FORWARD TRAFFIC MONITOR

WARNING

Make sure the relevant safety warnings have been read and understood before driving the vehicle. See COLLISION AVOIDANCE SAFETY.

WARNING

The driver is responsible for detecting obstacles, and estimating the vehicle's distance from them, when maneuvering the vehicle. Failure to drive with due care and attention could cause an accident, leading to serious injury or death.

NOTES

The quality of the camera views may vary in different lighting conditions.

  1. Vehicle warning icon.

  2. Parking aid plan view.

  3. Camera icon.

  4. Feature disabled icon.

The forward traffic monitor feature assists the driver when exiting from an intersection or parking space. The feature increases the visibility available to the driver when carrying out a low speed, forward maneuver.

The feature operates when the vehicle is traveling at speeds of up to 4 mph (6 km/h), down to a standstill. Visual and audible alerts are no longer generated once the vehicle reaches a speed of 4 mph (6 km/h). The touchscreen continues to display camera views at speeds above 4 mph (6 km/h).

NOTES

The feature is not autonomous.

Access to the feature is via the CAMERA or PARKING AID screens.

Switch the feature on by touching the camera icon (3) shortly before attempting a low speed, forward maneuver.

The touchscreen displays a warning icon (1) on the relevant side(s) of the screen if an imminent risk of a side impact is detected. An audible warning also sounds.

The feature detects vehicles from either side, traveling at speeds of up to 40 mph (64 km/h), with a time to collision of 3 seconds.

The touchscreen displays the feature disabled icon (4) if the feature is not available, or a fault is detected. The instrument panel also displays a message if a camera or sensor is blocked.

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