Safety - New Jeep® Compass e-Hybrid | Jeep® UK
The new Jeep® Compass e-Hybrid showcases Adaptive Cruise Control as a standard feature. It’s the electronic system tasked with maintaining the vehicle’s cruising speed and a safe distance from the car ahead. In the event of braking or slowing down, the system automatically adapts the speed to maintain the distance.
The Lane Keep Assist works to keep the car at the center of the lane. If the car approaches the edge of the lane, this system is able to act directly on the steering wheel to correct the vehicle’s position.
Jeep® ’s take on the future of mobility is called Highway Assist System (HAS) - the new level 2 automated driving system featured for the first time on a Jeep® model. This system combines Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Keep Assist to keep the car at a safe distance from a vehicle in front, constant speed and lane alignment on highways. Jeep® Compass is the first car of range the enables the Level II Autonomous Driving.
The front camera detects the presence of road signs and reports the speed limit directly on the digital dashboard.
The Traffic Sign Information technology is integrated in the Uconnect™ NAV infotainment system, detecting road signs as indicated on TomTom™ maps and adapting the car’s speed based on current speed limits.
The Intelligent Speed Assist system is engineered to perfectly complement the Traffic Sign Recognition and Traffic Sign Information systems, by automatically acting on the cruising speed to adapt it to current speed limits.
This system is engineered to detect the driver’s fatigue level while suggesting the ideal moment to take a break from driving. The dashboard features a sensor that scans the driver’s retina every seven minutes to assess its degree of alertness and, in case it detects the need to take a break, it alerts the driver with an audible signal while turning on a coffee cup-shaped light on the dashboard.
The new Jeep® Compass e-Hybrid is able to prevent or mitigate the consequences of a head-on collision with vehicles, obstacles or pedestrians. If the driver is not responsive enough, the front-end radar detects the presence of obstacles in the car’s trajectory and activates the autonomous braking system to avoid an impact or to mitigate its possible consequences.
