BMW 5 Series: Person warning with City braking function

BMW 5 Series 2016-2024 Owners Manual / Safety / Person warning with City braking function

Concept

The system may prevent some accidents with pedestrians. When driving at city speeds, the system will issue a warning if there is imminent risk of a collision with pedestrians, and support with a braking function.

General information

The system is active at speeds of approx. 3 mph/5 km/h up to approx. 40 mph/65 km/h.

The system reacts to people who are within the detection range of the system.

The camera in the area of the interior mirror controls the system.

Detection range

The detection area in front of the vehicle is divided

The detection area in front of the vehicle is divided into two areas:

  • Central area, arrow 1, directly in front of the vehicle.
  • Expanded area, arrow 2, to the right and left of the central area.

A collision is imminent if pedestrians are located within the central area. A warning is issued about pedestrians who are located within the extended area only if they are moving in the direction of the central area.

Safety information

Warning

The system cannot serve as a substitute for the driver's personal judgment in assessing visibility and traffic situation. There is a risk of accident.

Adjust driving style to traffic conditions. Watch traffic closely and actively intervene where appropriate.

Warning

Indicators and warnings cannot serve as a substitute for the driver's personal judgment. Due to its limits, the system may not issue warnings or reactions, or these may be issued late or in a manner that is not consistent with their normal use. There is a risk of accident. Adjust driving style to traffic conditions. Watch traffic closely and actively intervene where appropriate.

Warning

Due to system limits, individual functions can malfunction during tow-starting/towing with the Intelligent Safety systems activated. There is a risk of accident. Switch all Intelligent Safety systems off prior to tow-starting/towing.

Switching on/off manually

Press the button.

The menu for the Intelligent Safety system is displayed.

If all Intelligent Safety systems were switched off, all systems are now switched on.

"Configure INDIVIDUAL": depending on the equipment version, the Intelligent Safety systems can be individually configured. The individual settings are activated and stored for the driver profile currently used. As soon as a setting is changed on the menu, all settings of the menu are activated.

Press the button repeatedly.

The following settings are switched between:

"ALL ON": all Intelligent Safety systems are switched on. Basic settings are activated for the subfunctions.

Warning with braking function

Display

If a collision with a detected person is imminent, a warning symbol appears on the instrument cluster and in the Head-up Display.

a signal The red symbol is displayed and a signal sounds.

vehicle Alternatively, depending on the vehicle equipment, a red warning triangle lights up in the instrument cluster.

Intervene immediately by braking or make an evasive maneuver.

Braking intervention

The warning prompts the driver to intervene. If a warning is active, the maximum braking force is used when the brake is applied. This requires the brake pedal to be depressed sufficiently quickly and forcefully.

If there is a risk of collision, the system may also assist with braking.

When the vehicle is traveling at a low speed, the vehicle may come to a complete stop.

The braking intervention occurs only if vehicle stability has not been restricted, for instance by deactivating the DSC Dynamic Stability Control.

The driver may interrupt the braking intervention function by stepping on the accelerator pedal or by actively moving the steering wheel.

The system's ability to detect objects may be limited in some circumstances. Refer to the information in this Owner's Manual regarding the limitations of the system and actively intervene as warranted.

System limits

Safety information

Warning

The system is designed to operate in certain conditions and circumstances. Due to conditions or other factors, the system may not respond.

There may be a risk of accident or risk of damage to property. Actively intervene as warranted. Refer to the information in this Owner's Manual regarding the scope of the system's operation and limitations.

Detection range

The detection potential of the camera is limited.

Thus, a warning might not be issued or be issued late.

The following situations may not be detected, for instance:

  • Partially covered pedestrians.
  • Pedestrians that are not detected as such because of the viewing angle or contour.
  • Pedestrians outside of the detection range.
  • Pedestrians having a body size less than 32 in/80 cm.

Functional limitations

The system may not be fully functional or may not be available in the following situations:

  • In heavy fog, wet conditions, or snowfall.
  • In tight curves.
  • If the driving stability control systems are deactivated, for instance DSC OFF.
  • If the field of view of the camera or the windshield is dirty or covered in the area of the interior mirror.
  • If the camera has overheated and been temporarily switched off due to excessively high temperatures.
  • Up to 10 seconds after the start of the engine via the Start/Stop button.
  • During calibration of the camera immediately after vehicle delivery.
  • If there are constant blinding effects because of oncoming light, for instance from the sun low in the sky.
  • When it is dark outside.
