Traffic jam assist helps drivers arrive more relaxed at their destination, even in dense traffic or in traffic jams. As a partially automated comfort function, the system takes over the longitudinal and lateral guidance of the vehicle. This means that the car can drive off, accelerate and brake automatically, as well as steer the vehicle within certain constraints. The driver has to permanently supervise the system and be ready to take over the complete control of the vehicle at any time.
The traffic jam assist system helps to avoid rear-end collisions in dense traffic and traffic jams.
In traffic jams, the vehicle takes over driving off, acceleration, braking and steering within the same lane.
