Lane Keeping Assist is a camera-based system for automatic detection of divider line markings on the road. The system eases the burden on the driver by providing steering assistance, helping to keep the vehicle in lane.
Integrated traffic sign recognition uses a camera and navigation data to detect speed limits and ‘no overtaking’ zones and to infer local traffic codes (e.g. from boundary signs). Information is displayed in the instrument cluster. The advantage over information stored in the navigation database is that even temporary speed restrictions can be detected.
New for Porsche is the cornering notification, an enhancement to the traffic sign recognition function. Based on navigation system data and camera recognition of cornering road signs, the system displays an arrowed direction warning on the instrument cluster display alerting you to tight corners. Long before you reach them.
How do you benefit? Increased comfort. And reduced stress, not least on long cross-country journeys.
