Title: APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR RESPONDING TO A TARGET VEHICLE IN A LATERAL POSITION
Abstract:
A controller for a driver assistance system (10) comprises an output for transmitting a braking control signal and control logic. The control logic is capable of identifying a target vehicle (32), determining an intervention zone and determining an edge zone. The controller will transmit the braking control signal to request activation of the brakes on the host vehicle in response to the edge zone being equal to or less than zero and the target vehicle being within the intervention zone.
