A new generation of driver assistant technologies again put the A8 squarely at the very forefront of automotive technology. Utilising an advanced system of ultrasonic sensors, 360 degree cameras, radar sensors and laser scanners, the A8 is able to constantly monitor and assess potential collision hazards all around the car and initiate appropriate preventive measures. Its myriad systems, from adaptive cruise assist with lane guidance assist to Audi pre-sense front to guard, turn assist and collision avoidance assist, make the new A8 one of the safest vehicles on the road. The newly developed crossing assist monitors the area in front of and on the sides of the vehicle at intersections and provides warnings of a potential collision, while exit warning warns occupants alighting from the car of approaching vehicles or bikes. Cross traffic assist rear enables safe reversing when visibility is poor, warning the driver of approaching vehicles, while myriad other systems discreetly monitor surroundings and the ever-changing situations to ensure swift, decisive action never required.
