Different pilot and assistance functions can noticeably take the strain off the driver in terms of driving tasks, particularly when it comes to automatically controlling distance and speed as well as assistance with steering. For example, Steering Pilot generates steering torque which helps the driver to keep the vehicle in the centre of its lane on straight roads and slight bends, taking its guidance from vehicles ahead and lane markings. While the Distance Pilot DISTRONIC works in the speed range from 0 to 210 km/h, also reacting to stationary vehicles at low speeds.
