Blind Spot Monitoring

(BSM)

*

Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM)

The BSM is designed to assist the driver
in checking the area to the rear of the
vehicle on both sides during lane
changes by notifying the driver of the
presence of vehicles approaching from
the rear in an adjacent lane.

BSM operation

The BSM detects vehicles approaching
from the rear while traveling in the
forward direction at a speed of 10
km/h (6.3 mph) or faster and notifies
the driver by turning on the BSM
warning indicator light and displaying
the vehicle detection screen.
If the turn signal lever is operated to
signal a turn in the direction in which
the BSM warning indicator light is
illuminated while the approaching
vehicle is detected, the BSM notifies
the driver of possible danger flashing
on the BSM warning indicator light,
and by activating the warning sound
and the warning screen indicator
display.

The detection area on this system
covers the driving lanes on both sides
of the vehicle and from the rear part of
the front doors to about 50 m (164 ft)
behind the vehicle.

1. Your vehicle
2. Detection areas

WARNING

Always check the surrounding area
visually before making an actual lane
change:

The system is only designed to assist
you in checking for vehicles at your rear
when making a lane change. Due to
certain limitations with the operation
of this system, the BSM warning
indicator light, the warning sound and
the warning screen indicator display
may not activate or they might be
delayed even though a vehicle is in an
adjacent driving lane. Always make it
your responsibility as a driver to check
the rear.

Distance & Speed Alert

(DSA)

*

Distance & Speed Alert (DSA)

The DSA is a system which provides
advice for maintaining the appropriate
distance between vehicles and notifies
the driver of the recommended, safe
distance to maintain with a vehicle
ahead. The system measures the
distance between your vehicle and a
vehicle ahead while the vehicle speed
is about 30 km/h (19 mph) or faster. If
the distance between your vehicle and
a vehicle ahead is close, the system
alerts the driver of a possible collision
using an indication on the display.

WARNING

Do not rely completely on the DSA:

The ability of the system to detect a
vehicle ahead is limited depending on
the type of vehicle ahead, weather
conditions, or traffic conditions. In
addition, the system is not for
maintaining the distance between your
vehicle and a vehicle ahead. If you
neglect to operate the accelerator and
brake pedals correctly, it could lead to
an accident. Always check the safety of
the surrounding area and depress the
brake pedal or accelerator pedal while
keeping a safe distance from vehicles
ahead or on-coming vehicles.

Operation conditions

system are four-wheeled vehicles.

x

The DSA may also operate in the
presence of motorcycles and
bicycles.

x

The DSA may not operate normally
when the speed of a vehicle ahead is
too slow.
