BMW X5: Evasion Assistant

Principle

The Evasion Assistant supports the driver in making evasive maneuvers in certain situations, such as when obstacles or persons suddenly appear.

General information

The system issues a warning and intervenes to support the driver if a lateral evasive maneuver is possible. Sensors monitor and detect the clearance around the vehicle. If the system identifies space alongside the vehicle, it supports an evasive maneuver begun by the driver by safely providing targeted supporting steering movements.

Safety information

Warning

The system cannot serve as a substitute for the driver's personal judgment in assessing visibility and traffic situation. There is a risk of accident.

Adjust driving style to traffic conditions. Watch traffic closely and actively intervene where appropriate.

Warning

Indicators and warnings cannot serve as a substitute for the driver's personal judgment. Due to its limits, the system may not issue warnings or reactions, or these may be issued late or in a manner that is not consistent with their normal use. There is a risk of accident. Adjust driving style to traffic conditions. Watch traffic closely and actively intervene where appropriate.

Overview

Sensors

The system is controlled by the following sensors:

Additional information: Sensors of the vehicle.

Functional requirements

Turning on/off

The system is automatically active when the vehicle is turned on.

Warning with evasion support

Display in the instrument cluster

If a collision with a detected vehicle or a detected person is imminent, a warning symbol appears on the instrument cluster and in the Head-up Display.

Icon lights up red: prewarning.

Brake and increase distance.

Symbol flashes red and an acoustic signal sounds: acute warning for obstacles.

Symbol flashes red and an acoustic signal sounds: acute warning for pedestrians.

Brake and make an evasive maneuver, if necessary.

Acute warning with evasion support

An acute warning is displayed when there is an imminent danger of collision due to the vehicle approaching another object at a high speed.

Intervene in the case of an acute warning. The system is designed to provide assistance by taking evasive action when there is a risk of collision.

Acute warnings may be provided even when there has been no prior warning.

System limits

Safety information

Warning

The system is designed to operate in certain conditions and circumstances. Due to conditions or other factors, the system may not respond.

There may be a risk of accident or risk of damage to property. Actively intervene as warranted. Refer to the information in this Owner's Manual regarding the scope of the system's operation and limitations.

Detection range

Safety

The system's detection capability is limited.

Only objects that are detected by the system are taken into account.

Thus, a system reaction might not come or might come late.

The following situations may not be detected, for example:
