 Audi connect

All-new Audi A3, interior, monitor with menu options.

Different options from the menu: navigation, telephone, radio, media, or car settings (parameters of the Audi Drive Select for comfort, auto, dynamic, individual or efficiency modes).

The Audi connect system bundles all infotainment technologies with the Internet, infrastructure and other vehicles.

The main component is the Mobile phone preparation – High with Online Services as a supplement to MMI navigation plus. It produces the connection to the Internet via a UMTS module. Passengers can surf and email with up to eight mobile devices via an integrated WLAN hotspot.

For the driver, the Mobile phone preparation – High with Online Services option brings customised Internet services, including navigation with images from Google Earth, the new web radio function Audi music stream, Google POI search by voice control and Google Street View.

All-new Audi A3, interior, instruments cluster with Driver Information System.

Driver Information System between the two round instruments.

The Audi online traffic information option exploits anonymous information from the movement profiles of hundreds of thousands of smartphones and navigation units that are travelling on the road, to offer an up-to-date picture of the traffic situation, which incorporates country roads and cities. The driver sees his or her individual route on the MMI monitor shown in green, yellow, orange or red – depending on traffic load.

 Adaptive cruise control

The driver assistance systems include the Audi adaptive cruise control (ACC), which maintains the selected gap with the car ahead by automatically accelerating or braking – up to a vehicle speed of 150 km/h (93mph).

Interior options include the LED interior lighting package, and an electronic climate control with economy mode.

Audi says that with the optional assistance package, which combines several systems, the control range is extended up to 200 km/h (124mph). In case of an impending collision, the ACC system warns the driver in progressive stages, and can even initiate, if necessary, a partial braking to reduce the car’s speed at impact.

In case of collision, the new system is activated to prevent uncontrolled secondary car travel after the initial collision and simultaneously activates the interior lighting. If the Mobile phone preparation – High with Online Services option is fitted, a call is also made to emergency services. Activated at speeds below 30 km/h (19mph), the system applies full braking in an emergency situation, which can also prevent secondary collisions with pedestrians.

 Side / active lane assist

Other driver assistance systems include the Audi side assist, which monitors traffic at the back of the car with the radar technology to simplify lane changes for the driver, while Audi active lane assist helps to stay in lane by making a slight steering correction if necessary.

The system’s video camera is also used by the traffic sign detection system; it shows speed limits and other traffic signs on a monitor in conjunction with MMI navigation plus.

The rest recommendation system detects when the driver is fatigued, and advise him / her to take some rest.

 Parking assistance

Other optional systems provide parking assistance. The park assist takes over steering duties during perpendicular and parallel parking. If necessary, it can make multiple forward and reverse manoeuvres. Its 12 ultrasonic sensors detect obstacles around the car, and it can also now be supplemented by a reversing camera.

The parking system plus with surround view cameras uses four small cameras (in the front grille, at the rear and in the door mirror housings) to record images of the car’s immediate surroundings.

Meanwhile, a computer assembles these images, and the driver can call up different views on the large on-board monitor; shown at the top is a bird’s-eye view.

Park assist plus with surround view cameras can help in tricky manoeuvres, as there are special views that show the areas in front of and behind the Audi A3, and the cameras also give drivers a view of cross traffic.

 Pre sense

Another high-end option is the Audi pre sense basic safety system. When it detects an unstable driving state via the sensors of the ESP stabilization system, it tenses the front seat belts with electric motors and closes the sunroof and side windows.
