When in forward motion, the monocular camera and the laser sensor determine if there is a risk of collision with a vehicle or pedestrian. Upon detecting a potential collision, DSBS delivers a warning or implements automatic braking, depending on the situation.
When driving at 60 km/h or faster, the monocular camera detects the left and right white lane markers and alerts the driver with a warning sound and an indicator light when it determines that the vehicle has strayed out of its lane.
When driving at 65 km/h or faster, the monocular camera is used to recognise the driving lane. After deducing that lane departure is likely to occur, the system automatically assists the driver in returning the vehicle to its lane by controlling the steering via the electric power steering system.
At 60 km/h or faster, the weaving alert function calculates the driving pattern and issues audio and visual warnings if the vehicle is straying due to driver drowsiness, or other reasons.
This system utilises the monocular camera to detect traffic signs, including speed limits, no passing zones, end of traffic regulation and auxiliary signs, and shows them on the multi-information display to remind the driver. Up to three traffic signs can be displayed at once.
Adaptive cruise control on the strong hybrid model features a stop & go function. It accelerates and brakes for the driver to maintain a safe distance from the vehicle in front. Stop & go can even bring the car to a full stop when needed and then start following the car in front if it starts moving again within 2 seconds, such as in a traffic jam.
Adaptive cruise control without stop & go is available on the SHVS mild hybrid model.
When the indicator is turned on and there is a vehicle detected in a blind spot, the indicator will flash rapidly along with a warning sound to make lane changing safer. Blind spot monitor detects vehicles in or approaching the rear blind spots on either side of the vehicle.
When backing out of a parking space, for example, this function helps you avoid collisions. If the sensors detect a vehicle approaching the rear blind spots, a warning sound, a flashing side-mirror indicator and a notification in the multi-information display alert you to the situation.
