SETTINGS AND UPDATES 70 EYESIGHT® OVERVIEW Your Subaru features a variety of safety systems that are the culmination of everything Subaru Engineers know about safety. These systems are referred to as “Driver Assist Technologies” and add confidence to every trip you and your passengers take. Working together, these systems provide enhanced awareness, safety, and convenience in front, to the sides, and behind your Subaru. Subaru Driver Assist Technologies include: • EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology • Rear-Vision Camera • Pre-Collision Braking • Blind-Spot Detection (BSD) • Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA) • Reverse Automatic Braking (RAB) • High Beam Assist (HBA) • Steering Responsive Headlights (SRH) OPERATION EyeSight® is a driver assist technology that uses dual stereo cameras to serve as an extra pair of eyes on the road ahead to identify vehicles in front, pedestrians, traffic lanes, or other objects. If need be, the EyeSight® system can apply the brakes and/or reduce engine power to help avoid or reduce the severity of a collision. During these events, the system will provide audible and visual alerts to assist you in making decisions. Since the characteristics and limitations of the EyeSight® cameras are similar to human eyes, it is important that the cameras, windshield, and area in front of the cameras are treated with special care. Please refer to “Care and Limitations” on page 82 in this Getting Started Guide for more details. EyeSight® Cameras (inside) EyeSight® Cameras (outside) EYESIGHT (if equipped) 71 FUNCTIONS The EyeSight® system features several distinct functions designed to provide extra awareness, improve safety, reduce fatigue, and add peace of mind every time you drive your Subaru. EyeSight® functions include: • Pre-Collision Braking • Pre-Collision Brake Assist • Pre-Collision Throttle Management • Lane Departure Warning • Lane Sway Warning • Adaptive Cruise Control • Conventional Cruise Control • Lead Vehicle Start Alert Pre-Collision Braking This function helps prevent or minimize a frontal collision with another vehicle, pedestrian, or other objects by providing visual and audible warnings. Warnings are displayed in the Combination Meter Display (CMD) with audible beeps. If you take no corrective action, the system automatically reduces engine power and applies the brakes with increasing force to help prevent or minimize the collision. This system can be turned on or off in the Center Information Display (CID) (see page 77). Pre-Collision Brake Assist This function activates when the Pre-Collision Braking System is activated, the system determines that there is a high risk of collision with an obstacle in front, and you apply the brakes. The function assists by applying additional pressure to the braking system to decrease stopping distance. This system can be turned on or off in the Center Information Display (CID) (see page 77). Obstacle Detected EYESIGHT (if equipped) 72 Pre-Collision Throttle Management This function is designed to help prevent you from unintentionally accelerating into a stopped vehicle or other obstacle by reducing engine power.
