Assists the driver when driving at night by displaying a thermal image of the surroundings. People and large wild animals are highlighted in yellow in the Audi Virtual Cockpit. If the system determines, from their position, that there is a potential risk, the marking changes to red, a warning triangle appears, and a warning tone is emitted. Warnings can also be shown in the Head-up display, if ordered. In conjunction with Audi Matrix LED headlights or Audi Matrix LED headlights with laser light, the highlighted figure is also illuminated with three successive brief flashes of the headlights. The system comes on automatically in darkness, if low beam is enabled or the lights are in auto mode.
