They are assuming an ever-increasing number of tasks from the driver, making driving more comfortable. The traffic jam assist already makes stressful stop-and-go driving in congestion easier for the driver. In future models, the congestion pilot will be able to take over this task completely, making things even less stressful for the driver. And assistance systems can save fuel by using predictive route data and adjusting the car for the road ahead.
Many Audi models come standard with assistance systems that enhance both comfort and safety. Take the preventive system Audi pre sense city in the Audi Q7, for example: A front-facing camera recognizes a potential collision. The system warns the driver and initiates emergency braking, if necessary. Our cars are becoming smarter and smarter, and thus also safer and safer. The long-term objective of this development is a vehicle that avoids accidents. But assistance systems can do even more.
