Volkswagen has a new driver emergency assist system that is going to be integrated into the Arteon and it's fully described below. What do you think of it?

One of those features will be Emergency Assist 2.0 - a system which makes full use of the Arteon's suite of assists to take brief control of the car in an emergency.

Emergency Assist 2.0 is intended to deal with worst-case scenarios such as the driver becoming incapacitated at the wheel. In short, if it detects an unresponsive driver.

If the car senses that the driver has not used the wheel or pedals for a certain period of time, the system will first deploy 'countermeasures' such as warning signals and lights, plus physical autonomous brake jolt signals. If these measures aren't enough, the emergency stop system steps in. The hazard lights automatically switch on, and by using the lane keep assist in tandem with the steering controls from the parking assist feature, the Arteon will begin to move across into the nearside lane. Side assist uses ultrasound sensors to detect traffic around the vehicle, while the adaptive cruise control regulates brake and throttle.

A Pre-Crash system to detect approaching dangers is another one of the Arteon's safety assist features, but this new setup can now detect imminent shunts from the rear.

Pre-Crash uses data from the traction control system to detect potential crashes related to driving dynamics, data from the Front Assist system to warn and overt potential head-on collisions, and now it can use data from the Side Assist function to sense danger from behind. Side Assist is used as a blind-spot detection system most of the time, but its sensors can also sweep the road behind, either when stationary or when moving.

If it detects an imminent risk, the system will step in and react by turning on the hazard warning lights, closing the windows and pulling the seatbelts taut.

I can't imagine many buyers going for this as an additional option because of how prohibitively expensive it's most likely going to be. But if the tech is more affordable I can see myself buying it.

I like this whole prelude to fully self driving vehicles and these small subtle ways to introduce it will go a long way in selling people. I just hope that when it comes to pre-crash systems that we will also get lower insurance rates.

I can understand this working with an automatic gearbox to slow the vehicle smoothly, but wonder how this works with a manual. Does it just switches off the engine?

Nice technology but i hope it won't make the car more expensive and will be easy to maintain because recently i had an accident on my Passat and i had to pay really much to fix it, the insurance company didn't pay me because my car was upgraded and i had to fix it on my own. After that i cancelled my insurance with them and had to find another company with good reputation, my friend has experience working with insurance companies recommend me to call car insurance Lowell he said he insured his 3 cars with them and they were really nice and paying easily and cover absolutely all your expenses, and switched to them.

Is this as good as it sounds?

Yeah, I can tell you a little about them. To be honest, this is a decent car insurance agency that will provide you a wide range of commodities. Anyway, as you pretty sure know it already, you can never have something good without paying for it. The same applies in this particular case. I would actually advise you to compare some of the best insurance companies on a platform like this one compare car insurance and decide for yourself if it's worth investing in them. Also, if you want to have some more information about it, you can simply send me a private message. I will answer as soon as possible.
