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

Automatic Emergency Steering

Blind-Spot Detection (BSD)

Rear Cross-Traffic Alert (RCTA)

Reverse Automatic Braking (RAB)

High Beam Assist (HBA)

Lane Departure Prevention

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 101 in this Getting Started Guide for more details.

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 (PCB)

Pre-Collision Brake Assist

Automatic Emergency Steering

Pre-Collision Throttle Management

Lane Departure Warning (LDW)

Lane Sway Warning

Lane Departure Prevention

Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control with Lane Centering

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.

The Pre-Collision Braking function may also assist with avoiding or reducing the severity of collisions with crossing pedestrians and cyclists and with oncoming vehicles and pedestrians when turning.

This system can be turned on or off in the Center Information Display (CID) (see page 95).

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 95).

Obstacle Detected

EYESIGHT (if equipped)

86

Automatic Emergency Steering (if equipped)

The Automatic Emergency Steering function activates when the Pre-Collision Braking System has activated and there is an extremely high possibility of a collision with an obstacle ahead. When traveling at 50 mph or slower, the function uses the EyeSight

cameras and rear radar to determine if there is enough space to safely avoid a collision with the object ahead, detecting lane markings and making sure that there are no other objects in front as well as behind, such as oncoming vehicles or pedestrians.

Once activated, Automatic Emergency Steering provides automatic steering support to avoid the collision while staying within the lane. After a collision is avoided, the system continues steering assist and brake control to maintain the vehicle in its lane until the vehicle stops.

This function can be turned on or off by activating or deactivating the Pre-Collision Braking system (see page 95) or BSD/RCTA (see page 98).

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. Warnings are displayed in the Combination Meter Display (CMD) with audible beeps.

Pre-Collision Throttle Management is helpful when:

You unintentionally place the select lever in the D position instead of the R position and start to accelerate toward a parked car, wall or parking structure.

While you are at a stop, the vehicle ahead of you accelerates, but then suddenly slows down or stops as you begin to accelerate.

This system can be turned on or off in the Center Information Display (CID) (see page 95).

Lane Departure Warning

This function provides audible and visual warnings if you are about to depart your lane of travel. Using the EyeSight camera, the Lane Departure Warning function identifies lane markings when traveling at speeds of approximately 30 mph or greater. These warnings are displayed in the Combination Meter Display (CMD) with audible beeps. Lane Departure Warning does not provide any corrective actions.

You can turn this system on or off in the Center Information Display (CID) (see page 94).

Lane Departure

EYESIGHT (if equipped)

87

Lane Sway Warning

This function detects repetitive or unusual side-to-side vehicle movement within a lane of travel that may indicate a drowsy or inattentive driver. Using the EyeSight camera, the Lane Sway Warning function activates to identify lane markings when traveling at speeds of approximately 37 mph or greater and deactivates when vehicle speed falls below 25 mph. Warnings are displayed in the Combination Meter Display (CMD) with audible beeps. Lane Sway Warning does not provide any corrective actions.

You can turn this system on or off in the Center Information Display (CID) (see page 94).

Lane Departure Prevention

This function provides steering assistance to keep your Subaru in its lane of travel when cruising on expressways, freeways, and interstate highways. Using the EyeSight

camera, the Lane Departure Prevention Function identifies lane markings when traveling at speeds of approximately 37 mph or greater.

Operate the Center Information Display (CID) to turn on the Lane Departure Prevention Function by selecting All Functions or Lane Departure Prevention Function Only on the Lane Departure Prevention Function screen of the EyeSight settings.

As you drive the vehicle above the minimum speed, white lane marking graphics on the CMD indicate that right and/or left lane markings have been successfully identified by the EyeSight camera.

If your Subaru is about to depart the driving lane, the system assists steering by gently guiding the vehicle back into your lane. When the system is actively providing assistance, the lane indicator on the side where the Lane Departure Prevention Function activated changes from white to yellow.

Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control with Lane Centering

Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control is a driving support system intended to reduce the burden on you when driving on an expressway (including during congestion and when driving at high speed). Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Centering work together to assist you by automatically controlling the accelerator, brake, and steering.

Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control

This system provides cruise control with the ability to keep a safe distance from the car in front of you. Using the EyeSight camera, the Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control function identifies vehicles in front of you in the same lane, and your vehicle follows the vehicle in front (up to the maximum of your set speed). While following, your vehicle will automatically maintain a following distance that corresponds to the speed of the vehicle in front.

