RECONOCIMIENTO DE SEÑALES DE TRÁFICO

WARNING

The traffic sign recognition system is a driving aid only. Responsibility remains the driver's to drive with due care and attention. Drive in a manner which is safe for the vehicle, its occupants, and other road users. The driver should still observe all road signs and road markings.

The traffic sign recognition system uses the forward-facing camera, located in the rear-view mirror. The camera detects speed signs, no overtaking signs, and variable overhead speed signs. Symbols of the detected signs are displayed in the message centre and the Head-Up Display (HUD). Traffic signs with extra information, e.g., reduced speed limits, are also detected and compared with the vehicle’s operating systems. When no speed limit signs are detected, relevant speed limit information from the navigation system is displayed in the message centre and the HUD.

NOTES

When the standard road navigation is not available, the traffic sign recognition system uses the forward-facing camera only. In this circumstance, system performance may be limited.

NOTES

Make sure that the windscreen area in front of the rear-view mirror is kept clean and free of obstructions. For example, stickers, debris, mud, snow, ice, etc.

The traffic sign recognition system can be switched on and off via Driver Assistance in the instrument panel menu. See MENÚ DEL CUADRO DE INSTRUMENTOS.

The system operates up to the vehicle's maximum speed.

The three basic functions of the traffic sign recognition system are as follows:

  • Speed Limit Detection: A corresponding sign is displayed in the message centre.

  • Speed Alert: When the vehicle's speed is greater than the detected speed limit, a warning is displayed. The message centre displays a flashing red ring around the detected speed limit sign. Speed alert can be switched on or off, or the settings can be adjusted to display three different settings:

    When the vehicle's speed equals the detected speed limit.

    When the vehicle's speed is 10 km/h (5 mph) above the detected speed limit.

    When the vehicle's speed is 20 km/h (10 mph) above the detected speed limit.

  • No Overtaking Zone: When a no overtaking sign is detected, the system also displays a corresponding sign in the message centre.

NOTES

The traffic sign recognition system does not detect road markings or situations with no signage, e.g., railway crossings, etc.

Traffic sign recognition limitations:

The system may provide false information or function incorrectly in the following conditions:

  • The windscreen area in front of the camera is covered by a sticker, misted over, dirty, covered in snow or mud, etc.

  • Travelling in adverse weather conditions. For example, heavy fog, rain, snow, etc.

  • Travelling in an area not covered by the navigation system.

  • Driving toward very bright lights.

  • Concealed or covered signage.

  • Non-conforming road signs.

  • Navigation information is incorrect.
