Audi offers more than 30 driver assist systems in the new RS 6 Avant**, each of which makes driving even more comfortable, efficient and safe. Some of the systems are bundled into the “city” and “tour” packages.
The adaptive cruise assist (ACA) is the most important system in the “tour” assist package. It adds a lane-tracking function that also helps out in traffic jams to the adaptive cruise control (ACC). At speeds between 0 and 250 km/h (155.3 mph), the system keeps the new Audi RS 6 Avant at the desired distance to the vehicle ahead. It also makes slight steering corrections to help the driver to stay in the lane.
Another highlight is the emergency assist, which provides for greater safety. It detects when the driver is inactive and provides a visual, acoustic, or haptic warning depending on the hazard. If this does not prompt a reaction, the system takes control of the RS 6 Avant and automatically stops it in its own lane with the hazard warning lights on. This also activates pre sense safety measures and, depending on the country, triggers an automatic emergency call.
With the City package, five systems assist the driver: The crossing assist warns of critical cross-traffic in front of the car, and Audi pre sense 360° warns of vehicles approaching from the side. The rear cross traffic assist detects approaching vehicles when slowly driving backwards, for example when pulling out of a parking spot perpendicular to the road. Exit warning and lane change warning supplement the package.
The Audi pre sense basic and Audi pre sense front safety systems are standard. The Audi pre sense rear system can be added as an option. They detect collision hazards all around the car and initiate targeted preventive measures – whether maximum braking, adjusting the seats or tightening the belts. Audi pre sense front includes a warning and braking function for vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists.
Behind the assistance systems in the new RS 6 Avant are the central driver assistance controller (zFAS) and a portfolio of sensors that complement each other with their respective strengths. The data from the various sensors flow together in the zFAS. With its high-end processors, the tablet-sized computer continually computes a differentiated image of the vehicle’s surroundings. This centralized environment model enables the assistance systems to further improve their performance compared to the predecessor model, for example, when they detect the end of a traffic jam and initiate braking. Also, navigation is even more precise, because the computer uses the sensor data fusion to locate your own car down to the exact lane.
