How Does Mercedes-Benz PRESAFE® Detect Collisions?

Your PRESAFE® Mercedes-Benz system features dozens of sensors that field for possible accidents. If detects that you’re at risk for a collision in Caledon traffic, it can take a number of steps to protect you, including:

  • Closing the windows and sunroof in order to keep debris from entering the cabin if it senses a possible rollover
  • Engaging and repositioning the front head restraints in order to optimize crash protection and mitigate possible whiplash
  • Increasing seatbelt tension
  • And so much more.

Now that you’ve read about the most fundamental ways that Mercedes-Benz PRESAFE® works to keep you safer on Orangeville streets, let’s take a look at more standout features it implements to protect you!

What is PRESAFE® Sound?

PRESAFE® Sound emits a “pink noise” when it senses that the sound of a collision has exceeded 80 decibels. This sound protects your inner ear from any damage created by the often loud noises associated with a car crash, by triggering your stapedius reflex. The pink noise causes your stapedius muscle to contract for a short time, weakening the connection between the eardrum and inner ear via causing, so you can protect your inner ear from any permanent damage.

What is PRESAFE® Impulse Side?

Because the sidewalls of your vehicle are so thin, they don’t offer as much built-in crumple zone protection as the front or rear of your vehicle. PRESAFE® Impulse Side attempts to account for this lack by moving passengers away from acute danger zones in the cabin when it detects a side impact.

Are There Other Mercedes-Benz Safety Features?

Mercedes-Benz models can come equipped with a number of other safety features that aren’t part of the Mercedes-Benz suite of PRESAFE® features. Take a look at some of the technologies you can outfit your next model with:

  • Adaptive High Beam Assist
  • Nightview Assist Plus
  • LED Intelligent Light System
  • Active Distant Assist Distronic®
  • Attention Assist®

What Does “PRESAFE® Functions Limited” Mean?

From time to time, you’ll need to have your Mercedes-Benz PRESAFE® sensors cleaned and adjusted. But how you can tell that your PRESAFE® Mercedes-Benz system is due for a service? The vehicle information panel behind your steering wheel will alert you by flashing the message “PRESAFE® Functions Limited.”
