New generation of assistance systems

The Arteon’s innovative driver assistance systems match its avant-garde concept. Significantly updated new generation versions of seven of these systems are available on the new gran turismo: Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Active Lighting System, Emergency Assist, proactive occupant protection system, Side Assist lane change system including Lane Assist lane departure warning, Rear Traffic Alert, and traffic sign recognition (which now also warns when speed limits are exceeded). Additional technologies adapted from other Volkswagens include the park distance warning, park assist steering, Rear View reversing camera system and Area View surround view camera. A detailed look at key assistance systems:

Active Lighting System

The gran turismo comes with LED headlights for the dipped and main beams as standard. The Arteon Elegance and Arteon R-Line also feature Light Assist automatic main beam control (camera-based system which automatically activates and deactivates the main beam in response to oncoming traffic). These two models can be optionally equipped with the Active Lighting System. The LED dual headlights perfectly illuminate the upcoming bend before the vehicle is even steered into it. Here’s how it works: the Active Lighting System – a technology package – utilises LED dual headlights with so-called projector lenses and incorporates among other features Dynamic Light Assist, the dynamically regulated permanent main beam function (interactive permanent main beam as an extended function of Light Assist) and dynamic cornering lights with predictive beam control. The latter steers the headlights into bends according to steering angle by means of variably controlled headlight modules. New with this feature is the ability to do this independently of steering angle and even predictively, using video information from the front camera and route information from the navigation system. In this manner, the gran turismo is able to illuminate the upcoming bend in the road before the driver steers into it. What’s more, the light pattern of the headlights is optimally adjusted to suit the radius of the curve, because light is not wasted illuminating the roadside.

Side Assist plus Lane Assist and Rear Traffic Alert

The Arteon comes with the Lane Assist lane departure warning system as standard. If the gran turismo is ordered with the optional Side Assist lane change system, which is activated from 10 km/h, the two systems are combined. In this case, Rear Traffic Alert will also be on board. The Side Assist package can help prevent serious accidents, particularly in the following two situations. First, on the motorway, because it detects both fast overtaking vehicles and slower ones in the blind spot, warns the driver and even countersteers via Lane Assist. The second situation relates to reversing out of a parking space: the sensors detect vehicles approaching from the side that are not visible to the driver.

Traffic Jam Assist

Volkswagen developed Traffic Jam Assist based on Lane Assist (lane departure warning system) and ACC. It is available for models with a dual clutch gearbox (DSG). The system makes traffic jams and stop-and-go driving much more comfortable. The interplay between assistance systems enables the new car to drive semi-autonomously at speeds up to 60 km/h. The basis for this system is Lane Assist and its functionality of adaptive lane guidance. The second assistance system integrated into Traffic Jam Assist is ACC, which performs automatic acceleration and braking.
