Pedestrian and Cyclist Detection with Full Auto Brake is designed to assist the driver if there is a risk of a collision with a pedestrian, a cyclist, a vehicle ahead that is at a standstill or one that is moving in the same direction as your vehicle.
If the message Windscreen Sensors blocked is displayed, this means that the camera is obscured and cannot detect pedestrians, cyclists, vehicles or road marker lines in front of the vehicle.
This, in turn, means that Pedestrian and Cyclist Detection with Full Auto Brake, Driver Alert Control, Lane Departure Warning or Lane Keeping Aid will not have full functionality.
