About EyeSight

EyeSight is a driving support system that uses a range of functions to assist the driver in making decisions in order to provide for more safe and comfortable driving and to reduce driver fatigue. EyeSight makes use of original stereo cameras designed by SUBARU. Two CCD (Charge Coupled Device) cameras are used to process stereo images and identify the vehicle in front, obstacles, traffic lanes and other items.

EyeSight

WARNING

Drivers are responsible for driving safely. Strive for safe driving at all times. Always maintain a safe following distance behind the vehicle in front of you, pay attention to your surroundings and the driving condi- tions, operate the brake pedal and take other action as necessary in order to maintain a safe following distance. Never attempt to drive relying on EyeSight alone. EyeSight is intended to assist the driver in making decisions in order to reduce the chance of accidents or damage and lessen the burden on the driver. When a warning is activated, pay attention to what is in front of you and to your surroundings, operate the brake pedal and take other action as necessary. This system is not designed to support driving in poor visibility or in extreme weather conditions, or to protect against careless driving when the driver is not paying complete attention to the road ahead. It also cannot prevent collisions from occurring in all driving conditions. There are limits to the EyeSight recognition performance and control per- formance. Be sure to read the instructions concerning Adaptive Cruise Control, the Pre-Collision Braking System, Pre-Collision Throttle Management and Conventional Cruise Control before using them and be sure to use them correctly. We are not liable for accidents or other prob- lems resulting from failure to follow the instructions in this manual. The EyeSight system in your vehicle is designed for use in countries in which traffic operates on the right-hand side of the road. EyeSight for LHD vehicles such as yours is not designed for use in countries in which vehicles are driven on the left-hand side of the road. The system may not operate correctly under the conditions listed below. When

these conditions occur, turn off the Pre-Collision Braking System. Also, do not use Adaptive Cruise Control and Conventional Cruise Control.

- The tire pressure is not correct.* - The temporary spare tire is installed on any wheel.* - Tires that are worn or have large variations in wear conditions are installed.* - Tires other than those of the designated size are installed.* - An emergency repair is performed using the flat tire repair kit. - The suspension has been modified. - Tire chains are installed. - The headlights are dirty or the optical axes are not aligned correctly. (Objects

are not correctly illuminated and are difficult to detect.) - Vehicle operation has become compromised due to an accident or malfunc-

tion. - The brake warning light is illuminated. - The vehicle is tilted due to a heavy cargo load. - The maximum number of occupants and/or the gross vehicle weight rating is

exceeded. *The wheels and tires have functions that are critically important. Be sure to use the correct ones. For details, refer to the Owners Manual for your vehicle.

The system may not operate correctly when towing a trailer or another vehicle. Do not use Adaptive Cruise Control in these situations.

CAUTION The characteristics of the stereo cameras are similar to those of human eyes. For this

reason, conditions that make it difficult for the driver to see in the forward direction have the same effect on the stereo cameras and make it difficult for the system to detect vehi- cles, obstacles and traffic lanes.

Detection by the EyeSight system is limited to objects that are within the range of the stereo cameras field of vision. Also, after an object enters the range of the cameras field of vision, it may take some time for the system to detect it as a controllable target and warn the driver.

Under the conditions listed below, it will become more difficult for the system to detect the vehicle in front, motorcycles, bicycles, pedestrians and obstacles on the road and lane markers, and EyeSight may temporarily stop operating. However, the system will resume operation once these conditions have improved and the vehicle is driven for a short period of time.

- Bad weather (for example heavy rain, a blizzard or thick fog). In particular, the system is more likely to temporarily stop operating when there is an oil film adhering to the windshield, a glass coating has been applied or old wipers are used.)

- When affected by strong light from the front (sunlight or headlight beams, etc.) - The windshield has become fogged, or snow, dirt, dust or frost has adhered to it,

reducing the stereo cameras field of view. - The vehicle is tilted at an extreme angle due to loaded cargo or other factors. - When the stereo cameras field of view is obstructed (for example by a canoe on the

roof of the vehicle) - When visibility is poor due to sand, smoke or water vapor in the air, or when the vehi-

cle in front or oncoming traffic causes water, snow, dirt or other substances to obscure the view

- When passing through the entrance or exit of a tunnel - When the rear aspect of the vehicle in front is low, small or irregular (for

example a low bed trailer, etc.) - When there is a fence, a wall or a shutter, etc. with a uniform pattern (a

striped pattern, brick, etc.) or with no pattern in front - When there is a wall or door made of glass or a mirror in front - When water droplets or dirt have not been fully wiped off the windshield - When driving at night or in a tunnel when there is a vehicle in front that

does not have its taillights on - When passing a banner or flag, low branches on a tree or thick/tall vege-

tation - On steep uphill or downhill grades - When the front of the cameras are obstructed by a hand, etc. - When it is completely dark and no objects are detected - When the area around the vehicle has a uniform color (such as when

completely covered in snow, etc.) - When the stereo camera lenses are dirty due to fingerprints, etc. - When accurate detection is not possible due to reflections in the front

windshield - When the stereo cameras have become misaligned due to a strong

impact Under the conditions listed below, EyeSight may temporarily stop

operating. If this occurs, EyeSight will resume operating when the conditions improve.

