BMW 5 Series: Limits of the system

The collision warning has a limited capacity for detection. As a result, incorrect or delayed warnings may occur and consequently Evasion Aid is limited in its operation. It is also possible that the following vehicles are not detected:

  • A slow vehicle when driving off at high speed.
  • Vehicles that suddenly swerve or decelerate rapidly.
  • Vehicles with an unusual rear view or with insufficiently visible rear lights.
  • Partially concealed vehicles.
  • Two-wheeled vehicles travelling ahead.

The function of the KAFAS stereo camera and the radar sensors, and thus the function of Evasion Aid may be impaired in the following situations:

  • Heavy fog, rain, spray or snow.
  • Insufficient light.
  • Strong light in the camera lens.
  • If the field of view of the KAFAS stereo camera or the windscreen is dirty.
  • On sharp bends.
  • Up to 10 seconds after engine start via the START-STOP button.
  • On restriction or deactivation of the driving dynamics systems, for example DSC OFF.
  • During the calibration process for the KAFAS stereo camera immediately after vehicle delivery or a camera change.

Evasion Aid does not release the driver from his comprehensive responsibility as the driver. There can be functional limitations because of system restrictions.
