intended to replace the due care and attention of the driver, who should at all times be in control of the vehicle.

Emergency lane departure prevention

(continued)

Roadside detection

When driving from approximately 5 mph (8 km/h), when approaching the roadside (central reservation, barrier, pavement, embankment, etc.), without the direction indicator having been activated, the system:

- warns you of a collision risk:

the 6 symbol lights up on the instrument panel accompanied by the message “Lane departure”;

and

- triggers corrective action on the steering system.

Special feature

In the event the function operates repeatedly when approaching the roadside, if the system does not detect any hands on the steering wheel, the warning light appears in yellow on the instrument panel accompanied by the “Keep control” message.

This function is an additional driving aid.

This function is not under any circumstances intended to replace the due care and attention of the driver, who should at all times be in control of the vehicle.

Emergency lane departure prevention

(continued)

Detection of an oncoming vehicle

When driving at a speed between approximately 40 mph (65 km/h) and 68 mph (110 km/h), if there is a risk of collision with a vehicle coming from the opposite direction in an adjacent lane and within the detection zone B, without the direction indicator having been activated, the system:

- warns you of a collision risk:

the red warning light and the display 6 light up on the instrument panel accompanied by the message “Risk of collision” and a beep;

and

- triggers corrective action on the steering system.

You can interrupt the trajectory correction at any time by moving the steering wheel.

This function is an additional driving aid.

This function is not under any circumstances intended to replace the due care and attention of the driver, who should at all times be in control of the vehicle.

Emergency lane departure prevention (continued)

If case of overtaking

(depending on the vehicle)

While driving from approximately 5 mph (8 km/h), when approaching a line (continuous or broken) and there is a risk of collision with a vehicle located in the blind spot C moving in the same direction as your vehicle or with a vehicle that is rapidly approaching from behind in an adjacent lane that is in the detection area D, the system:

- warns you of the risk of collision: the 7 warning light flashes, the warning light appears in red and the 6 symbol lights up on the instrument panel accompanied by the “Lateral obstacle detected” message and a beep;

and

- triggers corrective action on the steering system.