- The temperature inside the vehicle is high, such as after the vehicle was left in bright sunshine, or the temperature inside the vehicle is low, such as after the vehicle was left in an extremely cold environment.

- Immediately after the engine starts When there is a malfunction in the EyeSight system, turn off the Pre-Colli-

sion Braking System (refer to page 51) and the Lane Departure Warning (refer to page 60), and stop using the Adaptive Cruise Control and Con- ventional Cruise Control. Contact a SUBARU dealer and have the system inspected.

The stereo cameras are installed at the posi- tions of the front map lights.

Handling of the Stereo Cameras

CAUTION A function is included that will automatically detect that the fronts of the

stereo cameras are dirty. However it is not 100% effective. Under certain conditions, this function may fail to detect that the fronts of the stereo cameras have become dirty. In addition, this function may not detect that there is snow or ice on the windshield close to the stereo cam- eras. In such conditions, be sure to keep the windshield clean at all times (indicated by ). Otherwise the system may not operate correctly. When this function detects that the fronts of the stereo cameras are dirty, no EyeSight functions are activated except for Conventional Cruise Control.

The stereo camera lenses are precision components. Always observe the following precautions when handling them.

- Never touch the stereo camera lenses, and do not attempt to wipe or clean the lenses. Doing so could cause lens damage or contamination and lead to improper system performance. If you ever touch a lens for any reason, be sure to contact a SUBARU dealer.

- When cleaning the front windshield, cover the cam- era covers with plastic wrap, such as food wrap- ping, or something similar to prevent glass cleaner from getting on the cam- era lenses.

- If having your vehicle washed at a service sta- tion, etc., be sure to request that the attendant covers the camera covers before washing the vehi- cle.

Do not subject the stereo cameras to a strong impact. Do not remove or disassemble the stereo cameras. Do not change the positions where the stereo cameras are installed or

modify any of the surrounding structures. Do not install an interior rearview mirror other than a genuine SUBARU

rearview mirror (such as a wide-type mirror) and the sun visor. Also, use the rearview mirror so that it does not obstruct the stereo cameras. Failure to do so may affect the stereo cameras field of vision and could prevent the EyeSight system from functioning properly.

EyeSight includes the following seven functions.

Adaptive Cruise Control This function maintains the set vehicle speed and when there is a vehicle in front in the same traffic lane, it tracks the speed of the vehicle in front up to the maximum of the set vehicle speed.

* Refer to page 21.

Pre-Collision Braking System This function uses a following distance warning feature to warn the driver to take evasive action when there is the possibility of a collision with a vehicle or obstacle in front of the drivers vehicle. If the driver still does not take evasive action, the brakes are quickly applied automatically just before the collision in order to reduce the collision damage or, if possible, prevent the collision.

* Refer to page 43.

Pre-Collision Throttle Management This function reduces accidental forward movement caused by the selector lever being placed in the wrong position or the accelerator pedal being accidently depressed, or depressed too strongly.

* Refer to page 52.

Lane Departure Warning This function warns the driver when the vehicle is about to depart the traffic lane during driv- ing.

* Refer to page 58.

Lane Sway Warning This system detects vehicle drifting caused by driver fatigue, failure to concentrate on the road, inattention, strong crosswinds or other factors, and warns the driver.

* Refer to page 61.

Lead Vehicle Start Alert This function notifies the driver when the vehicle in front has started moving but the drivers vehicle has not.

* Refer to page 64.

Detection of the vehicle in front by the EyeSight stereo cameras Under the following road conditions or conditions of your vehicle, detection

of the vehicle in front may not be possible. Vehicles in neighboring traffic lanes or roadside objects may also be incorrectly detected. Under condi- tions such as these, do not use Adaptive Cruise Control. If cruise control is currently in use, operate the brake pedal and take other action as neces- sary.

- When tracking begins from a short following distance, such as when the vehicle in front is a vehicle that cut into your lane

- When driving on curved roads, at the start and end of a curve and on roads with continuous curves (These conditions make it difficult for the system to detect vehicles because they are outside the detectable area.)

- When driving on an on- ramp or off-ramp to a free- way, highway, or other restricted access road (EyeSight Adaptive Cruise Control is not designed for use in this kind of driving environment.)

- When driving in an urban, or suburban environment (Adaptive Cruise Control is not appropriate for use in these driving areas. Adaptive Cruise Control should only be used on limited-access highways.)

- When the vehicle in front is not directly ahead of your vehicle and is shifted to one side

- When there is an obstacle at the side of the road

- When the speed difference with the vehicle (or object) in front is more than 20 MPH (30 km/h)

- When a vehicle cuts into your lane in front of you - When the distance between vehicles is extremely small

- When your vehicle is drifting within the lane - When driving on a bumpy or unpaved road surface - When driving on a road with extremely narrow lanes, such as when traf-

fic restrictions are in effect or in areas where construction work is taking place

- When normal driving has become compromised due to an accident or malfunction

- When extremely heavy cargo is loaded in the cargo area, rear seat or trunk of your vehicle

There are limits to the capabilities of Adaptive Cruise Control. Even when the vehicle in front is detected, the system may not be able to decelerate in time in cases such as when the difference in speeds is large or when the vehicle in front decelerates suddenly. Operate the brake pedal and decel- erate as necessary.

