The Ancira Volkswagen website details a number of new driver-assistance features built into the Arteon automobiles.
Those features include emergency assist, with built-in sensors that recognize when a driver may have fallen asleep. Audio signals and braking are used try to alert the driver, after a given amount of time, the system activates hazard warning lights and an emergency stopping system. Park assist and lane assist will guide the vehicle to a safe area to ensure other drivers on the road stay safe. Side assist ensures traffic is clear around the vehicle during this time as well.
A "pre-crash proactive occupant protection system" detects potential collisions at the front and rear of the vehicle, such as a speeding driver approaching from behind when stopped at a traffic light. The Arteon will automatically maneuver to prevent or minimize the crash as much as possible. Systems on all sides of the Arteon can detect the speed of both the Arteon and the approaching vehicle to automatically take the best course of action. Hazard lights will automatically turn on if the vehicle predicts a potential collision from the rear, and seatbelts will tighten up.
The Arteon is ideal for long-distance drives, according to the posting on the Ancira website. An optional adaptive cruise control (ACC) can integrate speed limits as well, taking over braking and acceleration duties. The Arteon ACC also keeps winding roads in mind, adjusting the speed as needed. ACC works thanks to a radar sensor and a camera in the windshield that can read upcoming street signs to determine the speed limit or detect curves.
