One intended benefit of the lane departure systems
being developed by Visteon, Valeo and Delphi is that they will encourage drivers to use their indicators.
The Lane Departure System
recognises lane markings by the use of a small camera mounted in the rearview mirror, which, together with the vehicle's speed and other factors, determines if the vehicle is leaving its designated lane.
As far as safety is concerned all Q3s are fitted with automatic emergency braking, blind spot detection and lane departure systems
with other handy systems such as automatic cruise control available as an option.
Safety features on all versions includes front collision avoidance, pedestrian detection and lane departure systems
while the Ioniq Electric is also fitted with Hyundai's I-pedal system which allows the vehicle to be stopped via the paddle shift levers without using the brake pedal.
Blind spot alerts and lane departure systems
are also being introduced on the new Octavias and so is a trailer assist set up which helps manoeuvring when hitched up.
This would include a detailed understanding of: - braking, steering and suspension systems - towing devices - tyres - lighting - electronic systems - active and passive vehicle safety systems and devices (including driver aids such as ESC, AEBS, Lane Departure systems
etc - vehicle emissions (including vehicle noise) - international best practice for road safety and the multidisciplinary research in this area Response deadline (Irish time) 17-04-2015 18:00