Before using the system, perform a daily inspection and verify that there are no malfunctions of the tires or brakes. *Refer to the separate Warranty and Maintenance Booklet.

If the buzzer sounds frequently, do not use Adaptive Cruise Control.

Continued from previous page Even when the following distance is short, the brake more warning may

not activate in the following cases. - When the speed difference compared to the vehicle in front is small (the

two vehicles are travelling at almost the same speed) - When the vehicle in front is traveling faster than your vehicle (the follow-

ing distance is gradually increasing) - When another vehicle cuts into your lane very close to your vehicle - When the vehicle in front decelerated suddenly - When there are repeated uphill and downhill grades

CAUTION After Adaptive Cruise Control has started, it maintains control continuously

according to the behavior of the vehicle in front. When your vehicle comes to a stop because the vehicle in front has stopped, the automatic braking function will be cancelled immediately after stopping and the vehicle will start creeping forward gradually (at the same time three short beeps and a single long beep will sound). Be sure to depress the brake pedal and stop the vehicle completely. Note that the vehicle is not maintained at a standstill position and will not automatically start moving from a standstill position.

Braking may not be sufficient depending on the following conditions. Oper- ate the brake pedal and decelerate as necessary.

- Vehicle conditions (amount of load, number of occupants, etc.) - Road conditions (grade, slipperiness, shape, bumps, etc.) - Vehicle maintenance status (brake systems, tire wear, air pressure, tem-

porary spare tire is being used, etc.) - When the brakes are cold. (For example, just after the engine is started

or when the outside temperature is low.) - For a short period of time when driving after the engine is started until the

engine has warmed-up - When the brakes are overheated on downhill grades (braking effective-

ness may be reduced) - When driving in rain or after washing the vehicle (the brakes may

become wet and braking effectiveness may be reduced) - When the speed to potential obstacles is more than 20 MPH (30 km/h)

When there is no vehicle in front in the same lane, the vehicle drives constantly at the set vehicle speed. When there is a vehicle in front in the same lane, the vehicle tracks the vehi- cle in front up to the maximum set vehicle speed. When the vehicle stops because the vehi- cle in front has stopped, the automatic braking function will be cancelled immediately after stopping and the vehicle will start creeping forward gradually. The vehicle is capable of being controlled at a speed between approximately 0 and 90 MPH (145 km/h). Please remember that you should not exceed posted speed limits.

Brake more warning When the system determines that braking applied by Adaptive Cruise Control will be insuffi- cient, a buzzer will sound and an indicator in the meter display will illuminate to warn the driver. Also, a pop-up screen will be displayed in the multi function display.

* Refer to page 42.

Functions of Adaptive Cruise Control

CAUTION If the driver operates the brake pedal during automatic braking, the pedal may feel stiff; however, this is not a malfunction. By depressing the brake pedal further you can apply more braking force. When the brake pedal is released it will return to its original condition.

NOTE Vehicles in front in the same traffic lane are detected by the stereo cam-

eras within a distance of approximately 265 ft (80 m) in the forward direc- tion. However the detection distance may be reduced depending on the traffic environment, driving conditions, and conditions of the vehicle in front.

Changing the SI-DRIVE mode allows adaptive cruise control to track the vehicle in front utilizing the characteristics of each mode.

When driving on a curve, the vehicle may not accelerate, or may deceler- ate, even if the set speed is higher than the current vehicle speed.

If the (Adaptive Cruise Control) is not displayed when the (CRUISE) switch is pressed, there may be a malfunction in the system. Contact a SUBARU dealer and have the system inspected.

Some noises may be audible during automatic braking. This is caused by the braking control and does not indicate a malfunction.

When a vehicle in front is detected, a buzzer sounds 1 short beep and the lead vehicle indi- cator will be displayed. The vehicle tracks the lead vehicle in front and maintains the selected following distance. At this time, the speed upper limit is the set vehicle speed. If the vehicle in front is no longer detected, a buzzer sounds 1 short beep and the lead vehicle indicator turns off.

Operation of Adaptive Cruise Control When no vehicle in front is detected

The vehicle drives constantly at the set tar- get vehicle speed between approximately 25 MPH (40 km/h) and 90 MPH (145 km/h).

NOTE The set vehicle speed can be adjusted within the range from 25 MPH (40

km/h) to 90 MPH (145 km/h). If cruise control is set while driving the vehicle at approximately 25 MPH

(40 km/h) or less, the set vehicle speed is automatically set to 25 MPH (40 km/h).

For turbo models, if the Adaptive Cruise Control is set while the S# (Sports Sharp mode) of SI-DRIVE is selected, the shift position indicator will change from the gear position to the position.

NOTE The buzzer sound (lead vehicle acquisition sound) that occurs when a vehicle in front is detected or no longer detected while Adaptive Cruise Control is set can be turned off by customization. * Refer to page 79.

