Lane Assist on Golf 7 : First in Singapore/Malaysia

6 Aug 2016 : Retrofitting Lane Assist on Golf 7

The benefit of the lane assist in my opinion, is very necessary. It assist in keeping the car in lane when travelling above 70 kph by gently correcting the vehicle direction by electrically turning the steering wheel to aid the driver. 

Fitting the original VW Lane en travelling above Assist on the Golf 7 involves major modification which includes the windscreen, rear view mirror and even the Gateway of the vehicle. 

A special part number for the Lane Assist option windscreen was ordered and installed on the Golf 7

Traffic Sign Assist

As part of the Lane Assist function, the front camera double up as a Traffic Sign Recognition camera. It reads specific road signs and display on the instrument cluster to warn the driver. 

The speed limit of the road is captured by the camera and displayed on the cluster under the Road Sign section

During driving, the speed limit of the road is displayed
