Driver Condition Monitor (DCM)
Taking a long drive can be tiring, and when fatigue sets in, it can become dangerous. The Driver Condition Monitor (DCM) on the 2017 Land Rover Discovery Sport is able to evaluate different driving inputs in order to determine whether or not a driver might be tired. If the system determines that this might be the case, it provides audible and visual notifications to suggest that the driver take a break.
Maneuvering an SUV—even one that’s compact—can sometimes prove to be difficult, especially in a busy parking lot. The Park Assist system is able to help you make difficult parallel and perpendicular parking maneuvers. It does so with the help of assorted graphics and notifications and is even able to self-maneuver the vehicle into the spot. Don’t worry, though—you’ll still have control over the brake and accelerator.
Surround Camera System
Get a better view of what’s around you with the help of the Surround Camera System, which gives you a 360-degree look around the vehicle’s perimeter. This system is particularly helpful in situations when you’re getting out of a parking spot, towing a large object behind you, or switching lanes. You can even zoom in and out to see objects that might not initially be in your line of sight.
Autonomous Emergency Braking
Utilizing a camera system that’s located at the front of the vehicle, this system is able to detect if the front of your vehicle is getting too close to the car in front of it too quickly. If the system detects a rapidly shrinking following distance, it sends out a forward collision warning to the driver. If the driver fails to take action in time, the system is able to automatically apply the brakes in order to help mitigate the effects of a collision.
