Traffic Sign Recognition

The Traffic Sign Recognition system (TSR) comes in handy when you happen to miss a traffic sign while driving on any kind of road as it recognises and keeps track of the signs you just passed by.

What is the traffic sign recognition system?

TSR monitors the traffic signs using both a forward-facing digital camera placed behind the rear-view mirror and the navigation system data.

Three types of signs can be detected:
1. speed limit signs
2. temporary speed limit signs
3. overtaking restriction areas

The active driving display with traffic sign recognition will inform you of the current traffic signs by displaying all information and the related icons in the upper area of the instrument cluster.

The navigation system

TSR uses the data from the navigation system in order to provide information even when the camera is not able to provide traffic sign detection and recognition on the road. Some examples of these cases are:

  • low visibility: insufficient road lighting, heavy rain, snow, thick fog
  • light reflection: excessive glare from direct sunlight or reflections from oncoming traffic
  • damaged traffic signs: scraped signs, faded or discoloured signs, broken signs
  • rotated or fallen poles: especially when near construction areas

Keep in mind

  • You must always be aware of all traffic signs, especially when there is poor visibility due to insufficient road lighting, heavy rain, snow or thick fog.
  • The display mode on the instrument cluster and the warning sensitivity are fully configurable.
  • The system can be set to display the traffic signs when your speed is equal to the speed limit allowed, or when it exceeds it by 5 or 10 mph (5 or 10 km/h).
  • Cars with traffic sign recognition are intended to be used only by licensed and alert users and under the conditions specified in a vehicle’s Owner’s Manual.
