Audi Q8 e-tron cross traffic assist rear
Audi Q8 e-tron can be equipped with cross traffic assist rear. Cross traffic assist rear warns the driver of approaching vehicles it deems critical when slowly backing up, such as when pulling out of a perpendicular parking spot.
It uses the rear radar sensors for this. They cover the zone at the rear, including the driving lanes to the left and right behind the vehicle. The warnings are progressive – initially a visual warning is shown in the MMI display (in the park assist display). The situation is represented in a virtual top view and in the “rear” and “rear side” camera views. Red arrows behind the vehicle point in the direction from which there is a potential hazard. If the driver does not react to the visual display, an audible signal sounds before the system warns the driver with a brake jolt. This helps to avoid accidents while exiting parking spaces.
This is part of the city assistance package with option id PCM
