BMW 5 Series 2016-2024 Owners Manual / Driver assistance systems / PDC Park Distance Control / With parking assistant and Steptronic transmission: emergency braking function, Active PDC

Concept

The emergency braking function of PDC initiates an emergency braking in case of acute risk of collision.

General information

Due to system limits, a collision cannot be prevented under all circumstances.

The function is available below walking speed when driving in reverse or rolling backward.

A press of the accelerator pedal interrupts the braking intervention.

After emergency braking to a stop, further creeping toward an obstacle is possible. To creep toward the obstacle, lightly press the accelerator pedal and release it again.

If the accelerator pedal is heavily depressed, the vehicle drives off as usual. Manual braking is possible at any time.

The system uses the ultrasound sensors of PDC and parking assistant.

Safety information
