Volvo XC90: Driver support / Pilot Assist * standby mode

(Option/accessory.)

(Depending on market, this function can be either standard or optional.)

Pilot Assist can be deactivated and put in standby mode. This may happen automatically or be due to driver intervention.

Standby mode means that the function is selected in the instrument panel but not activated. In standby mode, Pilot Assist will not regulate the speed or distance to the vehicle ahead or provide steering assistance.

Standby mode due to action by the driver

Pilot Assist will be deactivated and put in standby mode if any of the following occurs:

  • The brakes are applied.
  • The gear selector is moved to N.
  • A turn signal is used for more than 1 minute.
  • The vehicle is driven faster than the set speed for more than 1 minute.

Automatic standby mode

WARNING

With automatic standby mode, the driver is warned by an acoustic signal and a message on the instrument panel.

  • The driver must then regulate vehicle speed, apply the brakes if necessary, and maintain a safe distance to other vehicles.

The function may automatically go into standby mode if one of the following occurs.

  • One of the systems that Pilot Assist is dependent on stops working, such as Electronic Stability Control1.
  • The driver's hands are not on the steering wheel.
  • The driver opens the door.
  • The driver unbuckles the seat belt.
  • The engine speed (rpm) is too low/high.
  • One or more of the wheels lose traction.
  • The brake temperature is high.
  • The parking brake is applied.
  • The camera and radar unit is covered by snow or heavy rain (the camera lens/radar waves are blocked).
  • Your vehicle's speed goes below 5 km/h (3 mph) and Pilot Assist cannot determine if the vehicle ahead is stationary or if it is another object, e.g. a speed bump.
  • Your vehicle's speed goes below 5 km/h (3 mph) and the vehicle ahead turns so that Pilot Assist no longer has a vehicle to follow.
