Blind Spot InterventionTM system operation

Blind Spot InterventionTM system operation  - Blind Spot Warning (BSW) system/Blind Spot InterventionTM system (if so 
equipped) - Starting and driving - Infiniti QX Owners Manual - Infiniti QX

If the radar sensors detect vehicles in the

If the radar sensors detect vehicles in the detection zone, the BSW/Blind Spot InterventionTM indicator light located inside the outside mirrors illuminates. If your vehicle is approaching a lane marker, the BSW/ Blind Spot InterventionTM indicator light flashes and an audible warning will sound three times. Then the system applies the brakes on one side of the vehicle for a short period of time to help return the vehicle back to the center of the lane. Blind Spot InterventionTM operates regardless of turn signal usage.

NOTE:

Warning and brake control will only be activated if the BSW/Blind Spot InterventionTM indicator light is already illuminated when your vehicle approaches a lane marker. If another vehicle comes into the detection zone after your vehicle has crossed a lane marker, no warning or brake control will be activated. (See BSW/Blind Spot InterventionTM driving situations later in this section.).
► The Blind Spot InterventionTM system is typically activated earlier than the Lane Departure Prevention (LDP) system when your vehicle is approaching a lane marker.

The Blind Spot InterventionTM system turns on when the dynamic driver assistance switch on the steering wheel is pushed when the Blind Spot Intervention is enabled in the settings menu on the center display. The Blind Spot InterventionTM ON indicator light (green) on the instrument panel illuminates when the Blind Spot InterventionTM system is turned on. The Blind Spot InterventionTM system provides an audible warning and flashes the indicator light when Blind Spot InterventionTM is activated even if the BSW system is off.

How to enable/disable the Blind Spot InterventionTM system using the setting menu

Perform the following steps to enable or

Perform the following steps to enable or disable the Blind Spot InterventionTM system. 1. Push the SETTING 1 button and highlight the Driver Assistance key on the display using the INFINITI controller. Then push the ENTER 2 button. 2. Highlight the Dynamic Assistance Settings key, and push the ENTER 2 button.

3. Highlight the Blind Spot Intervention

3. Highlight the Blind Spot Intervention key, select ON (enabled) or OFF (disabled) and push the ENTER 2 button. For the LDP and DCA systems, see Lane Departure Prevention (LDP) system earlier in this section and Distance Control Assist (DCA) system later in this section.

► Do not use the Blind Spot InterventionTM WARNING

► Do not use the Blind Spot InterventionTM system under the following conditions because the system may not function properly. During bad weather (for example rain, fog, snow, wind, etc.). When driving on slippery roads, such as on ice or snow, etc. When driving on winding or uneven roads. When there is a lane closure due to road repairs. When driving in a makeshift lane. When driving on roads where the lane width is too narrow. When driving with a tire that is not within normal tire conditions (for example tire wear, low tire pressure, installation of spare tire, tire chains, non-standard wheels). When the vehicle is equipped with non-original brake parts or suspension parts.
► Do not use the BSW or Blind Spot InterventionTM systems when towing a trailer.
► Excessive noise (for example audio system volume, open vehicle window) will interfere with the chime sound, and it may not be heard.

► The radar sensors may not be able to detect and activate Blind Spot InterventionTM/ BSW when certain objects are present such as: Pedestrians, bicycles, animals
Several types of vehicles such as motorcycles
Oncoming vehicles
Vehicles remaining in the detection zone when you accelerate from a stop
(See BSW/Blind Spot InterventionTM driving situations later in this section)
A vehicle merging into an adjacent lane at a speed approximately the same as your vehicle
(See BSW/Blind Spot InterventionTM driving situations later in this section)
A vehicle approaching rapidly from behind.
(See BSW/Blind Spot InterventionTM driving situations later in this section)
A vehicle which your vehicle overtakes rapidly. (See BSW/Blind Spot InterventionTM driving situations later in this section)

. Severe weather or road spray conditions may reduce the ability of the radar to detect other vehicles.
► The radar sensors detection zone is designed based on a standard lane width. When driving in a wider lane, the radar sensors may not detect vehicles in an adjacent lane. When driving in a narrow lane, the radar sensors may detect vehicles driving two lanes away.
► The radar sensors are designed to ignore most stationary objects, however objects such as guardrails, walls, foliage and parked vehicles may occasionally be detected. This is a normal operating condition.
► The camera may not detect lane markers in the following situations and the Blind Spot InterventionTM system may not operate properly. On roads where there are multiple parallel lane markers; lane markers that are faded or not painted clearly; yellow painted lane markers; nonstandard lane markers; lane markers covered with water, dirt, snow, etc. On roads where discontinued lane markers are still detectable. On roads where there are sharp curves. On roads where there are sharply contrasting objects, such as shadows, snow, water, wheel ruts, seams or lines remaining after road repairs. On roads where the traveling lane merges or separates. When the vehicles traveling direction does not align with the lane markers. When traveling close to the vehicle in front of you, which obstructs the lane camera unit detection range. When rain, snow or dirt adheres to the windshield in front of a lane camera unit. When the headlights are not bright due to dirt on the lens or if aiming is not adjusted properly. When strong light enters a lane camera unit. (for example light directly shines on the front of the vehicle at sunrise or sunset.). When a sudden change in brightness occurs. (for example when the vehicle enters or exits a tunnel or under a bridge.)
