In traffic jam situations on motorways, the traffic jam assist will brake to a standstill behind a stopping vehicle and then move off automatically again. It will guide the vehicle continuously and safely through any traffic jam by gentle steering interventions.
A video camera installed behind the windscreen and a radar sensor in the bumper capture the traffic and lane markings.
In the event of a traffic jam or stationary traffic, the MAN Traffic Jam Assist will automatically control the drive and brakes. The traffic jam assist maintains a constant distance to the vehicle ahead down to a standstill. If the traffic jam takes only a short time, it will move off again automatically.
In addition to maintaining the distance to the vehicle in front, the traffic jam assist also keeps the vehicle in the lane by means of gentle steering interventions. To accomplish this, the system scans the lane markings.
