Self Study Program 483 – Audi A7 Sportback – Convenience electronics and Audi active lane assist

VAG SSP 483. On his first outing with an Audi A7 Sportback, the driver might well have to face the challenge of finding the ignition lock in the vehicle. However, no matter how closely he looks, he won’t find one!

In the Audi A7 Sportback, for the first time a model from Audi will no longer require an ignition lock from the outset. A keyless starting system, frequently also referred to as Keyless Go, has become standard equipment.

Pressing the start-stop button in the centre console starts the engine. This feature is familiar from the Advanced Key optional extra in other models. A Keyless Entry system is offered as an option, the ideal supplement to the keyless starting system.

Another highlight in the Audi A7 Sportback is the introduction of the new Audi active lane assist. This new generation of the lane departure warning intervenes in steering to prevent the driver from leaving his driving lane inadvertently. Depending on the set mode, continuous steering interventions are initiated with the aim of keeping the vehicle in the centre of the lane – or only when the vehicle approaches lane boundary lines – and drawing the driver’s attention to what might be an inadvertent departure from the lane.

If enabled in the MMI, a warning for the driver by means of a vibrating steering wheel is also available to the customer in the new generation of the lane departure warning.

It has been possible to implement Audi active lane assist by deploying an electromechanical steering system in the Audi A7 Sportback.
