Driving

Examples of limitations on the correct detection of the camera due to the 
condition of the vehicle ahead of you, oncoming vehicles, pedestrians, or 
moving bicycles

The distance between your vehicle and the vehicle ahead of you, oncoming 
vehicle, pedestrian, or moving bicycle ahead of you is too short.

The vehicle ahead of you, oncoming vehicle, pedestrian, or moving bicycle 
suddenly cuts in front of or jumps out in front of you.

The bicycle is stopped.

The oncoming vehicle or vehicle ahead of you is sideways.

When the vehicle ahead of you, oncoming vehicle, pedestrian, or moving bicycle 
blends in with the background, preventing the system from recognizing them.

When several pedestrians or bicycles are moving ahead of you in a group.

When a pedestrian or moving bicycle crosses the road too quickly.

A pedestrian or moving bicycle approaches from the opposite direction.

The headlights of the vehicle ahead of you or oncoming vehicle are lit on one side 
or not lit on either side in a dark place.

When part of a pedestrian (heads, limbs, etc.) is hidden by load.

When a pedestrian is bent over or squatting, when their hands are raised, or they 
are running.

When the pedestrian is shorter than about 3.3 feet (1 meter) or taller than about 
6.6 feet (2 meters) in height.

When the pedestrian is pushing a stroller or bicycle.

Make sure that all the tires are of the same specified 
size, type and brand, and that they are evenly worn.
If you use tires of different sizes, types, brands, or 
degree of wear, the system may not work properly.

Do not modify the suspension. Altering the height of 
the vehicle may prevent the system from working 
properly.

Examples of other limitations on detection or system operation

When the vehicle ahead of you is a motorcycle, wheelchair, or other specially-
shaped vehicle.

When a vehicle is lower in the rear than the front such as trucks that are not 
carrying a load, or a narrow vehicle.

When the vehicle ahead of you, oncoming vehicle, pedestrian or moving bicycle 
is not in front of the vehicle.

The speed difference between your vehicle and the vehicle ahead of you, 
oncoming vehicle, pedestrian or moving bicycle is significantly large.

When the vehicle or moving bicycle in front of you slows suddenly.

When the driver operates the brake pedal and steering wheel to avoid a collision.

When you approach the vehicle ahead of you, oncoming vehicle, pedestrians or 
moving bicycles while accelerating rapidly or operating the steering wheel (except 
when turning left at an intersection etc.)

*1

When the moving bicycle is a child-sized bicycle, folding bicycle, three-wheeler or 
other bicycle with small tires, or a long bicycle like a tandem bicycle.

When the camera cannot correctly identify the shape of the vehicle ahead of you, 
oncoming vehicle, pedestrian, or moving bicycle.

When the minimum ground clearance of a vehicle ahead of you is extremely high.

*1 : When there is a possibility of a frontal collision with the oncoming vehicle while turning left, the CMBS

(amber) comes and stays on when:

You drive off-road or on a mountain road, or curved and winding road for an 
extended period.

Driving in bad weather (rain, fog, snow, etc.).

Driving with the parking brake applied.

The camera temperature gets too high.

The front of the camera is covered by dirt, fog, rain, mud, wet snow, seals, 
accessories, stickers, or film on the windshield.

An abnormal tire condition is detected (incorrect tire size, flat tire, etc.).

Once the conditions that caused the CMBS

TM

 to shut off improve or are addressed 

(e.g., cleaning), the system comes back on.

Driving

Low Speed Braking Control

*

Using sonar sensors located on the front and rear bumpers, this system detects if 
there is danger of a potential collision with a wall or other obstacle during normal 
driving or when the accelerator pedal is depressed with too much force. The system 
then assists in avoiding collisions and reducing damage from impact through 
assistive braking and/or assistive driving power suppression.

Low Speed Braking Control

*

If the Low Speed Braking Control activates in a 
situation where you do not want automatic brake 
application (such as when the vehicle is between two 
railroad crossing gates), simply press the brake pedal 
to deactivate the system and then continue to drive 
as intended.

3

WARNING

The Low Speed Braking Control System 
cannot avoid all collisions and may not 
reduce damage in each situation where the 
accelerator is mistakenly or aggressively 
pressed. Overreliance on the system may 
result in a collision with serious injury or 
death. Always check your surroundings, 
your shift position, and your pedal use.
Driver remains responsible for safely 
operating the vehicle.

Assistive braking

Assistive braking provides a visual and audible alert when the vehicle is moving 
between approximately 1 and 6 mph (2 and 10 km/h) and there is the possibility of 
a collision with a detected wall or other obstacles, as well as providing assistance 
with braking.

If the only rear sensors are turned off using the parking sensor system, the assistive 
braking is not working when reversing.

Assistive driving power suppression

When the vehicle is stopped or moving at less than 6 mph (10 km/h) and there is an 
obstacle such as a wall detected near the front of or back of the vehicle, if the 
accelerator pedal is depressed more than necessary, the system will inform you with 
a visual and audible alert. At the same time, the system will prevent sudden forward 
or backwards movement by limiting the output of the engine, then assistive braking 
will activate nearby the obstacle.

Assistive driving power suppression will not activate in the following situations.
When moving forward:
When on a steep slope or the shift position is in

When the accelerator is depressed for approximately four seconds.

When the brake pedal is depressed.

When the steering wheel is turned and a collision avoided.

Conditions for assistive braking cancellation.

A certain amount of time has passed since activation.

The system may not operate correctly in the following conditions:

Examples of obstacles the sonar sensor cannot detect

Obstacles that do not reflect sound waves well, such as people, snow, cloth, 
sponges, etc.

Thin obstacles such as fences, bicycles, sign posts, etc.

Short or small obstacles.

Obstacles immediately in front of the bumper.

Moving objects or obstacles that suddenly enter the road.

Obstacles that are not perpendicular to the ground.

Conditions for Cancellation

Low Speed Braking Control System Conditions and Limitations

Conditions for Cancellation

After Low Speed Braking Control has activated once, 
it will not activate again for the same obstacle.
They can be activated again after driving for a certain 
distance after last activation.

Low Speed Braking Control activates separately when 
moving forward and reversing. (For example, if it 
activates when moving forward, it can be activated 
again immediately if reversing.)
However, if assistive braking has been activated, in 
order to activate assistive driving power suppression 
again, it is necessary to drive for a certain distance to 
reset the system.

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low Speed Follow

Driving

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low Speed Follow

Helps maintain a constant vehicle speed and a set following-interval behind a vehicle 
detected ahead of yours and, if the detected vehicle comes to a stop, can decelerate 
and stop your vehicle, without you having to keep your foot on the brake or the 
accelerator.
When ACC with Low Speed Follow slows your vehicle by applying the brakes, your 
vehicle’s brake lights will illuminate.

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low Speed Follow

Important Reminder

As with any system, there are limits to ACC with Low 
Speed Follow. Use the brake pedal whenever 
necessary, and always keep a safe interval between 
your vehicle and other vehicles.

3

WARNING

Improper use of ACC with Low Speed 
Follow can lead to a crash.

Use ACC with Low Speed Follow only 
when driving on expressways or freeways 
and in good road and weather conditions.

3

WARNING

ACC with Low Speed Follow has limited 
braking capability and may not stop your 
vehicle in time to avoid a collision with a 
vehicle that quickly stops in front of you.

Always be prepared to apply the brake 
pedal if the conditions require.
