VW Pedestrian Monitoring in Memphis, TN

Volkswagen vehicles come with a variety of safety technologies and driver assistance features to help protect you when maneuvering in a parking lot or driving on the road. One innovative technology that's available is Pedestrian Monitoring, which allows you to better keep an eye on other vehicles.

How it works

For Pedestrian Monitoring to function properly, the VW vehicle needs to have a radar located discreetly behind the VW emblem, which is on the vehicle's front. Whether you drive during the day or at night, the radar can monitor the area up to 400 feet in front of the vehicle. It can sweep this area hundreds of times each minute. After collecting data, the system can then search for the signature of pedestrians who are walking into or out of the vehicle's path.

What it does

If Pedestrian Monitoring detects a pedestrian in front of your vehicle, it can act to help you avoid the pedestrian when the proper conditions are met. When you are driving between roughly 4 and 18.6 mph, the system can apply the brakes to either slow down or stop your vehicle if movement is detected. Between 18.6 and 40 mph, the technology can warn you about a pedestrian by sending visual and audible alerts. After being alerted, if you do not act, the system can then apply the brakes.

When and where it's available

Once the speed of your vehicle rises above 40 mph, Pedestrian Monitoring does not operate. The system also may not work if the radar sensor is covered in snow or dirt. However, if you are driving on a foggy day, the technology can still help you stay more aware of pedestrians. Pedestrian Monitoring comes standard on the Golf, Golf Alltrack, Golf R, Atlas and Arteon. It's also available on every 2019 model, besides the Jetta, Beetle and Passat.