You can turn the Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control on or off using the Adaptive Cruise Control On/Off button on the right side of the steering wheel (see page 92). Once the system is turned on, a white Adaptive Cruise Control icon will be displayed on the Combination Meter Display (CMD). When all the operational conditions are met, READY appears underneath the Adaptive Cruise Control icon.

To set Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control, push down the SET/ switch on the right side of the steering wheel. The CMD will indicate a target speed and the icon will turn green. This speed can be adjusted up or down using the RES +/SET - switch (see page 92).

When a vehicle in front of you is identified, a Lead Vehicle indicator will be displayed on the Combination Meter Display (CMD). You can change the desired following distance from the lead vehicle by pressing the Increase Distance or Decrease Distance buttons (see page 92).

Your speed is approximately 20 mph or greater (22 mph models without EyeSight).

HBA automatically switches to low beams when the following conditions are met:

A preceding/oncoming vehicle is detected

The forward area is bright

Your speed decreases to 10 mph or less (17 mph models without EyeSight)

The EyeSight system is malfunctioning or is temporarily stopped.

STEERING RESPONSIVE HEADLIGHTS (SRH) (if equipped) The Steering Responsive Headlights (SRH) system aims the headlight beams in the direction you are steering, improving visibility at corners and intersections when driving at night. You can turn the SRH system on or off in the Center Information Display through the Car Settings icon.

REVERSE AUTOMATIC BRAKING (RAB) (if equipped)

This system uses four rear bumper mounted sonar sensors to detect objects when moving between 1 and 9 mph in reverse. RAB uses the Rear-Vision Camera image to display colored proximity alerts when an object is detected. As an object becomes closer to the rear of your vehicle, audible beeps provide additional awareness in progressive levels. If RAB determines that a collision with an object is possible, the system can automatically apply the brakes to help prevent or minimize the impact.

Reverse Automatic Braking (RAB) OFF

In some cases, it may be helpful to temporarily turn the system off. RAB can be turned off using the buttons in the lower corners of the Touchscreen when the select lever is in the R position. Select and hold the RAB ON button in the lower part of the Touchscreen until it changes to RAB OFF to disable the automatic braking functions of the RAB system.

Select and hold the P))) ON button in the lower part of the Touchscreen until it changes to P))) OFF to disable the audible beeping of the RAB system.

STEREO CAMERA PRECAUTIONS Your EyeSight stereo cameras are precision components that must be kept free from obstruction and contamination, such as fingerprints or cleaning solutions. When the system detects that the stereo camera lenses are impaired, a malfunction indicator will be displayed and EyeSight functions will not be available.

When you are in the vicinity of the EyeSight stereo cameras, always observe the following precautions:

Do not touch or attempt to clean the EyeSight camera lenses inside the vehicle. Extra caution should be used when cleaning the inside of the windshield. Over-spray from cleaning solutions may impair or even damage the camera lenses. When cleaning the inside of the windshield around the camera cover, do not spray cleaner directly onto the windshield. Instead, spray cleaner onto a cloth and then wipe the windshield. Please inform others who may attempt to clean the windshield, such as car wash staff, of these precautions.

If the inside of the windshield in front of the stereo camera is dirty, do not try to clean the windshield yourself. Contact your Subaru retailer to have the vehicle inspected.

If the camera system becomes hot, the cooling fans may operate. Do not block or insert anything into the ventilation holes. Do not touch the camera cover, because it may be hot due to head generated by the camera system.

Electronic Toll Collection devices, such as EZPassTM, must be installed in an area that does not obstruct the stereo cameras' field of vision. See "Prohibited Area" on page 102.

Adjust the rearview mirror so it does not obstruct the stereo cameras' field of vision.

Do not install any interior rearview mirror accessories, such as a wide-type mirror or hanging objects. Only approved Genuine SUBARU accessories may be installed.

For more detailed information, please refer to your EyeSight Owners Manual.

WINDSHIELD GLASS AND DASHBOARD Since the characteristics and limitations of the EyeSight stereo cameras are similar to human eyes, it is important that the area in front of the cameras be kept free from dirt, scratches, cracks, fogging, or accessories mounted to the windshield, hood or dashboard. Visual impairments or reflections can affect EyeSight system performance. Extra caution should be taken when cleaning the windshield to prevent over-spray from cleaning solutions.

The image in the following section outlines those areas that must be kept clean and free from obstruction. Please refer to the Owners Manual for a complete listing of limitations.
