Within system limits, Audi pre sense front scans the area in front of the vehicle using the front radar and provides the driver with visual and acoustic warnings of any potentially hazardous situation due to stationary vehicles or vehicles travelling ahead. If the driver does not react, the system gives a brief jolt of the brakes to regain the driver’s attention. If there is still no reaction, Audi pre sense front performs automatic full braking within system limits. This helps to reduce the severity of the collision or avoid it altogether.

Pedestrian and cyclist detection registers, within system limits, if a pedestrian or cyclist is moving on the road or crossing it. The system then warns the driver with an acoustic and visual signal. At the same time, the system prepares for possible full braking and, if it should become necessary, initiates automated emergency braking to prevent a collision as far as possible or reduce its severity.
