The long range radar (Advanced Radar Sensor, ARS 410) of Continental makes this possible. It detects objects and especially pedestrians at a distance of up to 170 m and warns the driver in time. Automatic braking is even initiated in an emergency. This function is now standard in the new VW Tiguan.
