Driving Innovation Through Driver Assists

Controls & Driver Focus Aids

Controls and driver focus aids can help you drive better in all kinds of situations.

Integrated Systems

Integrated Systems (often called “telematics”) help drivers keep their eyes on the road and hands on the wheel through special controls on steering wheels, optimized screens, voice command systems, hands-free calling and concierge services.

Real-Time Navigation

Real-time navigation allows drivers to re-route around traffic and congestion, saving fuel and reducing carbon emissions.

Warning and Alert Systems

Warning and alert systems use radar, sensors and/or cameras to detect objects and give drivers an audible, visual or haptic warning.

Blind Spot Monitoring

Blind Spot Monitoring warns you that another vehicle is in the lane beside you.

Lane Departure Warning

Lane Departure Warning detects lane markings on a roadway and notifies you if you drift out of your lane.

Active Controls

Active controls can engage automatic, temporary braking and may allow you to turn them off or control their sensitivity.

Adaptive Cruise Control

Adaptive Cruise Control automatically keeps a safe distance from the car ahead, keeping traffic running smoothly with less braking and accelerating.

Automatic Braking technology

Automatic braking technology helps drivers avoid crashes or reduce crash severity, and fewer fender benders improve fuel economy since drivers spend less time idling in traffic.
