BMW 7 Series: Introduction

Multifunction Video Camera

With the F01/F02, the customer is able to choose from a comprehensive range of optional driver assistance systems.

The individual systems and function units are becoming ever more densely networked as a result of the shared use of components and signals in some areas.

Depending on the combination of the available options installed, the functions in the F01/F02 are implemented as camera-based systems, both sharing the same camera and the one control unit, the KAFAS control unit.

KAFAS is the Camera Assisted Driver Assistance System.

KAFAS is used for the following combined functions:

  • Lane departure warning
  • High-beam assistant.

FLA (high beam assistant) is part of the ZDA Driver Assistance Package option and will not be available separately on the F01/F02.

The ZDA Driver Assistance Package option includes the following:

  • High-beam Assistant
  • Lane Departure Warning
  • Active Blind Spot Detection

The vehicle comes fitted with the KAFAS control unit and camera. The high-beam assistant option shares the KAFAS camera and the KAFAS control unit with the lane departure warning system.
