Setting a warning distance

Setting a warning distance  - Operation - Collision warning with Full Auto-brake and Pedestrian Detection* - Comfort and driving pleasure - Volvo S60 Owners Manual - Volvo S60

This setting determines the distance at which the visual and audible warnings are triggered. Select Long, Normal or Short by pressing MY CAR on the center console control panel and going to Settings Car settings Driver support systems Collision Warning Warning distance.

The warning distance determines the level of sensitivity used by the system. The warning distance Long provides an earlier warning. Begin by using Long and if the system gives too many warnings, try changing to Normal.

WARNING WARNING

  • The setting Short should only be used in situations where traffic is light and moving at low speeds.
  • Collision Warning alerts the driver to the risk of a collision but this function cannot reduce the driver’s reaction time.
  • For Collision Warning to be as effective as possible, it is recommended that Distance Alert be set to 4 or 5, see page 165.

NOTE NOTE

  • When Adaptive Cruise Control is used, the warning light and signal will be used by that function, even if the warnings provided by Collision Warning have been deactivated by the driver.
  • In situations where traffic is moving at considerably different speeds, or if the vehicle ahead brakes suddenly, warnings may be considered to be late, even if the setting Long has been selected.
