INTRODUCCIÓN DEL MODO SEGUIMIENTO

WARNING

When in follow mode, the vehicle may not decelerate automatically to a stop, nor will the vehicle always decelerate quickly enough to avoid a collision.

Once a set speed has been selected, the driver can release the accelerator pedal and the set road speed is maintained.

If a vehicle ahead enters the same lane, or a slower vehicle is ahead in the same lane, the vehicle’s speed is automatically adjusted. Adjusting the vehicle speed maintains the gap setting to the vehicle ahead. The vehicle is now in follow mode.

The follow mode warning lamp illuminates to confirm follow mode is operational. See MODO SEGUIMIENTO (ÁMBAR).

The instrument panel displays the gap, set in the form of a vehicle with a varying number of bars in front of it.

The vehicle then maintains the constant time gap to the vehicle ahead until:

  • The vehicle ahead accelerates to a speed above the set speed.

  • The vehicle ahead moves out of lane or out of view.

  • A new gap setting is chosen.

If necessary, the vehicle's brakes are automatically applied, slowing the vehicle and maintaining the gap to the vehicle in front.

The maximum braking which is applied by the adaptive cruise control system is limited and can be overridden by the driver applying the brakes, if required.

NOTES

Driver braking cancels adaptive cruise control.

If the adaptive cruise control system predicts that its maximum braking level is not sufficient, a warning sounds while the system continues to brake. The instrument panel displays the message DRIVER INTERVENE. Take immediate action.

When in follow mode, the vehicle automatically returns to the set speed when the road ahead is clear. For instance when:

  • The vehicle ahead accelerates to a speed above the set speed or changes lane.

  • A lane change manoeuvre is performed into a lane on either side of the vehicle, or the vehicle enters an exit lane.

The driver should intervene, if appropriate.

If a direction indicator is used, adaptive cruise control reduces the gap to the vehicle ahead so as to respond more quickly to the anticipated manoeuvre. If a manoeuvre is not actioned, the previous gap is restored after a few seconds. Enhanced response may not occur if adaptive cruise control detects that it is inappropriate. For example, you are already too close to the vehicle ahead or you are already in another lane.
