WARNING

Closing vehicle sensing is a supplement to, not a replacement for, a safe driving style and use of the door mirrors and rear-view mirror. Drive safely at all times, and use the door mirrors and rear-view mirror to avoid accidents.

WARNING

The radar sensors may be impaired by mud, rain, frost, ice, snow, road spray, etc. The system's ability to reliably detect a vehicle within the driver's blind spot may be affected. Drive safely at all times, and use the door mirrors and rear-view mirror to avoid accidents.

WARNING

Closing vehicle sensing does not correct errors of judgement in driving. The driver is responsible for driving with due care and attention during low speed manoeuvres. Drive safely at all times, and use the door mirrors and rear-view mirror to avoid accidents.

WARNING

Make sure that the warning icons and indicators in the door mirrors are not obscured by stickers or other objects. Failure to keep the door mirrors clear from obstructions may result in miscalculations or false indications, and can lead to accidents, potentially causing serious injury or death.

WARNING

Do not attach stickers or objects to the rear bumper that may interfere with the radar sensors. Failure to keep the radar sensors clear from obstructions may result in miscalculations or false indications, and can lead to accidents, potentially causing serious injury or death.

NOTES

When rapidly approaching vehicles are detected on both sides simultaneously, the amber vehicle warning icon indicates a target has been detected in both door mirrors.

NOTES

Closing vehicle sensing covers an area of a fixed lane width. When the lanes are narrower than a typical carriageway lane, objects travelling in non-adjacent lanes may be detected.

NOTES

Closing vehicle sensing disables when the vehicle is negotiating a tight radius bend.

NOTES

When the blind spot monitor system is disabled, closing vehicle sensing also disables.

NOTES

The radar sensor is approved in all RTTE countries.

  1. Monitored area behind and to the sides of the vehicle.

  2. Detected vehicle in the monitored area.

  3. Driver's blind spot area.

In addition to the functionality provided by the blind spot monitor system, closing vehicle sensing monitors a larger area behind the vehicle. Closing vehicle sensing is designed to perform best on multi-lane roads with free-flowing traffic. The system is operational above 10 km/h (6 mph) in a forward gear.

NOTES

The closing vehicle sensing system monitors up to a distance of 70 m behind the vehicle and approximately 2.5 m from each side. The distance is the width of a typical carriageway lane.

When the closing vehicle sensing system detects a vehicle that is approaching rapidly, the relevant door mirror flashes an amber vehicle warning icon (2). See WARNSYSTEM „TOTER WINKEL“.

NOTES

The relevant door mirror displays a flashing vehicle warning icon, if the direction indicator is selected.

When the detected vehicle reaches the area monitored by the blind spot monitor system (3), the amber vehicle warning icon illuminates continuously. Normal operation of the system continues.
