The cameras limitations

The cameras limitations  - Limitations - Collision warning with Full Auto-brake and Pedestrian Detection - Comfort and driving pleasure - Volvo XC60 Owners Manual - Volvo XC60

The camera is used by Collision Warning with Auto-brake, Driver Alert Control (see page 180), and Lane Departure Warning (see page 183).

NOTE
To help protect the camera in very hot conditions, it may be temporarily switched off for approximately 15 minutes after the engine has been started.
Keep the section of the windshield in front of the camera clean and free of ice, snow, or condensation.

WARNING
The camera has the same limitations as the human eye. In other words, its vision is impaired by adverse weather conditions such as heavy snowfall, dense fog, etc. These conditions may reduce the function of systems that depend on the camera or cause these systems to temporarily stop functioning.
Never place any objects, decals, etc., on the windshield in front of the camera.
This could reduce or block the cameras function, and could cause one or more of the systems that utilize the camera to stop functioning.
Strong sunlight, reflections from the road surface, ice or snow covering the road, a dirty road surface, or unclear lane marker lines may drastically reduce the cameras capacity to detect the side of a lane, a pedestrian or another vehicle.