When a vehicle in front is detected The vehicle tracks the lead vehicle in front, and will maintain the chosen following dis- tance, up to the set target vehicle speed - between 25 MPH (40 km/h) and 90 MPH (145 km/h).

If the lead vehicle is no longer tracked within a distance of approximately 100 ft (30 m) and a speed of approximately 20 MPH (30 km/h) or less is detected, a buzzer sounds single long beep and Adaptive Cruise Control function is canceled. At this time, the lead vehicle indicator flashes.

If the vehicle in front is no longer detected under conditions other than the previous ones, the vehicle gradually accelerates back to the set target vehicle speed and will drive at that constant speed. If a vehicle in front is detected while accelerat- ing to the set target vehicle speed, vehicle tracking will be started again.

NOTE When the brakes are applied by Adaptive Cruise Control, the vehicles

brake lights will illuminate. Even if there is no lead vehicle present, on a downhill grade, the Adaptive

Cruise Controls automatic brake may operate in order to maintain the set target vehicle speed.

To temporarily accelerate quickly, use the accelerator pedal.

CAUTION When Adaptive Cruise Control is operating, actual vehicle speed is con-

trolled according to the lead vehicle. Therefore, if the RES/+ switch is pressed and set to a speed higher than the speed of the lead vehicle, the vehicle will not accelerate - it will maintain a safe following distance as first priority. However because doing so changed the set vehicle target speed, when the lead vehicle is no longer detected (for example if you change to a free- way lane with no vehicles in front), the vehicle will accelerate to that new set target speed. Change the set vehicle target speed while briefly check- ing the value shown in the set speed display on the meter display.

When the accelerator pedal is depressed with Adaptive Cruise Control on, automatic braking control and warnings by Adaptive Cruise Control will not occur. However, if there is a high risk of collision with an obstacle in front of the vehicle at this time, the warning and braking control of the Pre-Collision Braking System may activate.

Ordinarily, while Adaptive Cruise Control is functioning, acceleration and deceleration are performed automatically according to the speed of the lead vehicle (if one is detected). However, when your vehicle approaches a lead vehicle, for example if it is necessary to accelerate for a lane change or other reason, and if the vehicle in front suddenly decelerates, or if another vehicle cuts into your path, operate the accelerator pedal or brake pedal and accelerate or decelerate as appropriate for the existing conditions.

Brake more warning The brake more warning is activated while Adaptive Cruise Control is tracking a lead vehicle. The brake more warning warns the driver when it determines that deceleration by current driver braking control is insufficient. When the brake more function operates, the lead vehicle indicator will flash and a buzzer will sound several short beeps. In addition, a pop-up screen will be displayed on the multi function display (for Canada). For USA models, the warning message appears on the meter display, above the multi function display. When this function activates, depress the brake pedal as necessary to decelerate and maintain a correct following distance.

WARNING

If the buzzer sounds frequently, do not use Adaptive Cruise Control. The brake more warning will not activate in the following situations. - The accelerator pedal is depressed. - The brake pedal is depressed adequately.

Even when the following distance is short, the brake more warning may not activate in the following situations.

- The difference in speed with the vehicle in front is small. (The two vehi- cles are travelling at almost the same speed.)

- The vehicle in front is traveling faster than your vehicle. (The following distance is gradually increasing.)

- Another vehicle cuts into your lane very close to your vehicle. - The vehicle in front decelerates suddenly. - When there are repeated uphill and downhill grades

The brake more warning may not activate in time in the case of a vehicle that is stopped at the end of a line at a toll gate, at a stop light or intersection or in traffic congestion, or a vehicle that is moving much slower than your vehicle.

Pre-Collision Braking System

43

Pre-Collision Braking System When there is the risk of a rear-end collision with a obstacle in front, the EyeSight system helps to minimize or prevent a collision by warning the driver. If the driver still does not take evasive action to avoid a collision, the brakes can be automatically applied just before the collision in order to reduce impact damage, or if possible, prevent the collision. When the system determines that there is a high risk of collision with an obstacle ahead, and the driver depresses the brake pedal, the system activates braking assist. (Pre-Collision Brake Assist) This system can be effective not only with frontal collisions, but also with offset (right or left) collisions. This function can be activated when the select lever is in the , or posi- tions.

Continued on next page

WARNING

Never use the Pre-Collision Braking System and Pre-Collision Brake Assist to stop your car under ordinary conditions. The Pre-Collision Braking System cannot prevent collisions under all conditions. If the driver relies only on the Pre-Collision Braking System for Brake operation, colli- sions may occur.

When a warning is activated, pay attention to the front of the vehicle and its surroundings, and operate the brake pedal and/or take other actions if nec- essary.

The EyeSight Pre-Collision Braking System function is primarily designed to prevent rear-end collisions with other vehicles when possible and to minimize damage and injuries in the event of a collision. In addition to other vehicles, things such as motorbikes, bicycles and pedestrians can also be treated as obstacles. However, there may be cases when detec- tion is not possible depending on a variety of conditions*. It is highly proba- ble that the Pre-Collision Braking System function does not work against vehicles parked in a lateral position, oncoming vehicles, backing up vehi- cles, small animals, infants, fences, walls, gates, etc.

