The Travel Assist system uses the camera in the rear-view mirror to scan the traffic signs on the current stretch of road and notify the driver of traffic signs. The system is able to identify signs on both the left and right sides, as well as above the road. Moreover, it is able to identify variable traffic signing, too (electronic information boards).
A picture processing module searches the scanned pictures for known traffic signs and compares the results with the navigation data. Speed limit signs (e.g. ‘80 km/h’) and no overtaking signs are evaluated – in addition to any supplementary instructions.
The Travel Assist system is available for the ŠKODA OCTAVIA, ŠKODA SUPERB, ŠKODA KAROQ and ŠKODA KODIAQ.
