The Active Driving Assistant comes standard in the 2018 6 Series Gran Turismo, which is a first for a BMW model. It essentially acts like a personal co-pilot with a multitude of driving assistant functions made possible through the use of cameras, radars and ultrasonic sensors that monitor the vehicle’s surroundings.

Features of Active Driving Assistant include Active Blind Spot Detection, Lane Departure Warning, Daytime Pedestrian Protection, Frontal Collision Warning w/City Collision Mitigation, Speed Limit Info and Cross-traffic alert rear. The optional Driving Assistant Plus Package also adds Active Cruise Control with Stop & Go, Active Lane Keeping Assistant with Side Collision Avoidance, Traffic Jam Assistant, Evasion Aid and Cross-traffic alert front.

Active Lane Keeping Assistant, one of the highlights of the Active Driving Assistant, represents a significant step towards automated driving. The system uses road markings and the vehicles driving ahead as a means of orientation and works with the driver to help keep the vehicle in the detected lane with steering assistance. Active Lane Keeping Assistant is designed as a hands-on system and provides up to 50 seconds of hands-off time steering support. A sensitive hands-on-wheel detection recognizes contact even when only a few fingers briefly touch the wheel.
