“Forward Collision Warning Calibration”
For further demonstration, FCW operates by monitoring the road ahead of your vehicle, especially the vehicle in front of you. It calculates the physical space between you and the vehicle ahead while estimating a safe following distance. However, when the car ahead slows and that distance shrinks, a succession of escalating warnings will occur, in the same fashion as forward collision avoidance. Firstly, you’ll receive an audible alert. Secondly, a visual indicator will show on your dashboard. Thirdly, you’ll feel your seat or steering wheel vibrate. These alerts will assist you to make the best possible correction, such as braking or steering away to avoid a collision. Given these points, it’s important to schedule regular calibrations for your FCW and FCA.
