Peugeot 2008. assistance

This system:

  • warns the driver that their vehicle is at risk of collision with the vehicle in front, a pedestrian or, depending on version, a cyclist.
  • reduces the vehicle's speed to avoid a collision or limit its severity.

Peugeot 2008. assistance The system also takes motorcyclists and animals into account; however, animals below 0.5  m tall and objects on the road are not necessarily detected.

This system is comprised of three functions:

  • Distance Alert.
  • Intelligent emergency braking assistance.
  • Active Safety Brake (automatic emergency braking).

Peugeot 2008. assistance

The vehicle has a multifunction camera located at the top of the windscreen and, depending on version, a radar located in the front bumper.

Peugeot 2008. assistance This system does not avoid the need for vigilance on the part of the driver.

This system is designed to assist the driver and improve road safety.

It is the driver's responsibility to continuously monitor traffic conditions in accordance with applicable driving regulations.

Peugeot 2008. assistance As soon as the system detects a potential obstacle, it prepares the braking circuit in case automatic braking is needed. This may cause a slight noise and a slight sensation of deceleration.

Deactivation / Activation

By default, the system is automatically activated at every engine start.

Peugeot 2008. assistance It is set via the Driving  / Vehicle touch screen menu.

Peugeot 2008. assistance Deactivation of the system is signalled by the illumination of this warning lamp, accompanied by the display of a message.

Operating conditions and limits

ESC system in working order.

ASR system activated.

Seat belts fastened for all passengers.

Stabilised speed on unwinding roads.

In the following cases, deactivating the system via the vehicle's configuration menu is advised:

  • Carrying long objects on roof bars.
  • Vehicles with snow chains fitted.
  • Before using an automatic car wash, with the engine running.
  • Before placing the vehicle on a rolling road in a workshop.
  • Towed vehicle, engine running.
  • Following an impact to the windscreen close to the detection camera.

Peugeot 2008. assistance The system is automatically deactivated after the use of certain types of "space-saver" type spare wheel (smaller diameter) is detected, or if a fault with brake pedal switch or at least two brake lamps is detected.

Peugeot 2008. assistance It can be dangerous to drive if the brake lamps are not in perfect working order.

Peugeot 2008. assistance It is possible that warnings are not given, are given too late or seem unjustified.

The driver must always stay in control of the vehicle and be prepared to react at any time to avoid an accident.

Peugeot 2008. assistance After an impact, the function automatically stops operating.

Contact a PEUGEOT dealer or a qualified workshop to have the system checked.

Distance Alert

This function warns the driver that their vehicle is at risk of a collision with the vehicle in front, or a pedestrian or cyclist present in their traffic lane.

Modifying the alert trigger threshold

This trigger threshold determines the sensitivity with which the function warns of the risk of collision.

Peugeot 2008. assistance The threshold is set via the Driving / Vehicle touch screen menu.

  • Select one of the three pre-defined thresholds: "Far", "Normal" or "Close".

The last threshold selected is memorised when the ignition is switched off.

Operation

Depending on the degree of risk of collision detected by the system and the alert trigger threshold chosen by the driver, several different levels of alert may be triggered and displayed in the instrument panel.

The system takes account of the vehicle dynamics, the speed of your vehicle and the one in front, the environmental conditions and the operation of the vehicle (actions on the pedals, the steering wheel, etc.) to trigger the alert at the best moment.

Peugeot 2008. assistance Level 1 (orange): visual alert only, indicating that the vehicle in front is very close.

The message  "Vehicle close" is displayed.

Peugeot 2008. assistance Level 2 (red): visual and audible alert, indicating that a collision is imminent.

The message "Brake!" is displayed.

Level 3: in some cases, a vibration alert in the form of micro-braking can be given, confirming the risk of collision.

Peugeot 2008. assistance Where the speed of your vehicle is too high approaching another vehicle, the first level of alert may not be displayed: the level 2 alert may be displayed directly.

Important: the level 1 alert is not displayed when there is a stationary obstacle or when the "Close" trigger threshold has been selected.

Intelligent emergency braking assistance

If the driver brakes, but not sufficiently to avoid a collision, this system will supplement the braking, within the limits of the laws of physics.

This assistance will only be provided if the driver presses the brake pedal.

Active Safety Brake

Peugeot 2008. assistance

This function, also called automatic emergency braking, intervenes following the alerts if the driver does not react quickly enough and does not operate the vehicle's brakes.

It aims to reduce the speed of impact or avoid a collision where the driver fails to react.

Operation

The system operates subject to the following conditions:

  • The vehicle's speed does not exceed 37 mph (60 km/h) when a pedestrian is detected.
  • The vehicle's speed does not exceed 50 mph (80 km/h) when a stationary vehicle or a cyclist is detected.
  • The vehicle's speed is between 6 mph and 53 mph (10  km/h and 85 km/h) (versions with camera only) or 87 mph (140 km/h) (versions with camera and radar) when a moving vehicle is detected.

Peugeot 2008. assistance This warning lamp immediately flashes (for approximately 10 seconds) when the function acts on the vehicle’s braking.

With an automatic gearbox or drive selector, in the event of automatic emergency braking until the vehicle comes to a complete stop, keep the brake pedal pressed down to prevent the vehicle from moving off again.

With a manual gearbox, in the event of automatic emergency braking until the vehicle comes to a complete stop, the engine may stall.

Peugeot 2008. assistance The driver can maintain control of the vehicle at any time by firmly turning the steering wheel and/or firmly depressing the accelerator pedal.

Peugeot 2008. assistance The brake pedal may vibrate slightly while the function is operating.

If the vehicle comes to a complete stop, automatic braking is maintained for 1 to 2 seconds.

Malfunction

Peugeot 2008. assistance In the event of a system malfunction, this warning lamp comes on on the instrument panel, accompanied by an onscreen message and an audible signal.

Contact a PEUGEOT dealer or a qualified workshop to have the system checked.
