Skoda Superb (2019 year). Manual - part 15

 

 

The front of the vehicle and the distance to the vehicle ahead is monitored by

a radar sensor 

» page 216

.

The state in which the ACC maintains the speed or the proximity is described

as control from here on.

WARNING

The general information relating to the use of assistance systems must be

observed 

» page 216,

   in section Introduction.

The driver must always be ready to take over the operation of the accel-

erator and brake pedal.

The ACC does not react when approaching a stationary obstacle, such as

traffic jams, vehicle breakdowns or vehicles waiting at a traffic light.

The ACC does not respond to crossing or oncoming objects.

If the ACC does not decelerate fast enough, immediately apply the vehi-

cle's foot brake.

WARNING

For safety reasons, do not use the ACC under the following conditions.

When driving in turning lanes, motorway exits or construction sites, to

avoid an unwanted acceleration to the stored speed.

When visibility is poor, (e.g. fog, heavy rain, thick snowfall).

When road conditions are poor (e.g. ice, slippery road, gravel, dirt road).

Driving in “sharp” corners or in steep gradients / on steep inclines.

When driving through places where metal objects (such as metal build-

ings, railway tracks, etc.) can be found.

When driving through very divided and enclosed spaces (such as large-

capacity garages, car ferries, tunnels and the like.).

Note

The ACC is designed primarily for use on motorways.

The ACC reduces the speed by automatically releasing the accelerator or by

means of a braking procedure as appropriate. If the brakes are used for an au-

tomatic speed reduction at any moments, then the brake light illuminates.

In case of failure of more than one brake light on the vehicle or on the con-

nected trailer, the ACC becomes unavailable.

The control automatically cancels the engagement of the brake supportive

assistance systems (e.g. ESC) or when the maximum permitted engine speed is

exceeded.

Regulation according to the vehicle in the adjacent lane

During regulation your vehicle may be regulated according to the vehicle in the

adjacent lane.
This could occur at speeds above about 80 km/h when your vehicle is moving

faster than the vehicle in the adjacent lane on the driver's side. The display

shows the detected vehicle is in the adjacent lane.

Note

Some ACC notifications in the display of the instrument cluster may be hidden

by notifications for other functions. An ACC notification automatically appears

for a brief moment when there is a change in status of the ACC.

Automatic stopping and starting

Read and observe   on page 237 first.

Vehicles with an automatic transmission can decelerate to a standstill and

start moving again using the ACC.

Decelerate to a standstill

If a vehicle ahead decelerates to a standstill, the ACC will also decelerate your

vehicle to a standstill.

Starting to drive again after a holding period

As soon as the vehicle ahead starts moving again after a holding period, your

vehicle will also move and the speed will continue to be regulated.
If the preceding vehicle starts moving again after a long break, then to contin-

ue the regulation press the accelerator pedal or lever to set the lever in

Driving

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Fig. 300  Lane changes of other vehicles / stationary vehicles

Read and observe   on page 237 first.

The following (and similar) situations require special attention and possibly the

intervention of the driver (braking, accelerating etc.).

When cornering

When driving into or driving out of long corners, it could be that a vehicle is

travelling in the adjacent lane and is scanned by the radar 

» Fig. 299

 - . The

host vehicle is then controlled according to this vehicle.

Narrow vehicles or vehicles travelling side by side

A narrow or offset vehicle driving can only be recognized by the ACC if this is

located in the scanning range of the radar 

» Fig. 299

 - .

Other vehicles changing lanes

Vehicles that change onto the lane with a small distance 

» Fig. 300

 -  may not

be detected by ACC in good time.

Stationary vehicles

The ACC does not detect stationary objects! When a vehicle detected by the

ACC turns or sheers off and there is a stationary vehicle in front of this vehicle,

» Fig. 300

 - the ACC does not respond to the stationary vehicle.

Vehicles with special load or special body parts

Other vehicles with a load or with body parts protruding from the sides, back

or top of the vehicle contour may not be detected by the ACC.

Overtaking and towing

Read and observe   on page 237 first.

