Audi Q7: Maneuver assist

Description

Applies to: vehicles with maneuver assist


Fig. 140 Upper display: maneuver assist

General information

The maneuver assist supports the driver when maneuvering and parking by monitoring the area in front of, behind, and beside the vehicle using sensors. If there is an impending collision with an object, the system will intervene within its limits and attempt to prevent the collision by applying the brakes. The system can detect objects that are approximately 8 inches (20 cm) high or higher.

Display overview

The displays (1) - (4) indicate the status and availability of the maneuver assist.

  1. The white border indicates the availability in this area.
  2. The red border indicates an object nearby.
  3. If there is no border, this indicates an inactive area (partial availability).
  4. Activate/deactivate maneuver assist and status displays:
    • Maneuver assist activated. The vehicle is bordered in white. If the sensors are partially available, the white border will only be visible in the monitored areas.
    • Maneuver assist is temporarily deactivated.
    • (symbol shown in gray) Maneuver assist is not available.
    • No symbol: maneuver assist was switched off completely in the settings.

Braking intervention

Braking intervention can be initiated if there is an impending possible collision with a detected stationary object. If the brakes were applied until the vehicle stopped, Maneuver assist: vehicle has been braked. Obstacle detected will appear in the instrument cluster and you must take over control of the vehicle.

If you continue driving toward the obstacle after the vehicle is braked to a stop, maneuver assist will automatically be temporarily deactivated until the next maneuvering situation.

WARNING

Observe the safety precautions and note the limits of the assist systems, sensors, and cameras.

Tips

  • The system is only partially available when a trailer is detected. The white outline is hidden at the inoperative areas. There is no guarantee the functions will be deactivated when using a retrofitted trailer hitch.
  • If the indicator light blinks while driving, ESC will intervene to regulate and maneuver assist will be canceled.
  • System functions may not be available if the ESC is limited or switched off, or if there is a malfunction.
  • The system will not be available when certain assist systems are switched on or if park assist plus is used.
