Emergency Steer Assist
In some dangerous situations, a targeted evasive maneuver offers a chance to prevent a crash even if the driver has no time left for emergency braking. The Emergency Steer Assist function assists the driver in these critical driving situations and helps to keep the vehicle stable. This is made possible by interaction between ESC, the electric steering, and driver assistance sensors. If the driver decides to take evasive action, Emergency Steer Assist calculates in milliseconds what line the optimum evasive maneuver could follow, termed the vehicle movement trajectory. To ensure that the vehicle remains stable, the evasive action is supported by a smooth steering movement.
