Key Claims:

  • BAS PLUS with Cross-Traffic Assist is able to detect an imminent collision with crossing traffic and warn you before it is too late. This is based on data supplied by the stereo camera and radar sensors which monitor the traffic conditions.

  • BAS PLUS with Cross-Traffic Assist is active at speeds of up to 72 km/h and can significantly reduce the likelihood of an accident at junctions. If a collision should ever occur, however, for the most part the accident does tend to be less severe.


Junction safety, collision avoidance


There is no evidence to show the effectiveness of the system; however, it does show how it attempts to mitigate a cross junction crash scenario.
