Subaru Forester: Starting and operating / BSD/RCTA (if equipped)

The BSD/RCTA consists of rear corner radars with Blind Spot Detection and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.

These functions enable the system to detect objects or vehicles to the rear, drawing attention to the driver when changing a lane or when driving in reverse.

WARNING

The driver is responsible for driving safely. Always be sure to check the surroundings when changing lanes or reversing the vehicle.

The system is designed to assist the driver to change lanes or reverse safely by monitoring the rear and side areas of the vehicle. However, you cannot rely on this system alone in assuring the safety during a lane change or reversing. Overconfidence in this system could result in an accident and lead to serious injury or death. Since the system operation has various limitations, the flashing or illumination of the BSD/RCTA approach indicator light may be delayed or it may not operate at all even when a vehicle is present in a neighboring lane or approaching from either side.

The driver is responsible for paying attention to the rear and side areas of the vehicle.

System features

BSD/RCTA consists of the following functions.

  • To detect a vehicle in a blind spot on an adjacent lane or a vehicle approaching at high speeds (Blind Spot Detection).
  • To detect a vehicle approaching from the right or left while reversing the vehicle (Rear Cross Traffic Alert).

The system uses radar sensors for the above functions.

NOTE

The BSD/RCTA radar sensor has been certified by the radio wave related laws of the U.S. , Canada and Mexico. When driving in other countries, certification of the country where the vehicle is driven must be obtained. For certification in the U.S. , Canada and Mexico, refer to “Certification for the BSD/ RCTA”.
