The system cannot identify all pedestrians
The system cannot identify all pedestrians

The Collision Warning system can only identify and detect a pedestrian who is standing upright. This person can be standing still, walking or running.

This means that the system has to be able to identify a person's head, arms, shoulders, legs, the upper and lower parts of the body and a person's pattern of movement when walking or running.

If parts of the body are not visible to the camera, the system cannot detect the pedestrian.

The following conditions apply:

Х In order to detect a pedestrian, the system must have a full view of the person's entire body and the person must be at least 32 in. (80 cm) tall.

Х The system cannot detect a pedestrian carrying a large object.

Х The camera's capacity to see a pedestrian at dawn or dusk is limited, much as it is for the human eye.

Х The camera's function is deactivated and will not detect a pedestrian in darkness or in tunnels, even if there is street lighting in the area.

WARNING
Х Collision Warning with Full Auto-brake and Pedestrian Detection is designed to be a supplementary driving aid. It is not, however, intended to replace the driver's attention and judgement. The driver is always responsible for operating the vehicle in a safe manner.
Х The system cannot detect all pedestrians in all situations, such as in darkness/at night and cannot detect partially hidden pedestrians, people who are less than approx. 32 in. (80 cm) tall, or people wearing clothing that obscures the contours of their bodies.
