A quick look at the inside and outside mirrors, perhaps even a fleeting glance over the left shoulder – and then a major fright when there is loud hooting from your left as you pull out to overtake. Failing to see the car approaching rapidly from behind in the left-hand lane or in the blind spot next to your own car easily happens, especially in heavy traffic on multi-lane freeways or highways and in urban traffic as well.
The Blind Spot Detection (BSD) system can monitor this area and take much of the strain off the driver and avoid hazardous situations. Sensors monitor the road area behind and next to your own vehicle and warn if you try to pull out despite there being no gap.
Blind Spot Detection – Technical Details
SRR monitors the blind spot as well as the area behind the vehicle and can therefore help to prevent accidents when changing lanes or when reversing out of a parking space.
