Speed Limit Pilot


The Speed Limit Pilot detects speed limits and transfers this information automatically to the Distance Pilot DISTRONIC. Manual speed control is then no longer necessary, although it can still be performed manually if required.

Observes speed limits automatically.

Changes may have been made since these images and films were produced.

The Speed Limit Pilot registers speed limits using a stereo camera behind the windscreen near the rear-view mirror as well as via the navigation function (COMAND Online). This enables the anticipatory adjustment of the speed, e.g. when entering towns.

Detected speed limits are transferred to the Distance Pilot DISTRONIC where they are adopted as the set speed. This means the vehicle speed is adapted automatically to variable speed limits and when driving in towns – providing a considerable increase in comfort and safety.

The Speed Limit Pilot is part of a new generation of driving assistance packages which relieve the strain on the driver by enabling partially autonomous driving on motorways and country roads and thus increasing the level of safety and comfort for all road users.
