    Adaptive Cruise Control-ACC

    Introduction

    Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) is an optional system designed to assist the driver by maintaining a set speed or a set distance to the vehicle ahead. It is primarily intended for use on long straight roads in steady traffic, such as on highways and other main roads.

    warning WARNING
  • Do not use the adaptive cruise control system in demanding driving conditions such as city traffic, winding roads, at intersections, on slippery surfaces, in poor visibility, heavy rain, etc.
  • Maintenance of cruise control components must only be performed by an authorized Volvo workshop.
  • warning WARNING
  • Adaptive cruise control cannot cover all driving situations and traffic, weather and road conditions. The Function section provides information about limitations that the driver must be aware of before using the adaptive cruise control.
  • This system is designed to be a supplementary driving aid. It is not, however, intended to replace the driver's attention and judgement. The driver is responsible for maintaining a safe distance and speed and must intervene if adaptive cruise control does not maintain a suitable speed or suitable distance.
  • Function

    Warning light, braking by driver required

    Controls

    Radar sensor in front grille

    Adaptive cruise control consists of:

  • A cruise control system to maintain a set speed
  • A system to maintain a set distance to the vehicle ahead (expressed as a time interval. For example, you can choose to remain approximately 2 seconds behind the vehicle ahead).

    145
     04 Comfort and driving pleasure

    Adaptive Cruise Control-ACC

    warning WARNING
  • Adaptive cruise control is not a collision avoidance system. The driver is always responsible for applying the brakes if the system does not detect another vehicle.
  • Adaptive cruise control does not react to slow moving or stationary vehicles.
  • The distance to the vehicle ahead (in the same lane) is measured by a radar sensor. Your vehicle's speed is regulated by acceleration and braking. The brakes may emit a sound when they are being modulated by the adaptive cruise control system. This is normal.

    warning WARNING
    The brake pedal moves when the adaptive cruise control system modulates the brakes. Do not rest your foot under the brake pedal.

    The adaptive cruise control system is designed to follow the vehicle ahead of you in the same lane, at a set time interval.

    If the radar sensor has not detected a vehicle ahead, the system will then attempt to maintain the set speed. This is also the case if the speed of the vehicle ahead exceeds the speed that you have set.

    The adaptive cruise control system is designed to smoothly regulate speed. However, the driver must apply the brakes in situations that require immediate braking. This applies when there are great differences in speed between vehicles, or if the vehicle ahead brakes suddenly.

    warning WARNING
    Due to limitations in the radar sensor, braking may occur unexpectedly or not at all, see page 146.

    Adaptive cruise control can only be activated at speeds above 20 mph (30 km/h). If speed falls below 20 mph (30 km/h) or if engine speed (rpm) becomes too low, adaptive cruise control disengages and will no longer modulate the brakes. In situations when adaptive cruise control cannot be activated Cruise Control Unavailable is shown in the display, see page 149.

    warning WARNING
    When adaptive cruise control disengages, the brakes will not be modulated automatically. The driver must assume full control over the vehicle.

    Warning light-driver braking required
    Adaptive cruise control has a braking capacity that is equivalent to approximately 30% of the vehicle's total braking capacity. In situations requiring more brake force than ACC can provide, if the driver does not apply the brakes, an audible signal will sound and a red warning light will illuminate in the windshield.

    note NOTE
    The red warning light may be difficult to see in strong sunlight or when sunglasses are being worn.

    warning WARNING
    Cruise control only warns of vehicles detected by the radar sensor, see page 146. In some cases there may be no warning or the warning may be delayed. The driver should always apply the brakes when necessary.

    Automatic deactivation
    Adaptive cruise control is linked to other systems such as the stability and traction control system (DSTC). If any of these systems are not functioning properly, adaptive cruise control is automatically deactivated.

    In the event of automatic deactivation a signal will sound and the message Cruise Control Canceled is shown in the display. The

    146
     04 Comfort and driving pleasure

    Adaptive Cruise Control-ACC

    driver must then intervene and adapt the vehicle's speed to the surrounding traffic. Automatic deactivation may be caused if:

  • the vehicle's speed falls below 20 mph (30 km/h)
  • the wheels lose traction or if the anti-lock brake system is activated
  • brake temperature is high
  • engine speed (rpm) is too low
  • the radar sensor is obstructed by, for example, wet snow or rain.