The Pre-Collision Braking System function will operate at the point when it determines that a collision cannot be avoided and is designed to apply strong braking force just before a collision. The result of this varies depending on a variety of conditions*. Because of this, performance of this function will not always be the same.

When the Pre-Collision Braking System function is activated, it will con- tinue to operate even if the accelerator pedal is partially depressed. How- ever, it will be canceled if the accelerator pedal is fully depressed.

If the driver depresses the brake pedal or turns the steering wheel, the sys- tem may determine that this constitutes evasive action by the driver, and the automatic braking control may not activate in order to allow the driver full control.

When the difference in speed with the obstacle in front is approximately 20 MPH (30 km/h) or more, it may not be possible to avoid a collision. Even if the speed difference is approximately 20 MPH (30 km/h) or less, in cases such as when another vehicle cuts in front of you, or in other cases depending on visibility, condition of road surface and other factors*, the function may be unable to stop the vehicle or may not activate. Pre-Colli- sion Brake Assist may also not activate depending on the conditions* listed below.

*Conditions - Distance to obstacle in front of you, speed difference, proximity condi-

tions, lateral displacement (the amount of offset) - Vehicle conditions (amount of load, number of occupants, condition of

tires, etc.) - Road conditions (grade, slipperiness, shape, bumps, etc.) - When visibility ahead is poor (rain, snow, fog or smoke, etc.) - When the detected object is one of the following

A domestic animal or other animal (a dog or deer, etc.) A guardrail, telephone pole, tree, fence or wall, etc.

44

Continued from previous page - Even if the obstacle is a motorcycle, bicycle or pedestrian, depending on

the brightness of the surroundings as well as the relative movement, and aspect or angle of the object, there may be cases when the system can- not detect it.

- When the system determines that operation by the driver (based on accelerator pedal operation, braking, steering wheel angle, etc.) is intended as evasive action

- Vehicle maintenance status (brake systems, tire wear, tire pressure, whether a temporary spare tire is being used, etc.)

- When towing a trailer or vehicle, etc. - When the brakes are cold due to outside temperature being low or just

after starting the engine. - When the brakes are overheated on downhill grades (braking effective-

ness is reduced) - When driving in rain or after washing the vehicle (the brakes are wet and

braking effectiveness is reduced) - Recognition conditions of the stereo cameras

In particular, the function may be unable to stop the vehicle or may not activate in the following cases. Bad weather (for example heavy rain, a blizzard or thick fog) When visibility is poor due to sand, smoke or water vapor in the air or

when the vehicle in front or oncoming traffic causes water, snow, dirt, dust or other substances to obscure the view through the windshield

When driving at night or in a tunnel without the headlights on When driving at night or in a tunnel when there is a vehicle in front that

does not have its taillights on When approaching a motorcycle, bicycle or pedestrian at night When ambient light is poor in the evening or early morning When a vehicle, motorcycle, bicycle or pedestrian is outside the area

illuminated by the headlights When affected by strong light from the front (for example, sunlight at

dawn, sunset or headlight high beams, etc.) When there is snow, frost, dirt or dust on the windshield or it is clouded When fluid has not been fully wiped off the windshield during or after

washer use When the target cannot be correctly recognized because the stereo

cameras view is obstructed by water droplets from rain or the window washer, or by the wiper blades.

When the stereo cameras field of view is obstructed (for example by a canoe on the roof of the vehicle)

When the rear aspect of the vehicle in front is low, small or irregular (the system may recog- nize another part of the vehicle as its rear and will determine operation from that) - When there is an

empty truck or trailer with no rear and/or side panels on the cargo bed

- With vehicles that have cargo protruding from their back ends

- With non-standard shaped vehicles (vehicle transporters or vehicles with a sidecar fitted, etc.)

wise the Pre-Collision Braking System may activate unexpectedly. - When the vehicle is being towed - When loading the vehicle onto a carrier - When a chassis dynamometer, free-rollers or similar equipment is used - When a mechanic lifts up the vehicle, starts the engine and spins the

wheels freely - When passing hanging banners, flags or branches, or when thick/tall

vegetation is contacting the vehicle - When using a drive-through

car wash

The Pre-Collision Braking System may activate in the following situations. Therefore concentrate on safe driving.

- When passing through an automatic gate (opening and shutting) - When driving close to the vehicle in front - When driving in a location where the grade of the road changes rapidly

- When passing through clouds of steam or smoke - When the exhaust gas emitted by the vehicle in front is clearly visible in cold

weather, etc.

- When there is an obstacle on a curve or intersection

- When narrowly passing a vehicle or an object

- When stopping very close to a wall or a vehicle in front

If there is cargo or installed accessories, etc. that are pro- truding over the edge of the front bumper, the vehicles length will increase and the system may not be able to pre- vent a collision.

If the driver operates the brake pedal during automatic braking, the pedal may feel stiff; however, this is nor- mal. By depressing the brake pedal further you can apply more braking force.

