A DEFINITIVE GUIDE INTO THE NEW OUTLANDER’S ADVANCED SAFETY AND DRIVER ASSISTANCE TECHNOLOGIES
The next-generation Mitsubishi Outlander comes with a wide range of advanced safety and driver assistance technologies designed to improve the driving experience and keep drivers and passengers safe. These technologies include automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, a rearview camera, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, a 360-degree camera, automatic high beams, and a head-up display.
All these features are designed to give drivers more confidence and control on the road and can help to prevent accidents and make driving more enjoyable. Also, these features are continuously updated to meet the latest standards and regulations.
Automatic emergency braking (AEB)
Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) is one of the vital safety features of the new Mitsubishi Outlander. This system uses sensors to detect potential collisions and automatically triggers the brakes if the driver does not respond in time. This can help to prevent accidents or reduce the severity of a crash.
Lane departure warning (LDW)
Lane Departure Warning (LDW) is another critical safety feature that helps to keep drivers on the right track. This system uses cameras to detect when the vehicle drifts out of its lane. It then alerts the driver with a warning sound. This can help prevent accidents caused by driver distraction or drowsiness.
Rearview camera feature
The rearview camera feature in the Mitsubishi Outlander works by using a camera mounted at the rear of the vehicle. This camera captures an image of the area behind the car and sends it to a display screen in the front of the vehicle, usually located on the dashboard or the infotainment system’s screen. The driver can use this image to see what is behind them while reversing or parking, making it easier to maneuver and avoid obstacles.
When the driver shifts into reverse gear, the rearview camera automatically turns on and displays the view behind the vehicle on the screen. The image is usually displayed in color and is designed to be as clear and detailed as possible, making it easy for the driver to see what is behind them. Some systems also include guidelines that help drivers judge distances and navigate tight spaces.
The rearview camera feature can also be activated manually by pressing a button on the dashboard or the infotainment system. This allows the driver to use the camera at any time, even when not reversing.
Generally, the rearview camera is a feature that helps drivers park and reverse their vehicles safely. This camera displays the view behind the car on the infotainment screen, making it easier to maneuver in tight spaces and avoid obstacles.
Adaptive cruise control (ACC)
The adaptive cruise control (ACC) system in the Mitsubishi Outlander uses radar sensors and cameras to detect the distance and speed of the vehicle in front and automatically adjusts the speed of the Outlander to maintain a safe following distance. This allows the driver to set a desired speed and let the car do the work, reducing driver fatigue and improving traffic flow.
When the ACC system is activated, it uses radar sensors to detect the distance and speed of the vehicle in front. The system then automatically adjusts the speed of the Outlander to maintain a safe following distance. If the car in front slows down, the Outlander will automatically slow down, keeping a safe space from the vehicle ahead. Once the car in front speeds up or moves out of the way, the Outlander will resume the set speed.
The driver can also manually adjust the following distance using the controls on the steering wheel or the infotainment system. Additionally, the driver can deactivate the ACC system at any time by pressing the brake pedal or the accelerator.
Blind-spot monitoring (BSM)
Blind-Spot Monitoring (BSM) and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA) are features that help drivers to detect vehicles in their blind spot and when reversing. BSM uses sensors to detect vehicles in the driver’s blind spot and alerts the driver with a warning light on the side mirror. RCTA uses sensors to monitor vehicles approaching from the side while reversing and alerts the driver with a warning sound.
The 360-degree camera is a feature that provides a bird’s-eye view of the vehicle’s surroundings, which is displayed on the infotainment screen. This feature helps drivers to navigate tight spaces and avoid obstacles.
Automatic high beams (AHB)
The Automatic High Beams (AHB) is a feature that automatically switches between high and low beams depending on the lighting conditions to improve visibility and prevent glare for oncoming traffic. This helps improve visibility and enhance the driver’s road visibility.
Head-up display (HUD)
The head-up display is a feature that projects important information such as speed, navigation, and safety alerts directly onto the windshield so that the driver can keep their eyes on the road. This helps to reduce driver distraction and improve safety.
The HUD system in Mitsubishi Outlander uses a small projector behind the dashboard, which shines an image onto a clear film on the windshield. The image is projected at a specific angle in front of the driver, just above the vehicle’s hood.
The information displayed on the HUD can include the vehicle’s current speed, the road’s speed limit, navigation instructions, and safety alerts such as lane departure and forward collision warnings. The driver can customize the display to show additional information, such as fuel level, outside temperature, and average fuel consumption.
The HUD system in the Mitsubishi Outlander also can adjust the display’s brightness and contrast depending on the lighting conditions of the vehicle. Consequently, the driver can always see the information clearly, even in bright sunlight.
The next-generation Mitsubishi Outlander comes with a wide range of advanced safety and driver assistance technologies designed to improve the driving experience and keep drivers and passengers safe. These features include Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Departure Warning, Rearview Camera, Adaptive Cruise Control, Blind-Spot Monitoring, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, 360-degree camera, Automatic High Beams, and Head-Up Display. These features not only help to improve visibility and enhance the driver’s visibility of the road but also reduce driver distraction, improve traffic flow and reduce the severity of a crash.