    The radar sensor and its limitations

    The radar sensor is used both by the adaptive cruise control and the collision warning system. It is designed to detect vehicles or larger vehicles driving in the same direction as your vehicle. The radar sensor does not detect pedestrians, or oncoming, slow or stationary vehicles and objects. Warnings are not given and the brakes are not applied in such cases.

    warning WARNING
    Accessories or other objects must not be installed in front of the grille.

    Modification of the radar sensor could make its use illegal.

    The radar sensor's capacity to detect vehicles ahead is impeded:

  • if the radar sensor is obstructed and cannot detect other vehicles, for example in heavy rain, or if snow or other objects are obscuring the radar sensor.

    note NOTE
    Keep the area in front of the radar sensor clean.

  • if the speed of vehicles ahead is significantly different from your own speed.

    The radar sensor has a limited field of vision. In some situations it may detect a vehicle other than the one expected or not detect vehicles at all.

    In certain situations, the radar sensor cannot detect vehicles at close quarters, for example a vehicle that suddenly enters the lanes between your vehicle and the one that the system has already detected.

    Small vehicles, such as motorcycles, or vehicles not driving in the center of the lane may remain undetected.

    147

  • When the system is in active mode, the button has the same function as , but results in a smaller increase in speed.

    note NOTE
  • If adaptive cruise control does not react to activation, this may be because the set time interval to the closest vehicle prevents an increase in speed.
  • In some situations cruise control cannot be activated. Cruise Control Unavailable is shown in the display, see page 149.
  • Setting a time interval

  • The set time interval to vehicles ahead is increased with and decreased with . The current time interval is shown briefly in the display following adjustment.

    Five different time intervals can be selected.

  • A longer time interval results in smoother speed control. The recommended time interval is three to five.
  • Time intervals one and two are primarily intended for driving in queues in heavy traffic, in which case you must intervene more often.

    warning WARNING
    Only use the time interval that is permitted by local traffic regulations.

    Deactivating and resuming settings
    Cruise control is deactivated, either with a short press on , or by action taken by the driver, such as braking, etc. The set speed is then shown in parentheses. Speed and time interval are resumed with one press on .

    warning WARNING
    There may be a significant increase in speed after the button has been pressed.

    Collision warning system (option)

    Introduction

    The Collision Warning with Brake Support, (CW) is designed to assist the driver by warning of collision risk. The brake support helps reduce the collision speed.

    warning WARNING
  • The collision warning system does not work in all driving situations and traffic, weather and road conditions.
  • The system does not react to slow moving or stationary vehicles, or vehicles that are not traveling in the same direction as your vehicle.
  • Warnings are only provided when the risk of collision is high. The Function section provides information about limitations that the driver must be aware of before use.
  • The collision warning system's brake support can only reduce the speed at which a collision occurs if the driver applies the vehicle's brakes.
  • warning WARNING
  • Never wait for a collision warning. This system is designed to be a supplementary driving aid. It is not, however, intended to replace the driver's attention and judgement. The driver is responsible for maintaining a safe distance and speed, even when the collision warning system is in use.
  • Maintenance of the collision warning system components must only be performed by a trained and qualified Volvo technician.
  • Function

    Visual warning signal, collision risk

    Sensor

    The radar sensor detects vehicles ahead that are moving in the same direction as your vehicle. In the event of a collision risk, you will be alerted by a red warning light and an audible warning signal.

    If the risk of collision increases after the warning, brake support is activated.

    The brake support prepares the brake system for rapid braking and the brakes are applied gently, which may be noticeable. If the brake pedal is depressed quickly then braking is implemented with full brake function, even if the force on the pedal is light.

    151
     04 Comfort and driving pleasure

    Collision warning system (option)

    The collision warning system is active at speeds above approximately 5 mph (7 km/h).

