Hyundai Santa Cruz: Driving Safety / Forward Collision–Avoidance Assist (FCA) (Sensor fusion)

Basic function

Forward Collision Avoidance Assist is designed to help detect and monitor a vehicle on the roadway ahead or help detect if a pedestrian or cyclist is in the roadway. Forward Collision Avoidance Assist will warn the driver with an audible warning and a message in the LCD cluster if it determines that a collision is imminent. In certain cases, emergency braking may be applied.

Junction Turning function

The Junction Turning function can help avoid a collision with an oncoming vehicle when attempting to make a left hand turn at an intersection. If the function detects that a collision is imminent, a warning message occurs and in certain cases, emergency braking may be applied.

Take the following precautions to maintain optimal performance of the detecting sensor:

  • Never disassemble the detecting sensor or sensor assembly, or cause any damage to it.
  • If the detecting sensors have been replaced or repaired, have the vehicle inspected by an authorized HYUNDAI dealer.
  • Never install any accessories or stickers on the front windshield, or tint the front windshield.
  • Pay extreme caution to keep the front view camera dry.
  • Never place any reflective objects (for example, white paper, mirror) over the dashboard.
  • Do not apply license plate frame or objects, such as a bumper sticker, film or a bumper guard, near the front radar cover.
  • Always keep the front radar and cover clean and free of dirt and debris. Use only a soft cloth to wash the vehicle. Do not spray pressurized water directly on the sensor or sensor cover.
  • If the radar or around the radar has been damaged or impacted in any way, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist may not properly operate even though a warning message does not appear on the cluster. Have the vehicle inspected by an authorized HYUNDAI dealer.
  • Use only genuine parts to repair or replace a damaged front radar cover. Do not apply paint to the front radar cover.
