Moving Object Detection (MOD)

Moving Object Detection (MOD)  - Around View Monitor (if so equipped) - Monitor, climate, audio, phone and voice recognition systems - Infiniti JX Owners Manual - Infiniti JX

The Moving Object Detection (MOD) system can inform the driver of the moving objects surrounding the vehicle when driving out of garages, maneuvering into parking lots and in other such instances.

The MOD system detects moving objects by using image processing technology on the image shown in the display.

The MOD system operates in the following conditions when the camera view is displayed:

● When the shift selector is in the P or N position and the vehicle is stopped, the MOD system detects the moving objects in the bird-eye view. The MOD system will not operate if the outside mirror is moving in or out or if either door is opened.
● When the shift selector is in the D position and the vehicle speed is below approximately 5 mph (8 km/h), the MOD system detects moving objects in the front view or front-wide view.
● When the shift selector is in the R position and the vehicle speed is below approximately 5 mph (8 km/h), the MOD system detects moving objects in the rearview or rear-wide view. The MOD system will not operate if the liftgate is open.

The MOD system does not detect moving objects in the front-side view. The MOD icon is not displayed on the screen when in this view.

WARNING
● The MOD system is not a substitute for proper vehicle operation and is not designed to prevent contact with the objects surrounding the vehicle. When maneuvering, always use the outside mirror and rear view mirror and turn and check the surrounding to ensure it is safe to maneuver.
● The MOD system does not have the function to detect the surrounding stationary objects.

If the MOD system detects the moving objects surrounding the vehicle, the yellow frame will be displayed on the camera image and a chime sounds.

If the MOD system detects the moving objects surrounding the vehicle, the yellow frame will be displayed on the camera image and a chime sounds.

When the MOD system detects a moving object surrounding the vehicle, the yellow frame will be displayed on the view where the objects are detected and a chime will sound once. While the MOD system continues to detect moving objects, the yellow frame continues to be displayed.

In the bird-eye view, the yellow frame 1 is displayed on each camera image (front, rear, right, left) depending on where moving objects are detected.

The yellow frame 2 is displayed on each view in the front view, front-wide view, rear view and rear-wide view modes.

While the sonar or the BCI chime (if so equipped) is beeping, the MOD system does not chime.

A blue MOD icon is displayed in the view where theMODsystem is operative. A grayMODicon is displayed in the view where the MOD system is not operative.

When the MOD key 4 is selected, the MOD system will turn off temporarily and the indicator 5 will turn off. At the same time the cameraaiding sonar will also be turned OFF. When the key is pressed again, the indicator will turn on and the MOD system will turn back on.

If theMODsystem is turned off, theMODicon 3 is not displayed.

The MOD system will turn on automatically under the following conditions:

● When the shift selector is in the R position.
● When the CAMERA button is pressed to switch from a different screen to the camera view on the display
● When vehicle speed decreases below approximately 5 mph (8 km/h).
● When the ignition switch is placed in the OFF position and then back to the ON position.

To set the MOD system so that it remains off at all times, use the camera settings menu. See Around View Monitor settings in this section for more information.

WARNING
● Do not use the MOD system when towing a trailer. The system may not function properly.
● Excessive noise (for example, audio system volume or open vehicle window) will interfere with the chime sound, and it may not be heard.
● The MOD system performance will be limited according to environmental conditions and surrounding objects such as:
When there is low contrast between background and the moving objects.

When there is blinking source of light.
When strong light such as another vehicles headlight or sunlight is present.
When camera orientation is not in its usual position, such as when mirror is folded.
When there is dirt, water drops or snow on the camera lens.
When the position of the moving objects in the display is not changed.
● The MOD system might detect something like flowing water droplets on the camera lens, white smoke from the muffler, moving shadows, etc.
● The MOD system may not function properly depending on the speed, direction, distance or shape of the moving objects.
● If your vehicle sustains damage to the parts where the camera is installed, leaving it misaligned or bent, the sensing zone may be altered and the MOD system may not detect objects properly.

Camera maintenance

If dirt, rain or snow accumulates on the camera, theMODsystem may not operate properly. Clean the camera.