    Limitations
    The visual warning signal may be difficult to see in strong sunlight or when sunglasses are being worn. For this reason always activate the audible warning signal in such conditions.

    note NOTE
    The visual warning signal may be temporarily disengaged in the event of high passenger compartment temperature due to strong sunlight, etc. If this occurs, the audible warning signal will be used, even if it has been deactivated in the menu system.

    Warnings may not appear if the distance to the vehicle ahead is very small or if steering wheel and pedal movements are large, for example, due to a very active driving style.

    The collision warning system uses the same radar sensors as adaptive cruise control. For more information on the radar sensor and its limitations, see page 146.

    warning WARNING
  • In certain situations, the system cannot provide warnings, the warning may be delayed, or false warnings may be given if traffic conditions make it impossible for the radar sensor to detect the vehicle ahead.
  • If no warning is given, no brake support is provided.
  • A delayed warning means that brake support will also be delayed.
  • The false warnings may be in the form of both audio and visual signals.

    note NOTE
    The number of false warnings can be limited by reducing the warning distance. See the section "Set warning distance."

    Operation

    Some settings are controlled from the center console via a menu system. For information on how the menu system is used, see page 114.

    note NOTE
    The following settings apply to the collision warning system only and do not affect brake support.

    Park assist (option)

    Introduction

    The park assist system(s) are designed to assist you when driving into parking spaces, garages, etc. They utilize ultrasound sensors located in the bumpers to measure the distance to a vehicle or other object, or a person who may be close to the front or rear of the vehicle.

    warning WARNING
    These systems are designed to be a supplementary aid when parking the vehicle. They are not, however, intended to replace the driver's attention and judgement.

    Function
    The system is activated automatically when the vehicle is started. The indicator light in the button in the center console illuminates. The text Park Assist ON is shown in the center console display if reverse gear is selected or if the front sensors detect an object.

  • The front park assist system is active from the time the engine is started until the vehicle exceeds a speed of approximately 10 mph (15 km/h). It is also active when the vehicle is backing up.
  • Rear park assist is active when the engine is running and reverse gear has been selected.

    An intermittent audio signal becomes audible when your vehicle approaches an object. The frequency of the signal increases as you come closer to the object in front of or behind the vehicle. If the volume of another audio source from the audio system is high, this will be automatically lowered.

    The tone becomes constant at a distance of approximately 1 ft (30 cm). If there are objects within this distance both behind and in front of the vehicle, the signal alternates between front and rear speakers.

    Rear park assist

    The distance monitored behind the vehicle is approximately 5 ft (1.5 m). The signal comes from the rear speakers.

    The system must be deactivated when towing a trailer, carrying bicycles in a rear-mounted carrier, etc, which could trigger the rear park assist system's sensors.

    note NOTE
    Rear park assist is deactivated automatically when towing a trailer if Volvo genuine trailer wiring is used.

    Front park assist

    The distance monitored in front of the vehicle is approximately 2.5 ft (0.8 m). The signal comes from the front speakers.

    It may not be possible to combine auxiliary headlights and front park assist since these lights could trigger the system's sensors.

    154
     04 Comfort and driving pleasure

    Park assist (option)

    Faults in the system
    If the information symbol illuminates and Park Assist syst Service required is shown on the information display, this indicates that the system is not functioning properly and has been disengaged. Consult a Volvo retailer or authorized Volvo service technician.

    CAUTION
    In certain circumstances, the park assist system may give unexpected warning signals that can be caused by external sound sources that use the same ultrasound frequencies as the system. This may include such things as the horns of other vehicles, wet tires on asphalt, pneumatic brakes, motorcycle exhaust pipes, etc. This does not indicate a fault in the system.

    Activating/deactivating

    Press the Park assist button on the center console to temporarily deactivate the system(s). The indicator light in the button will go out when the system(s) have been deactivated.

    If the vehicle is equipped with front and rear park assist, both systems will be deactivated by pressing the button.

    Park assist will be automatically reactivated the next time the engine is started, or if the button is pressed (the indicator light in the button will illuminate).

    note NOTE
    Front park assist is disengaged automatically when the parking brake is applied.

    Cleaning the sensors

    The sensors must be cleaned regularly to ensure that they work properly. Clean them with water and a suitable car washing detergent.