NOTE When the Pre-Collision Braking System OFF indicator light illuminates, this

function will not operate. * Refer to page 51. Some unusual noises may be audible during automatic braking. This is

caused by the braking control and is normal.

Detection of pedestrians The EyeSight system can also detect pedestrians. The EyeSight system detects pedestrians from their size, shape and movement. The system detects a pedestrian when the contour of the head and shoulders are clear and the left/right balance is symmetrical.

WARNING

The EyeSight systems Pre-Collision Braking function also treats pedestrians as obstacles. However, depending on the conditions, there may be cases when the system cannot detect a pedestrian. In the following conditions, the possibility that the system may not be able to detect a pedestrian as an object is particularly high. When pedestrians are walking in a group When a pedestrian is next to a wall or other obstacle When a pedestrian is using an umbrella When a pedestrian is wearing clothes that are a similar color to the sur-

rounding environment When a pedestrian is carrying bulky luggage When a pedestrian is bent over, crouching down or lying down When a pedestrian is in a dark location When a pedestrian suddenly jumps out into the field of view

When there is an obstacle in the forward direction during driving, the system activates in the following sequence in order to warn the driver, activate braking control, and active the brake lights.

(1) Following Distance Warning: When the system determines that there is a risk of collision, a buzzer sounds repeated short beeps and the indicators on the meter display and the multi function display illuminate to warn the driver. The Following Distance Warning operates when Adaptive Cruise Control is not set. When the driver depresses the brake pedal to decelerate and achieves a suitable following distance, the warning is canceled.

(2) First Braking and Warning: When the system determines that there is a high risk of collision with an obstacle in front, a buzzer sounds repeated short beeps and the indicators on the meter display and the multi function display illuminate to warn the driver, and braking control is activated. If the system determines that the amount of evasive action (braking, steering, etc.) taken by the driver has reduced the risk of collision, braking activation is canceled.

(3) Second Braking and Warning: If the system then determines that the risk of collision is extremely high, the buzzer changes to a continuous beeping sound and stronger braking control is activated. If, despite any eva- sive action taken by the driver, the system subsequently determines that a collision is unavoidable, braking control is continued. When the vehicle stops, a buzzer sounds three short beeps and a single long beep. The automatic braking function is cancelled approximately 2 seconds after the vehicle stops and the vehicle starts creeping forward gradually.

When the Pre-Collision Braking System is activated utilizing first braking or second braking (when the system determines that there is a high risk of collision with an obstacle in front), if the driver depresses the brake pedal, the system determines that this is emergency braking and activates braking assist automatically.

CAUTION The Pre-Collision Braking System will not activate when the EyeSight warn- ing light ( ) is illuminated or flashing, or when the EyeSight temporarily stops.

NOTE Neither primary Pre-Collision Braking nor secondary Pre-Collision Braking will operate in the following conditions. When the vehicle speed is approximately 1 MPH (1 km/h) or lower, or

approximately 100 MPH (160 km/h) or higher. When the Vehicle Dynamics Control is functioning.

Pre-Collision Braking Assist operation

CAUTION If the driver depresses the brake pedal manually while following distance warning is activated, the Pre-Collision Braking Assist will not work. (The vehicle decelerates with the normal braking force operated by the driver.)

NOTE Pre-Collision Braking Assist function does not operate when the vehicle

speed is approximately 7 MPH (10 km/h) or less or 100 MPH (160 km/h) or more.

For information about the braking assist function, refer to the Owners Manual for your vehicle.

Pre-Collision Throttle Management When an obstacle is detected in front of the vehicle, and the vehicle is stopped or travel- ling very slowly, if the system determines that the accelerator pedal has been depressed by more than the necessary amount (due to driver error), it greatly restricts engine output and ensures that vehicle forward movement is slower than normal in order to give the driver additional time to brake or react.

During system operation, a buzzer will sound several short beeps and the lead vehicle indi- cator and the following distance setting indicator will blink in the meter display. Also, a pop- up screen will be displayed in the multi function display. This function only activates when the transmission select lever is in the or position.

WARNING

Do not rely excessively on Pre-Collision Throttle Management. Pre- Collision Throttle Management is not designed to help you avoid collisions in many situations. Always check the selector lever and pedal positions as well as the surrounding environment before starting and operating the vehicle. Relying only on Pre-Collision Throttle Management could result in an accident. Pre-Collision Throttle Management is not designed to maintain the vehicle

in a stopped condition.

Pre-Collision Throttle Management will not reduce acceleration under all conditions. It is also not designed to prevent collisions.

Pre-Collision Throttle Management will operate when an obstacle is detected in front. However, this function will not reduce acceleration in cases where no obstacle is recognized (for example when approaching a cliff, etc.)

Do not intentionally depress the accelerator pedal excessively when there are obstacles nearby. If the driver relies only on Pre-Collision Throttle Management to control acceleration, collisions may occur.

