Trailers maneuvered by rotary knob

It can also facilitate the life of a fellow assistant. Unless it is the coupled load carrier to a uniaxial specimen allows, Audis future helpers to maneuver it to the driver, the team clean and purposeful. However, this does not help the already used in more standard models radar sensors, but this measure has a special sensor in the trailer hitch articulation angle between the car and trailer. Additionally allows the image of a rearview camera display in a relaxed view to the rear. Via the rotary knob reset the MMI in the center console allows the driver with a simple twist to the left or right, specify the desired direction for the team when reversing. The corresponding steering impulses of Audi’s own. This works amazingly simple, even novices can completely relax and maneuver safely in the trailer operation. Probably soon be the customer of the future Audi Towbars can be ordered with the corresponding bend angle sensor.

A practical extension of the functionality is also the so-called congestion assistant. Here, the driver can rely on stop-and-go traffic to 60 km / h fully autonomous working on the technology and focus for example on his video phone. On the one used here is already in use in production distance cruise control ACC and extended by an autonomous lateral control of the vehicle. Here capture two radar sensors of the next generation of wedge-shaped boxes of each 21-degree angle and up to 250 meters in length. In addition, a video camera observed the lane lines and other objects. With this technique remains the then autonomously propelled Audi to the vehicle ahead with the corresponding distance on the heel and also in the lane. The system works even with gentle curves.
