BMW 3 Series G20 (2018-2024) Owners Manual / Driver assistance systems / PDC Park Distance Control / Depending on the equipment version: emergency brake function, Active PDC

Concept

The emergency braking function of PDC initiates an emergency braking in case of acute risk of collision.

General information

This function may not be available. Contact your authorized dealer's service center or another qualified service center as to whether this additional function is currently in your vehicle or when it can be installed in your vehicle in the future.

Due to system limits, a collision cannot be prevented under all circumstances.

The function is available below walking speed when driving in reverse or rolling backward.

A press of the accelerator pedal interrupts the braking intervention.

After emergency braking to a stop, further creeping toward an obstacle is possible. To creep toward the obstacle, lightly press the accelerator pedal and release it again.

If the accelerator pedal is depressed longer, the vehicle drives off. Manual braking is possible at any time.

The system uses the ultrasound sensors of PDC and parking assistant.

Safety information

Warning The system cannot serve as a substitute for the driver's personal judgment in assessing the traffic conditions. There is a risk of accident.

Adjust driving style to traffic conditions. Watch traffic and vehicle surroundings closely and actively intervene where appropriate.

Temporary switching off

The emergency brake function can be switched off temporarily: Confirm the message on the Control Display.

During continued driving in this surrounding situation, no further emergency braking will occur.

Adjusting

Concept

Driver assistance systems

To protect the sides of the vehicle, obstacle markings are displayed on the sides of the vehicle.

  • Color markings: warning against detected obstacles.
  • Gray markings, hatched area: no obstacles were detected.
  • No markings, black area: the area next to the vehicle was not yet captured.

Limits of side protection

The system only displays stationary obstacles that were previously detected by sensors while passing them.

The system does not detect whether an obstacle moves later on. If the vehicle is stationary, the markings are shown in black after a certain time.

The area next to the vehicle must be newly captured.
