Front lower grill sensor

What is the sensor in the front lower grill on the passenger side? It is clearly shown in page 87 of the manual, but I can't find where they say what it is.

I assumed it was for the forward collision warning part of the safety and security group. But I have that package, but not the sensor

Garage
My German Compass has an adaptive cruise control and I suppose that's used for the radar. But for whatever reason the ACC is not available on North American Compass models. So I'm not sure what else this sensor is for.

Probably It's the LaneSense system forward looking camera to detect
lane markings and measure vehicle position within the
lane boundaries. page 268.

I've been doing some digging on it, and I THINK you don't get emergency braking as part of the safety and security package with a manual transmission. My guess is that if it emergency braked and you weren't paying attention it could stall the vehicle. It would still be nice if we got the audible and visual alerts though! Can anyone else confirm?
