Give it a couple of years and Audi will have lots more surprises for you, with fully autonomous, totally electric, 'cars' (livery vehicles).

I would hope that the bolsters would eventually deflate to the previous setting, but instead they remained on the fully inflated setting and I had no manually set them to a comfortable level.
Working as intended as stated by the people defending this flawed system.

I always tell people a system can be working by design but it was a flawed design to begin with.

It looks as though it can perform two functions: high beam assist and traffic sign recognition (with an upgrade at the dealership).

Those in the US have the other type of camera mounted higher up in the windshield.
Our deduction was right!

In the Self Study Programme (Vehicle electrics and electronics), they state that this camera is Only installed if the customer has ordered main beam assist without further assistance systems, such as Audi active Lane Assist or traffic sign recognition.

FWIW ...today pre-sense saved my bacon, from rear ending a truck that slammed on its brakes just as I was looking right, to ensure the lane was clear, before moving into it (surface road). It kicked in and lightly slammed on the brakes, but not to a full stop. I was pretty happy it helped out in that moment.

So it was the Pre-warning that alerted you and then you braked yourself? Or was it PS that braked and stopped inches from the car in front? What do you have your Pre-warning set to? Late or Early?

Yes, the alert/red triangle appeared and the car braked from what I recall ...things happen so fast. I was just starting my move to the right lane, so part of the car nose was partially unobstructed by the truck in front, so it didnít hardcore slam on the brakes. But enough to where you hear the grind on the rotors. I believe I have presense set to late. Iíll check later and if itís different, Iíll update.

It's good to hear that this system is capable of performing its intended task. Hopefully, Audi will continue to refine the system and substantially reduce the number of false warnings.
