DETECTION OF ROAD SIGNS

The system detects speed limit signs on the side of the road and displays the speed limit on the instrument panel.

It mainly uses information taken from the camera 1, attached to the windscreen behind the rear view mirror.

Note: make sure the windscreen is not obscured (dirt, mud, snow, condensation etc.).

For vehicles which are equipped with it, the system also uses information from the navigation system.

Once the speed limiter or cruise control is activated, you can adjust the speed limiter indication displayed by the system.

If the limit speed is exceeded, the display panel is modified to warn the driver.

For vehicles with a subscription and if the vehicle is travelling in a country where the speed units differ from those of the vehicle, the system displays the speed limit sign in the unit of the country, alongside the speed limit converted to the unit used by the vehicle’s instrument panel.

For countries where the speed limit is reduced during rainy weather on some types of roads, on vehicles with a subscription, the system can modify the limited speed after a few seconds of wiping the windscreen.

Special situations

The system does not take into account exceptional speed limit measures, such as peak pollution days.

Road sign detection is associated with a subscription.

If there is no subscription, the system will be limited to taking into account the speed limit signs when they are detected by the camera.

The system will no longer take into account information relating to the navigation system map.

The speed limit availability may be affected.

To manage the subscription, please refer to the multimedia instructions.

Operation

Warning lights

The function displays the following warning lights:

3 Speed limit signs and additional speed limit signs (speed on exit ramp with arrow, speed with a caravan, speed limit with length of application, etc.)

4 Additional road signs (start of no overtaking zone).

If the speed limit is exceeded, the circle around the panel flashes (warning light 3) along with a sound signal to warn the driver.

Varying the limit speed

If the speed limiter, cruise control or adaptive cruise control setting differs from the speed detected, change the speed value by pressing the 5 switch.

For safety reasons, carry out any adjustments while the vehicle is stationary.

Operating faults

The system cannot detect the speed limit if:

- the windscreen is not clean;

- the camera is blinded by the sun;

- there is insufficient visibility (night, fog etc.);

- the signs are not legible (snow, etc.) or are hidden (by another vehicle or by trees);

- the information taken from the navigation system is not up to date.

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 driver should always adapt their speed to the traffic conditions, regardless of the system indications.

The system detects speed limit signs and does not detect other signs (e.g. entry/exit to/from urban areas, etc.).

The system may not detect all speed limit signs or may interpret them incorrectly.

The driver should not ignore signs that are not detected by the system and should, as a priority, comply with the traffic signage and the highway code.

In the event of poor visibility (fog, snow, frost, etc.), it is possible that the system may not indicate the correct speed to the driver.

The driver should always adapt their speed to the traffic conditions, regardless of the system indications.