When overtaking

When your vehicle is being controlled at a speed that is lower than the set

speed and the turn signal is operated, ACC assesses this situation as meaning

that the driver wishes to overtake. The ACC automatically accelerates the ve-

hicle, thereby reducing the proximity to a vehicle ahead.
If your vehicle changes to the overtaking lane and no vehicle is detected

ahead, ACC accelerates until the set speed is reached and then keeps it con-

stant.
Acceleration can be cancelled at any time by touch on the brake pedal or

pressing the button  on the lever 

» Fig. 298

 on page 239.

Towing a trailer

When towing, or if another accessory is connected to the trailer socket, ACC

control is set with a lower rate. The manner of driving should therefore be

adapted to this limitation.

Malfunctions

Read and observe   on page 237 first.

If ACC is not available, the warning light  appears in the display of the instru-

ment cluster and an appropriate message is shown.

Sensor covered / dirty

If the sensor cover or the sensor is dirty or covered, a message appears on the

instrument cluster display stating there is no sensor view. Clean the sensor

cover or remove the obstacles 

» Fig. 268

 on page 216.

If there is no sensor view in the winter, the snow on the sensor under the cov-

er could be the reason. The ACC is functional again after the snow melts away

from the sensor.

ACC not available

If the ACC is unavailable, a message concerning the unavailability appears.

Stop the vehicle, switch off the engine and then start it again. If ACC continues

to be unavailable, seek the assistance of a specialist garage.

Front Assist

Introduction

The Front Assist (hereinafter referred to as the system) warns you of the dan-

ger of a collision with a vehicle or another obstacle in front of the vehicle, and

tries to avoid a collision or mitigate its consequences by automatically applying

the brakes where necessary.
The area in front of the vehicle is monitored by a radar sensor

» page 216

.

WARNING

Please take note of the general points relating to the use of assistance

systems

» page 216,

   in section Introduction.

The system does not respond to crossing or oncoming objects.

CAUTION

In case of failure of more than one brake light on the vehicle or on the electri-

cally connected trailer, the system becomes unavailable.

Read and observe   and   on page 242 first.

Emergency braking at low speed

If there is a risk of collision in a vehicle speed range of about 5 km/h to 45

km/h, the system triggers an automatic braking.
With automatic braking, the warning light appears in the display  

» Fig. 302

.

Advance warning

If the system detects a risk of collision, the warning light appears on the dis-

play  

» Fig. 302

 and an audible signal is emitted.

The pre-warning display can occur in the following situations.

If there is a risk of collision with a moving obstacle in a speed range of ap-

proximately 30 km/h to 210 km/h.

If there is a risk of collision with a stationary obstacle in a speed range of ap-

proximately 30 km/h to 80 km/h.

With a warning the brake pedal must be pressed or the moving obstacle is

to be avoided!

Immediate warning and automatic braking - a moving obstacle

If the driver does not react to the advance warning when in danger of a colli-

sion with a moving obstacle, the system briefly applies the brake automatically

via an active brake intervention to draw attention to the potential danger of a

collision again.
If the driver does not respond to acute warning, the system begins to auto-

matically brake the vehicle.

Automatic braking - a stationary obstacle

If the driver does not respond to the advance warning of the risk of a collision

with a stationary obstacle in a speed range of approximately 30 km/h to 60

km/h, the system initiates automatic braking.

Information on automatic braking

If an automatic brake intervention is triggered by the system, the pressure in

the brake system increases and the brake pedal cannot be operated with the

normal pedal stroke.
The automatic braking interventions can be cancelled by pressing the acceler-

ator pedal or by means of a steering intervention.

Brake assist

If the driver brakes inadequate with an impending collision, the system auto-

matically increases braking force.
The braking assistance only occurs as long as the brake pedal is being firmly

pressed down.

Proactive occupant protection (Crew Protect Assist)

Introduction

ProActive passenger protection (following known as system) increases pas-

senger protection in the front seats in situations that could lead to vehicle im-

pact or overturning.

WARNING

Please take note of the general points relating to the use of assistance sys-

tems 

» page 216,

   in section Introduction.

Note

The system component service life is monitored electronically. Further infor-

mation 

» page 42

 Safety systems.

If the front passenger front airbag is deactivated, the belt tensioning func-

tion for the front passenger seat is switched off.

