Active City Stop is designed to prevent collisions at lower speeds, particularly in built up areas like towns or cities where these sort of accidents are more commonly experienced. When your vehicle is equipped with Active City Stop, it will monitor the road ahead of you for slow moving traffic and stopped vehicles. If it detects a collision as likely, the brakes will be implemented and engine torque reduced in order to help reduce speed and subsequent collision. Relative speed between your vehicle and any you're following is also considered with appropriate actions being taken.
Active City Stop utilises a LIDAR (light detection and ranging) sensor array in order to monitor and detect the potential hazards that may occur. These sensors are positioned at the top of the windscreen and continuously scans the road ahead. To find out more about Active City Stop, contact Birchwood Ford today.
