With the help of stereo cameras, Magic Body Control detects uneven road surfaces in advance (road surface scan) and adjusts the dampers. It's based on that Active body control chassis from the previous series. The measurement accuracy of the stereo camera is between one and two millimeters and covers five to 15 meters of the area in front of the vehicle. In this way, body movements of the body are to be compensated. The system works during the day when visibility is good and the road surface is dry (not when it is wet) and up to a speed of 130 km / h.
