FIAT 500 «la Prima» Technology
The new forthcoming 500 «la Prima» will be the first small car to bring Level 2 Autonomous Driving, which means a superior level of safety for urban mobility. Your car will be your trusted co-driver by accelerating, braking and keeping in lane autonomously. The new forthcoming 500 «la Prima» will be able to make your commute travels smoother in many ways. Firstly, the car will read the road signs and suggest what speed you should keep to on that specific road. Then, once you’ll have set the speed and distance from the steering wheel controls, the system will autonomously keep the set distance from the vehicle in front (when over 18 mph) and it will stop when the traffic does, as well as keeping you at in the centre of the lane (when over 37 mph). The new forthcoming 500 «la Prima» will help you to stay awake behind the wheel. The system can detect the initial signs of fatigue by monitoring lateral movements of the vehicle, advising the driver to take a break. An acoustic and visual warning will be made and displayed on the instrument cluster. The new forthcoming 500 «la Prima» will help you to prevent unintended crossing of the white lines, keeping you on track with an active action on the steering wheel and protecting yourself and others from potential danger. When the function detects that the vehicle is about to unintentionally move out of the lane, it warns the driver by means of a visual, audible and haptic signal as steering wheel vibration, in order to counter steer accordingly.
