Emergency Braking

The available Emergency Braking system utilizes a forward-facing camera to watch for a potential collision. If one is detected, the vehicle gives an audible forward collision warning. Visual warnings in the Head-Up Display (if fitted) and instrument cluster are also displayed. If a collision is still anticipated and the driver takes no action, the system is designed to then apply the brakes to help reduce the severity of the possible impact.4


Advance Parking Aids**

These systems make parking in tight spaces easier than ever. Sensors measure the space and, if suitable, will enable XF to accurately steer itself during both parallel and bay parking maneuvres - the driver only has to control the brakes and accelerator. For parallel spaces, an exit-assist function can help guide XF out again. The reverse traffic detection system, using the blind spot monitoring system's sensors, is able to detect approaching vehicles that may be unseen by the driver, triggering an audible alert and a notification on the Touch-screen.


Traffic Sign Recognition with Intelligent Speed Limiter

Available Traffic Sign Recognition technology uses a forward-facing camera to detect speed limit and no passing road signs, and then displays them to the driver on the instrument panel. This system takes account of temporary speed limits. The Intelligent Speed Limiter, if activated, will use the signage information, alongside map data from the navigation system, to help keep the XF under the appropriate speed limit.4


Blind Spot Monitor & Blind Spot Assist

The Blind Spot Monitor (optional) uses radar sensors to cover areas difficult to see when you're driving - either directly or rapidly approaching in your blind spot. If it detects cars overtaking, it warns you via an amber icon in the appropriate door mirror.4 In addition to Blind Spot Monitor, available Blind Spot Assist can help prevent collisions. If your car detects another vehicle in your blind spot when you begin to change lanes, Blind Spot Assist provides a precisely calculated opposing steering torque - guiding the vehicle safely away from the approaching vehicle.