Function

Read and observe   on page 246 first.

In critical driving situations (e.g. during emergency braking or a sudden change

in direction), the following steps can be taken separately or combined in order

to reduce the risk of serious injury.

The front passenger's and driver's seatbelts, if worn, are automatically ten-

sioned closely over the body.

Opened electrically powered door windows are closed automatically up to a

gap of about 5 cm from the edge.

The sliding/tilting roof is closed.

Once the critical driving situation has passed, the tension on the seatbelts will

be released again.
The system operates at two levels of protection.

The first level of protection

The system already intervenes in situations that may occur during dynamic

driving. As a result, this primarily helps to keep the driver and the passenger in

the correct seated position.
The first protection level can be deactivated in one of the following ways.

In the infotainment system, in menu

.

By selecting the driving mode Sport 

» page 245

.

After switching the ignition off and on, the system is activated in both levels of

protection.

The second level of protection

The system intervenes only if the situation is evaluated as critical, such as

when panic braking at high speeds.
This level of protection cannot be deactivated.

Vehicles with the Front Assist system

Using this information, a system intervention may also occur when there is the

danger of a collision with an obstacle detected in front of the vehicle.

Spurhalteassistent (Lane Assist)

Introduction

Fig. 304 

Sensor for Lane Assist

The lane departure warning (following known as system) helps to keep the ve-

hicle between the boundary lines of a lane.
The system recognises the boundary lines of the lane using a sensor 

» Fig. 304

.

When the vehicle approaches a detected line between lanes, the system

makes a light movement of the steering wheel in the opposite direction to the

boundary line. This corrective steering intervention can be manually overridden

at any time.

WARNING

Please take note of the general points relating to the use of assistance

systems 

» page 216,

   in section Introduction.

Lane Assist can help you keep the vehicle within the lane. However, it

does not steer the vehicle for you. The driver retains full responsibility for

steering at all times.

Some objects or markings on the road can be recognised as the boundary

lines - an erroneous steering intervention may be the result.

WARNING

The system may not be able to recognise the boundary line, or recognise it

incorrectly, for example, in the following situations.

When visibility is poor, (e.g. fog, heavy rain, thick snowfall).

When driving in “sharp” bends.

The sensor is blinded by the sun or oncoming traffic.

The field of view of the sensor is limited by an obstacle or a preceding ve-

hicle.

CAUTION

Do not attach any stickers or similar objects in front of the sensor on the wind-

screen to avoid impairing the functions of the system.

Note

The system is designed for driving on motorways and roads with adequate

longitudinal markings.

The system can detect both continuous and broken lines.

dary lines selected by the driver, by means of steering intervention.

If the position within the lane is changed, the system quickly adapts and holds

the newly-selected position.

Steering wheel vibrations

In the following situations, it may occasionally be the case that due to the

steering wheel vibrations the syst4em indicates that a driver steering interven-

tion is required.

The system is not able to keep the vehicle by a within the lane due to a steer-

ing intervention.

During an intense system-related steering intervention, the system suddenly

cannot recognize the boundary lines.

WARNING

The system function may be restricted if, for example there is danger due

to ruts on a downhill road or in a crosswind.

Activation / deactivation

Traffic jam assistant

Introduction

WARNING

Please take note of the general points relating to the use of assistance

systems 

» page 216,

   in section Introduction.

The driver must always have hands on the steering wheel and be ready to

take over steering of the vehicle himself (accelerate or brake).

Note

The system is designed primarily for use on motorways.

Function

Read and observe   on page 249 first.

The traffic jam assistant (referred to as system) helps to keep the vehicle with-

in the lane at speeds below 65 km/h while keeping the distance to the vehicle

ahead.
Only vehicles with automatic transmission, Lane Assist and ACC can be equip-

ped with the system.

The traffic jam assistant works using the functions of the Lane Assist systems

» page 247

 and ACC

Assistant for emergencies

Introduction

WARNING

Please take note of the general points relating to the use of assistance

systems 

» page 216,

   in section Introduction.

The system is intended for emergency situations when the driver is sud-

denly unable to take over the steering task. Therefore, never try to test out

the system - there is a risk of an accident!

