Self Study Program 579 – The Touareg 2019 Driver Assist Systems

VAG SSP 579 – The Touareg 2019 Driver Assist Systems: Making Predictive and Safe Driving Possible. The Touareg 2019 features numerous driver assist systems that ensure stability, maintain distance from the vehicle in front, and support parking maneuvers. These systems rely on data and information from numerous sensors, including ultrasound, radar, and cameras, to monitor the vehicle environment in all directions.

Radar sensors in the front and rear areas of the vehicle recognize other vehicles and obstacles, while cameras recognize lane markings, traffic signs, traffic lights, and other road users. Ultrasonic sensors have been used for parking aids since the early nineties and have since expanded to measure and recognize parking spaces while driving.

Sensor fusion intelligently links all relevant data from the sensors, making automated driving possible while ensuring functional safety. Volkswagen aims to make accident-free driving possible by building vehicles with predictive systems.

Self Study Program 579 provides a detailed look at the driver assist systems of the Touareg 2019, serving as a valuable resource for technicians and enthusiasts interested in Volkswagen’s commitment to safe and predictive driving.