If your vehicle is trapped on a railroad crossing and you are trying to escape by driving through the crossing gate, the stereo cameras may rec- ognize the crossing gate as an obstacle and Pre-Collision Throttle Management system may activate. In this case, remain calm and either continue to depress the accelerator pedal or turn off the Pre-Collision Throttle Management system.

* Refer to page 57. Pre-Collision Throttle Management may not activate depending on the fol-

lowing conditions: - The distance between your vehicle and the obstacle, speed difference,

and lateral displacement (amount of offset) - Recognition status of the stereo cameras

In particular, the function may not activate in the following cases: Bad weather (for example heavy rain, a blizzard or thick fog) When visibility is poor due to sand or smoke in the air When light is poor in the evening, early morning, or at night In a dark area (indoor parking area, etc.) When there is an obstacle outside the area illuminated by the head-

lights When affected by strong light from the front (for example sunlight at

sunrise or sunset headlight high beams, etc.) When there is snow, frost, dirt or dust on the windshield, or it is clouded When fluid has not been fully wiped off the windshield during or after

use of the window washer When obstacles cannot be correctly recognized due to water droplets

from rain or the washer, or the wiper blades obstructing the stereo cam- eras field of view

When the stereo cameras field of view is obstructed (for example by a canoe on the roof of the vehicle)

With low obstacles (low wall, crash barrier, low vehicle, etc.) When the size and height of an obstacle is smaller than the limitations

of the stereo cameras recognition capability With small animals or children With pedestrians who are sitting or lying down

Conventional Cruise Control

Conventional Cruise Control is a driving support system intended to allow more comfortable driving on expressways, freeways and interstate highways. It can be used to travel at a con- stant speed by maintaining the vehicle speed that was set by the driver (approximately 25 MPH (40 km/h) to 90 MPH (145 km/h)). Please remember that you should not exceed posted speed limits.

About Conventional Cruise Control

WARNING

When Conventional Cruise Control is functioning, the system does not per- form tracking control to maintain following distance, as when using Adap- tive Cruise Control. Strive for safe driving and operate the brake pedal to decelerate the vehi- cle as necessary in order to ensure a safe following distance from the vehi- cle in front.

Under the following conditions, do not use the Conventional Cruise Control. Doing so may result in an accident.

- Roads with heavy traffic or roads with sharp curves You may fail to drive at a speed that is appropriate for the road condi- tions, possibly resulting in an accident.

- Frozen roads, snow-covered roads or slippery road surfaces The tires may spin, causing loss of control of the vehicle.

- Steep downhill grades The set vehicle speed may be exceeded.

- On a steep continuous downhill grade The brakes may overheat.

- When towing a trailer.

CAUTION When using Cruise Control, be sure to check the display screen to confirm which Cruise Control mode is selected: Adaptive Cruise Control or Conventional Cruise Control.

CAUTION If the selector lever is shifted to the position, the Conventional Cruise Control will automatically be cancelled. However, do not shift the selector lever into the position while driving except for an emergency. Doing so will eliminate the engines tendency to brake the vehicle.

NOTE If EyeSight is malfunctioning, the EyeSight warning indicator light, Pre-

Collision Braking System OFF indicator light and Lane Departure Warning OFF indicator light illuminate. Also, a pop-up screen will be displayed on the multi function display. If this occurs, stop the vehicle in a safe location and then stop the engine and restart it. If the indicators remain illuminated after restarting the engine, Conventional Cruise Control cannot be used. This will not interfere with ordinary driving; however the system should be inspected by a SUBARU dealer as soon as possible.

* Refer to page 76. When operation of Conventional Cruise Control has been automatically

canceled, perform the set operation again after the condition that caused the cancellation has been eliminated. If cruise control cannot be set even after the condition has been corrected, EyeSight may be malfunctioning. This will not interfere with ordinary driving; however the system should be inspected by a SUBARU dealer as soon as possible.

Resuming from temporary cancellation (resetting the set vehi- cle speed)

To recall and set a vehicle speed that has been previously set, press the RES/+ switch. (The meter display shows the set condition again.) Resume is possible when a vehicle speed was previously set, and the current vehicle speed is approximately 20 MPH (30 km/h) or more.

NOTE The vehicle speed stored in memory is erased at the following times: - The main cruise control was turned off by pressing the (CRUISE)

switch. - Either vehicle Dynamics Control or Traction Control Function has been

activated. - The cruise control mode was switched from Conventional Cruise Control

to Adaptive Cruise Control. The vehicle will drive at a constant speed that was set between approxi-

mately 25 MPH (40 km/h) and 90 MPH (145 km/h). If there is no vehicle speed in the memory (a previously set vehicle speed),

the vehicle speed cannot be resumed by depressing the RES/+ switch.

Troubleshooting

Cruise control cannot be set.

Did you remember to press the (CRUISE) switch? If you have not pressed the (CRUISE) switch, the (Adaptive Cruise Control) indicator will not be shown.

Is EyeSight operation temporarily stopped? When EyeSight is temporarily stopped, one of the EyeSight temporary stop indi- cators (E1, E2 or E3) will be displayed on the data display. Set cruise control again after the reason for the temporary stop has been cor- rected.

