Lane Change Assist 

Lane Change Assist uses radar sensors to monitor the area behind the car and the blind spot. From a speed around 18 mph, the system provides information about cars approaching from behind, or in the blind spot,via an optical signal in the window triangle. On the motorway especially, theLane Change Assist provides extra comfort and safety, but it does not interfere with the driving and it can be deactivated any time.

Adaptive Cruise Control

Available as an optional extra on many vehicles. Theses systems regulate the speed of your vehicle automatically, depending on the distance to the car in front, by the radar sensor monitoring the area in front of your car. If you have set a certain speed and you are getting closer to a car in front of you that is travelling slower, then your system will reduce your speed by taking away some acceleration and careful braking, until the pre-set distance has been achieved.Your vehicle now keeps that distance from the car travelling in front of you.If it applies the brakes, then the adaptive cruise control also reduces the speed, until the vehicle reaches a standstill.

The system also prepares for braking, if the distance to the car in front is decreasing. It will normally warn you with sound and visual signals if it recognises the situation as a potential accident risk. In addition, the brake is briefly engaged.

At Chartwell we are able to reset and reinstate these systems after an accident or repair to ensure your vehicle behaves as the manufacturer intended.This is a crucial part of any repair and it requires approved measuring equipment and specific manufacturer training to master these complicated systems.
