BMW 7 Series: Intersection collision warning

Concept

The system may prevent some accidents with cross traffic at intersections and junctions. In the event of an accident, the system may reduce impact speed.

The system sounds a warning in the city speed range before an imminent collision and activates brakes independently, if needed.

General information

The system is controlled by the following sensors:

  • Camera in the area of the interior mirror.
  • Radar sensors on the side in the front bumper.
  • Radar sensor in the center in the front bumper.

At intersections and junctions, a warning is issued when a danger of collision with crossing traffic is detected.

The system issues a two-phase warning of a possible risk of collision with vehicles at speeds above approx. 6 mph/10 km/h. The timing of warnings may vary with the current driving situation.

The Driver Attention Camera in the instrument cluster captures the driver's field of vision. Additionally, the system checks for visual impairments.

Field of vision and visibility also affect the timing of the warnings.

Detection range

Vehicles that cross your direction of travel can be detected by the system as soon as these vehicles enter into the detection range of the system.

Safety information

Warning


The system cannot serve as a substitute for the driver's personal judgment in assessing visibility and traffic situation. There is a risk of accident.

Adjust driving style to traffic conditions. Watch traffic closely and actively intervene where appropriate.

Warning


Indicators and warnings cannot serve as a substitute for the driver's personal judgment. Due to its limits, the system may not issue warnings or reactions, or these may be issued late or in a manner that is not consistent with their normal use. There is a risk of accident. Adjust driving style to traffic conditions. Watch traffic closely and actively intervene where appropriate.

Warning


Due to system limits, individual functions can malfunction during tow-starting/towing with the Intelligent Safety systems activated. There is a risk of accident. Switch all Intelligent Safety systems off prior to tow-starting/towing.
