BMW 5 Series: Evasion Aid

Often a collision with another vehicle (at the end of a traffic jam for example) or obstacle can only be prevented by an avoidance maneuver. Since the driver's response time plays a decisive role in an avoidance maneuver just as in a braking maneuver, Evasion Aid is able to make a considerable contribution to avoiding an impending collision.

Evasion Aid supports the driver in such critical driving situations with a focused steering intervention if the driver needs to avoid an obstacle. The system also help keep the vehicle stable during and after the avoidance maneuver.

This is achieved by an interaction between the Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), the Electronic Power Steering (EPS) and the analysis of data from the assistance sensors.

 Functional principle

An emergency avoidance maneuver takes place when a suddenly occurring obstacle is detected in front of the vehicle and the driver has to avoid this obstacle quickly and without "significant" braking
