The Right-Turn Assist system for passenger cars makes turning-off significantly safer and provides a welcome support for car drivers, especially in the complex situations that sometimes occur in urban traffic.
The new generation of radar sensors can detect a cyclist approaching from behind the vehicle on the right-hand side. Right-Turn Assist intervenes if the driver wants to turn right when the cyclist is just about to pass along the right-hand side of the vehicle. Drivers are not always able to recognize this risky situation, even when they look over their shoulders.
If the radar sensors detect a cyclist in such a situation, they transmit a signal to the brakes and the car stops before the car and cyclist collide. Needless to say, this safety function also protects pedestrians and scooter riders.