Function

Read and observe   on page 249 first.

The assistant for emergencies (following known as system) detects inactivity

of the driver, which for example can be caused by a sudden loss of conscious-

ness. The system then performs measures as safely as possible to decelerate

the vehicle to a stop.
Only vehicles with automatic transmission, Lane Assist and ACC can be equip-

ped with the system.

 and ACC 

» page 236

, For this reason, the chapters re-

lating to these systems must be read carefully and the safety instructions lis-

ted therein must be observed.

System intervention

If the system detects the driver's inactivity, it draws attention to this fact by a

beep and a message on the display of the instrument cluster. It keeps the vehi-

cle in its lane.
If the driver does not take over the steering even after a repeated warning, the

system automatically brakes the vehicle and after it has come to a standstill

the parking brake switch on.
With automatic braking, the hazard warning system is switched on.
The automatic braking interventions can be cancelled by pressing the acceler-

ator pedal or by means of a steering intervention.

Operating conditions

Read and observe   on page 249 first.

The system can intervene when the following basic conditions are present.

Traffic sign recognition

Introduction

The traffic sign recognition (following known as system) shows certain traffic

signs (e.g. speed limits) on the display of the instrument cluster and if necessa-

ry warns against excessive speeds.

WARNING

Please take note of the general points relating to the use of assistance

systems 

» page 216,

   in section Introduction.

Vertical traffic signs must always take precedence over the traffic signs

shown in the display. The driver is always responsible for correctly assess-

ing the traffic situation.

The speed indications in the traffic signs shown refer to the speed units

that are common in the country. For example, the display  may relate to

km/h or mph depending on the country in question.

WARNING

The traffic signs may not be displayed or displayed incorrectly in the sys-

tem e.g. in the following situations.

When visibility is poor, (e.g. fog, heavy rain, thick snowfall).

The sensor is blinded by the sun or oncoming traffic.

The field of view of the sensor is limited by an obstacle or a preceding ve-

hicle.

Travelling at high speed.

The traffic signs are covered (e.g. by trees, snow or dirt).

The traffic signs are not standard (round with a red border) or are dam-

aged.

The traffic signs are attached to flashing neon signs.

The traffic signs were changed (the navigation data are out of date).

Note

The system is only available in some countries.

System limitation

The system displays a message about system limitation in the following cases.

The map documents are not up to date.

The vehicle is located in an area for which no map documents are present.

Fatigue detection system

The fatigue detection system (hereinafter simply the system) advises the driv-

er to take a break from driving when driver fatigue can be detected based on

the driver's steering behaviour.
The system evaluates the steering behaviour at speeds of 60-200 km/h.
Conditions under which a break from driving is detected by the system

The vehicle is stopped and the ignition switched off.

The vehicle is stopped, the seat belt removed and the driver's door opened.

The vehicle is stopped for more than 15 minutes.

If none of these conditions are met or if the driving style is not changed, the

system recommends a driving break again after 15 minutes.
The system can be activated/deactivated in menu 



/  →  → Driver assis-

tance menu.

Pause recommendation

The icon appears and the following message for a few seconds in the display

of the instrument cluster  and a message about detected fatigue. An audible

signal is also emitted.

WARNING

Please take note of the general points relating to the use of assistance

systems 

» page 216,

   in section Introduction.

For the driving ability is always the driver's responsibility. Never drive if

you feel tired.

The system may not detect all cases where a break is needed.

Therefore, take regular, sufficient breaks during long trips.

There will be no system warning during the so-called micro-sleep.

Note

In some situations, the system can evaluate the steering behaviour incorrect-

ly and therefore falsely display a break recommendation.

The system is designed primarily for use on motorways.

Tyre pressure monitoring

The tyre pressure monitoring function (following known as system) monitors

the tyre pressure while driving.
If the tyre inflation pressure changes, the warning light 

 lights up in the in-

strument cluster and an audible signal sounds

» page 43

.

The system can only function properly if the tyres have the prescribed inflation

pressure and these pressure values are stored in the system.
Always save the tyre pressure values in the system if one of the following

events occurs.

Change of tyre pressure values.

Change one or more wheels.

Change in position of a wheel on the vehicle.
