REVERSE TRAFFIC DETECTION (RTD)

WARNING

The Reverse Traffic Detection (RTD) system is a supplement to, and not a replacement for, safe driving, good observation, and use of the door mirrors and rear-view mirror. Driver distraction can lead to accidents, potentially causing serious injury or death.

WARNING

The driver is responsible for detecting obstacles and estimating the vehicle's distance from the objects when maneuvering the vehicle. Driver distraction can lead to accidents, potentially causing serious injury or death.

WARNING

The camera must be kept clean and free from debris or obstructions, e.g., ice, frost, snow, leaves, mud, or insects. Failure to keep the camera clear may result in miscalculations or false indications, and can lead to accidents, potentially causing serious injury or death.

NOTES

RTD automatically disables when park assist is active and when a trailer is connected.

NOTES

RTD messages are displayed either on the touchscreen or in the instrument panel.

RTD adds extra functionality to the rear camera. The RTD system warns the driver of any moving vehicle, on either side, that may pose an accident risk during a reversing maneuver.

  1. Vehicle warning icon: The CAMERA screen, or the PARKING AID screen, depending on the current selection, displays a vehicle warning icon on the relevant side(s) of the screen. The vehicle warning icon indicates the presence of a moving vehicle.

  2. Parking aid plan view.

  3. Camera icon: Touch to select the camera feature.

  4. System disabled warning icon: The system disabled warning icon is displayed when the system is not active.

RTD is enabled or disabled via the Driver assistance menu, in the instrument panel. See INSTRUMENT PANEL MENU.

To move from the CAMERA screen to the PARKING AID screen, touch the parking aid plan view (2) on the touchscreen.

To move from the PARKING AID screen to the CAMERA screen, touch the camera icon (3).

The RTD system automatically disables if any of the sensors become partially or completely obscured. The message Reverse traffic sensor blocked is displayed on the touchscreen or in the instrument panel.

Check that there is nothing obscuring the rear bumper's surface. Check that the bumper is clear from ice, frost, snow, mud, and dirt.

If a fault is detected, or the system is not available, the system disabled warning icon (4) is displayed on the touchscreen. The message Reverse traffic detection system not available is also displayed on the touchscreen or in the instrument panel.

NOTES

If the detected fault affects a radar sensor on only one side of the vehicle, the whole system is disabled. If the fault is temporary, the system operates correctly once the engine is switched off and then on again.

If a fault occurs that is not rectified when the engine is switched off and on again, consult a retailer/authorized repairer.
