Propilot is damn freaky

Post by vexorg » Thu Mar 19, 2020 10:42 am

Had a go at the propilot last night on the motorway, so freaky having it move the steering wheel to keep the car centred on the lanes, even on bends.

Then started playing with it to see the limits, try and make it wander and it forces you back in the middle of the lane. Take you hands off the wheel (litterally a few mm) to see what it does and it somehow knows you're not got your hands on the wheel and you get a big red warning on the dash.

All done on an empty strech of motorway, so no risk to anyone else.

It took a few attempts to figure out the blue propilot button is also cruise control.

Dealership explained that is Pro Pilot detects hands not on steering wheel the brakes are applied.

Used correctly on a motorway it is an ideal asset. More so when in speed restricted sections like road works.

Also figured out last night that it must read the speed signs on the road, as it knows the limits for roadworks, or anywhere you drive as you pass the sign.
