Genesis G80 - Mechanical & Safety Features | Genesis USA
1

LANE KEEP ASSIST (LKA)

LANE KEEP ASSIST (LKA)

Lane Keeping Assist helps detect lane departure and applies slight corrective steering measures to help keep vehicle from drifting out of lane (reverse steering torque). Legal

x

The Genesis Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist is designed to notify the driver if the vehicle is leaving the lane of travel by shaking the steering wheel and flashing a display signal. Under certain circumstances, it may also provide light steering counter-assist to help guide the vehicle back into its lane. It is a supplemental assist, and does not replace the need for extreme care and attention by the driver.

 

Lane Departure Warning will not work under all circumstances. It functions when it is able to detect painted lane markings. It cannot function if the lane markings cannot be seen clearly if the lines are faded, or during dusk without headlamps on, with snow, rain, sleet, dust, leaves or standing water on road, sudden changes in brightness such as shadows, tunnel exits/entrances, low sunlight angle causing reflections, multiple lane markings or criss-crossed lines, tar crack sealer and cracked or broken road surfaces. It also may not function on very rough roads, when walls, curbs or concrete barriers are close by, or if following another car too closely. Since it “sees” the lane markings using a camera in the upper windshield area, it is imperative this area be clear and free of blockage such as stickers, dirt, snow, tinting material, markings and labels. Avoid putting objects on the dashboard that may reflect light or images onto the system camera area.

 

Lane Keep Assist is not a substitute for safe driving practices, but is a supplemental assist only. The driver is responsible for always maintaining command and control of the vehicle and must keep hands on the wheel at all times. Do not drive if you are drowsy. Drivers must read their Owner’s Manual thoroughly before using Lane Departure Warning and Lane Keep Assist.

SMART CRUISE CONTROL (SCC)

SMART CRUISE CONTROL (SCC)

A radar sensor on the front of the Genesis G80 detects the distance from the car ahead, automatically maintaining the distance and speed set by the driver. Legal

x

*Smart Cruise Control (SCC) is not a collision avoidance or warning device. SCC is for highway use only and should not be used in poor weather, heavy or varying traffic, or on winding or slippery roads. Driver remains responsible to slow or stop the vehicle to avoid a collision.

3

BLIND SPOT DETECTION (BSD)

BLIND SPOT DETECTION (BSD)

Blind Spot Detection (BSD) heightens awareness by alerting the driver when there is an object in a blind spot as they attempt to change lanes. Legal

x

NEVER rely completely on Blind Spot Detection (BSD) and be sure to use proper lane changing procedures. BSD WILL NOT detect every object or vehicle and will not prevent accidents. Always look over your shoulder and use your mirrors to confirm clearance. See Owner's manual for further product details and limitations.

4

AUTOMATIC EMERGENCY BRAKING (AEB)

AUTOMATIC EMERGENCY BRAKING (AEB)

Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) works in unison with the Smart Cruise Control system radar and Lane Keep Assist camera to detect a slower or stopped vehicle ahead and then swiftly engages automatic braking. Legal

x

*The Genesis Automatic Emergency Braking system is designed to assist drivers to avoid, or reduce the severity of, collisions with cars that have slowed or stopped in front of them. It is a supplemental assist, and does not replace the need for extreme care and attention by the driver. Automatic Emergency Braking may not stop the vehicle completely and will not avoid all collisions.
 
Automatic Emergency Braking uses a camera and distance radar to evaluate a slowing or stopped vehicle in front of your vehicle. It must be able to recognize the rear end of a car in front of your vehicle in order to respond. Automatic Emergency Braking will only sense cars directly in front of the owner's vehicle and traveling the same direction.
 
• It will not sense all cars, depending on the shape size, distance, angle and brake light configuration of the car in front.
• It may not sense a rapidly slowing vehicle that is positioned too closely in front of yours.
• It will not sense cars placed at angles or entering from the side of the path of travel.
• It will not detect any objects other than cars, including but not limited to walls, trees, bridges, guard rails, road signs, bicycles, motorcycles, boxes, animals, pedestrians or unusually shaped vehicles.
• Automatic Emergency Braking will experience limited visibility and may not work on winding roads or hilly roads, and during weather conditions such as rain, snow, and fog.
• For Automatic Emergency Braking to work, vehicle operators must ensure the radar (center of grille) and camera (upper windshield) surfaces are clean and clear of dirt or debris, ice/snow, stickers, labels, markings or any issue that affects forward "vision".
 
Automatic Emergency Braking is automatically disabled below 5 mph. From 5-50 mph, if a slowed or stopped vehicle in front of it is detected, it will apply full braking and may stop the vehicle if enough distance is available. From 50-112 mph, if a slowed or stopped vehicle in front of it is detected, it will apply partial braking to help avoid or reduce the severity of accidents. It is up to the driver to always carefully manage speed and direction of travel to suit present conditions. You should never rely on the Automatic Emergency Braking enhancement to drive or stop the vehicle for you.

**Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) with Pedestrian Detection detects pedestrians, but not in all conditions. The system initiates full braking at speeds between 5-28 mph when a pedestrian is standing, or from 5-43 mph when a pedestrian is moving. AEB is not a substitute for safe driving. See Owner’s Manual for details and limitations.

Claim based on comparison of specifications on manufacturer websites.

Listed below are the conditions referenced in the owner’s manual where the system may not detect a pedestrian:
· The pedestrian is not fully captured by the camera sensor, or the pedestrian does not walk in the upright position.
· The pedestrian moves very fast.
· The pedestrian abruptly appears in front
· The pedestrian wears clothes in the color similar to the background
· The outside is too bright or too dark
· The vehicle drives at night or in the darkness
· There is an item similar to a person’s body structure
· The pedestrian is small
· The pedestrian has impaired mobility
· It is difficult to distinguish the pedestrian from the surroundings
· The sensor recognition is limited
· There is a group of pedestrians