    Ice and snow covering the sensors may cause incorrect warning signals.

    Blind Spot Information System (option)

    Introduction

    BLIS camera

    Indicator light

    BLIS symbol

    The Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) is an information system that indicates the presence of another vehicle moving in the same direction as your vehicle in the sideview mirror's "blind area."

    warning WARNING
  • BLIS is an information system, NOT a warning or safety system.
  • BLIS does not eliminate the need for you to visually confirm the conditions around you, and the need for you to turn your head and shoulders to make sure that you can safely change lanes.
  • As the driver, you have full responsibility for changing lanes in a safe manner.
  • The system is based on digital camera technology. The cameras are located beneath the side-view mirrors.

    When one (or both) of the cameras have detected a vehicle in the blind area (up to approximately 10 ft. (3 meters) from the side of your vehicle, and up to approximately 31 ft. (9.5 meters) behind the side-view mirror), see the illustration in the right column, the indicator light in the door panel illuminates. The light will glow continuously to alert the driver of the vehicle in the blind area.

    note NOTE
    The door panel indicator light illuminates on the side of the vehicle where the system has detected another vehicle. If your vehicle is passed on both sides at the same time, both lights will illuminate.

    BLIS has an integrated function that alerts the driver if a fault should occur with the system. For example, if one or both of the system's cameras are obscured, a message (see the table on page 157) will appear in the information display in the instrument panel. If this occurs, clean the camera lenses. If necessary, the system can be temporarily switched off (for instructions, see page 157).

    156
     04 Comfort and driving pleasure

    Blind Spot Information System (option)

    When does BLIS function

    The system functions when your vehicle is moving at speeds above 6 mph (10 km/h).

    When you pass another vehicle:
    The system reacts when you pass another vehicle at a speed of up to 6 mph (10 km/h) faster than that vehicle.

    When you are passed by another vehicle:
    The system reacts if your vehicle is passed by another vehicle at a speed of up to 43 mph (70 km/h) faster than your vehicle.

    warning WARNING
  • BLIS does not function in sharp curves.
  • BLIS does not function when your vehicle is backing up.
  • If you are towing a wide trailer, this may prevent the BLIS cameras from detecting other vehicles in adjacent lanes.
  • How BLIS functions in daylight and darkness

    Daylight
    BLIS reacts to the shape of surrounding vehicles. The system is designed to help detect motor vehicles such as cars, trucks, buses, motorcycles, etc.

    Darkness
    BLIS reacts to the headlights of surrounding vehicles. In order to be detected by BLIS, a vehicle in the blind area must have its headlights on. This means, for example, that the system will not detect a trailer without headlights that is being towed behind a car or truck.

    warning WARNING
  • BLIS does not react to cyclists or mopeds.
  • BLIS does not react to vehicles that are standing still.
  • The function of the BLIS cameras may be affected by intense light, or when driving at night in areas where there are no external sources of light (e.g., street lights, other vehicles, etc.). In such cases, the system may react as if the cameras were obscured.
  • In both of the above mentioned conditions, a message will appear in the information display.
  • When driving in such conditions, the system's function will be limited or it may be temporarily switched off. See page 157 for instructions.
  • When the message is no longer displayed, BLIS will return to normal function.
  • The BLIS cameras have the same limitation as the human eye. In other words, their "vision is impaired" by adverse weather conditions such as heavy snowfall, dense fog, etc.

    Cleaning the BLIS camera lenses
    In order to function optimally, the BLIS camera lenses must be kept clean. They can be wiped clean with a soft cloth or wet sponge.

    CAUTION
  • Clean the lenses carefully to avoid scratching.
  • The lenses are electrically heated to help melt ice or snow. If necessary, gently brush away snow from the lenses.
  • Switching BLIS on and off

    BLIS is automatically activated when the ignition is switched on. The indicator lights will provide confirmation by flashing 3 times.

  • The system can be switched off by pressing the BLIS button in the center console (see the illustration above). The indicator light in the button goes out when the system is switched off, and a text message is displayed.
  • BLIS can be switched on again by pressing the button. The indicator light in the button will illuminate and a new text message will be displayed. Press the READ button (see age 116) to erase the message.
