Toyota Camry Owner's Manual (2023): BSM function - BSM (Blind Spot Monitor)

The BSM function uses radar sensors to detect the following vehicles traveling in an adjacent lane in the area that is usually not reflected in the outside rear view mirror (the blind spot), and advises the driver of the presence of such vehicles via the indicators on the outside rear view mirrors.

Using the driving support systems

  1. Vehicles that are traveling in areas that are not visible using the outside rear view mirrors (the blind spots)
  2. Vehicles that are approaching rapidly from behind in areas that are not visible using the outside rear view mirrors (the blind spots)

BSM function detection areas

The areas that vehicles can be detected in are outlined below.

Using the driving support systems

The range of the detection area extends to:

  1. Approximately 1.6 ft. (0.5 m) to 11.5 ft. (3.5 m) from either side of the vehicle
    The area between the side of the vehicle and 1.6 ft. (0.5 m) from the side of the vehicle cannot be detected
  2. Approximately 3.3 ft. (1 m) forward of the rear bumper
  3. Approximately 9.8 ft. (3 m) from the rear bumper
  4. Approximately 9.8 ft. (3 m) to 197 ft. (60 m) from the rear bumper
    The greater the difference in speed between your vehicle and the detected vehicle is, the farther away the vehicle will be detected, causing the outside rear view mirror indicator to illuminate or flash

WARNING

■Cautions regarding the use of the system

The driver is solely responsible for safe driving. Always drive safely, taking care to observe your surroundings.

The BSM function is a supplementary function which alerts the driver that a vehicle is present in the blind spot. Do not overly rely on the BSM function.

The function cannot judge if it is safe to change lanes, therefore over reliance could cause an accident resulting in death or serious injury.

According to conditions, the system may not function correctly. Therefore the driver's own visual confirmation of safety is necessary.
