Traffic Sign Assist

The daily routine and road traffic are stressful enough. That's why this Assist function is so useful. Your vehicle always has an overview of the current speed limit. Particularly useful on long or monotonous motorway journeys. The system is able to recognise speed limits, "no-entry" and "no-overtaking" signs and their cancellation, and show them in the instrument cluster. If the appropriate signs are posted, the system issues a visual and audible warning when the driver enters a one-way street against the specified direction of travel.

The camera on the inside of the front windscreen captures signed speed limits, including those on gantry signs or in roadworks, for example. The data are compared with the data held in the navigation system and can be displayed both on the instrument display and in the map view. Overtaking signs and their discontinuation signs are also registered and displayed. In addition, for no-entry signs, a visual and audible warning is issued in the instrument display (wrong-way warning) – an effective contribution towards preventing serious accidents caused by wrong-way drivers.
