Kia Carens: Blind Spot Detection system (BSD) / Description and operation

Kia Carens RP (2013-2018) Service Manual / Body Electrical System / Blind Spot Detection system (BSD) / Description and operation

Description

BSD is a system that uses two magnetic wave radar sensors attached on the rear panel to measure the distance from the vehicle in the back and senses and sets off (visual and auditory) alarms for any vehicle coming into the blind spot.
Blind Spot Detection (BSD) System : Detects other vehicles in the rear blind spot area and warns the driver by indicating on outside rearview mirror.
Lane Change Assist (LCA) System : Detects high speed vehicles approaching from rear lateral directions and warns the driver.
Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) System : Sets off warning for vehicles approaching from rear lateral direction when reversing.
