Driving
situations
The
side
assist
warning
is
active
at
speeds
above
approximately
9
mph
(15
km/h)
and
can
help
in
situations
such
as
the
following:
@
Your
vehicle
is
being
passed.
The
faster
an-
other
vehicle
approaches
from
behind,
the
sooner
the
display
in
the
outside
mirror
will
turn
on.
There
are
vehicles
traveling
in
the
same
direc-
tion
as
you
in
a
lane
adjacent
to
yours.
The
display
in
the
exterior
mirror
will
turn
on
when
the
detected
object
is
in
the
“blind
spot”,
at
the
latest.
You
are
slowly
passing
another
vehicle.
If
the
difference
in
speed
between
the
two
vehicles
is
less
than
9
mph
(15
km/h),
the
display
in
the
exterior
mirror
will
turn
on.
Information
stage
If
you
do
not
activate
a
turn
signal,
the
system
will
inform
you
about
objects
classified
as
critical
by
turning
on
the
display
in
the
respective
exteri-
or
mirror.
The display
remains
dim
in
the
infor-
mation
stage
so
that
you
are
not
distracted
while
looking
forward.
Warning
stage
Once
you
activate
a
turn
signal,
the
system
will
inform
you
about
objects
classified
as
critical
by
turning
on
the
display
in
the
respective
exterior
mirror.
Depending
on
vehicle
equipment,
the
display
may
also
provide
a
warning
when
the
turn signal
is
not
activated:
if
driver assist
systems
detect
that
your
vehicle
is
about
to
leave
a
lane,
the
dis-
play
will
blink
to
warn
you
about
objects
classi-
fied
as
critical.
You
can
also
be

limitations
The
system
uses
the
data
from
the
radar
sensors
at
the
rear
corners
of
the
vehicle

They
are
designed
to
detect
the
left
and
right
adjacent
lanes
when
the
road lanes
are
the
normal
width.
In
some
situations,
the
system
may
react
to
vehicles
in
your
own
lane
or
lanes
that
are
not
directly
adjacent
to
yours,
or to
ob-
jects
on
the
side
of
the
road.
In
this
case,
the
dis-
play
will
turn
on
even
though
there
is
no
vehicle
in
the
critical
area.
These
situations
may
include:
Driving
on
the
edge
of
your
own
lane
Narrow
lanes
Curves
High
barriers
on
the