Is the [READY] indicator displayed? When Adaptive Cruise Control is being used Cruise control cannot be set when the [READY] indicator is not displayed. Set cruise control when the [READY] indi- cator is displayed.

The [READY] indicator is not displayed.

Have you selected Conventional Cruise Control? With Conventional Cruise Control, (following distance setting) will not be dis- played on the meter display.

Are the requirements for setting cruise control met? In any of the following cases, the [READY] indicator will not be displayed.

The brake pedal is depressed. The vehicle speed is over 90 MPH (145 km/h). (When no vehicle in front

has been detected, the speed is between approximately 25 MPH (40 km/h) and 90 MPH (145 km/h).)

The meter display indicates that the shift position indicator is in any posi- tion other than . (The select lever or paddle shift switches are manually operated.)

The drivers seatbelt is unfastened. Any door of the drivers, front passengers and rear doors is opened. The parking brake is applied (when the brake warning light is illuminated). The vehicle is on a steep grade. The steering wheel is turned significantly in either direction. Vehicle Dynamics Control is off, or is turned off. The X-mode is turned on. (The X-mode indicator illuminates.)

Troubleshooting

85

A vehicle (in front of your vehicle) is not detected, is detected later or detection is lost quickly.

Is the vehicle in front stopped, moving slowly relative to your vehicle or moving extremely slowly? Detection of stopped vehicles, vehicle moving slowly relative to your vehicle, and vehicles moving extremely slowly may be difficult.

Is the windshield dirty or fogged? If the windshield is dirty or fogged, it may not be possible to detect object or vehi- cles. Clean off the dirt or fog from the windshield, and then try using the system again.

Is the vehicle in front far away? The maximum detection distance of EyeSights stereo cameras is approximately 265 ft (80 m). Detection is not possible if the vehicle is farther away.

Is the vehicle on a curve? The detection range is limited in the left and right directions to approximately a 25- degree arc from the vehicle centerline when the cameras are properly aimed.

Is the vehicle on a road with repeated uphill and downhill grades (such as an over- pass), or on a banked road? The detection range is limited in the up and down directions.

Did the vehicle detected in front change? Detection may be delayed after the vehicle in front has changed.

Have water, snow or other substances been kicked up by the vehicle in front as it drives? When water or snow have been kicked up, it may not be possible to detect the vehicle in front.

Control is activated even though no vehicle in front is detected?

Is there a vehicle in the neighboring lane? Depending on the road conditions, vehicles in neighboring lanes may be detected as well as a vehicle directly in front.

Are you driving on or near a curve? When driving on a curve, braking control may be activated in response to guard rails, the angle of the steering wheel, or roadside structures.

The Lead Vehicle Start Alert activates, even though there is no vehicle in front.

Depending on surrounding objects, traffic environment and weather, the Lead Vehicle Start Alert may issue a warning in response to objects other than a vehicle that appear in front of your vehicle.

B8212BE-A.book 85

Troubleshooting

86

EyeSight does not restart after a temporary stop.

Is Vehicle Dynamics Control turned off? EyeSight cannot be activated when Vehicle Dynamics Control is off.

Is the X-mode turned on? EyeSight cannot be activated when the X-mode is turned on.

Are you driving in the rain with old wipers or is there an oily film on the windshield? Replace the wipers with new ones, or clean the oily film off the windshield.

Is your vehicle subject to sunlight from the front (sunset or sunrise, etc.) or to bright headlights from oncoming vehicles at nighttime? In these cases, EyeSight may temporarily stop operating.

The timing of the brake more warning is sometimes earlier and sometimes later than what seems to be normal operation.

The brake more warning sounds when the system determines that more braking is necessary, based on conditions such as the distance from the vehicle in front and the difference in speed. As a result, timing may vary depending on how the brake of the vehicle in front is applied.

Acceleration is sometimes slower and sometimes faster when the vehicle in front is no longer detected.

Depending on the timing of when the detection of the vehicle in front is lost, EyeSights ability to react may be slower, causing the start of acceleration to feel delayed and braking time to feel longer than what seems to be normal operation.

Which SI-DRIVE mode is selected? The acceleration varies due to the characteristics change of Adaptive Cruise Con- trol depending on which mode is selected.

Cruise control is canceled automatically.

Did you perform one of the following operations? Manually depressing the brake pedal Pressing the CANCEL switch for cruise control Operating the paddle shift lever Shifting the selector lever to the position Pressing the Vehicle Dynamics Control OFF switch (VDC OFF indicator

illuminates.) Pressing the X-mode switch (X mode indicator illuminates.)

Has the EyeSight system temporarily stopped?

Troubleshooting

87

A noise occurs when automatic braking control activates.

This is the sound of the automatic braking control operating.

Braking control activates frequently when driving in heavy traffic.

Unlike a human driving, the EyeSight system performs control based only on the actions of vehicles or objects in front. As a result, acceleration and deceleration may be more frequent. If it is difficult to maintain a consistent following distance, do not use Adaptive Cruise Control.

A small jolt occurs when cruise control is used on a downhill grade.

Downshift control occasionally occurs on downhill grades, and may produce a small jolt if it activates. <
