Some of the key MG Astor ADAS Features are described as follows:
Lane Keep Assist, Lane Departure Prevention, Lane Departure Warning – For these functions, the multipurpose camera identifies lane markings and warns you in case the vehicle is deviating from the lane. It also actively keeps the vehicle in the centre of the lane, reducing your steering effort, by controlling the steering.
Forward Collision Prevention
Front Collision Warning, Automatic Emergency Braking – Forward Collision Prevention system alerts the driver about a probable collision with a four-wheeler, two-wheeler or a pedestrian when the gap becomes too close. In case the driver takes no action on the alert then the vehicle applies autonomous deceleration.
Rear Drive Assist
Blind Spot Detection. Lane Change Assist. Rear Cross-Traffic Alert – Read Drive-Assist functions help in continuous monitoring of vehicle’s surroundings to eliminate any blind spots; be it overtaking or side-lane strafing. While reversing, if there’s a vehicle coming from the crossroad and a possible hazard is detected, the system alerts the driver through visual and acoustic signals.
Speed Assist System
Speed Warning, Intelligent, Manual – Speed Assist System will monitor traffic signs on the road from which it is possible to infer speed limit. The system alerts the driver in case of over-speeding through visual and acoustic means. It can also slow down the car to the speed limit automatically in intelligent mode.
Adaptive Cruise Control
Adaptive Cruise Control is an advanced version of cruise control. It senses and monitors the road ahead and automatically accelerates/decelerates for maintaining a proper distance from the vehicle in front.
Intelligent Headlamp Control
Intelligent Headlamp Control activates and deactivates the high-beam, depending on the oncoming traffic and environment situation. Thus preventing other road users from blinding due to high-beam.
