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. Making use of images created by stereo cameras specially designed by
SUBARU, EyeSight detects the vehicle in front, obstacles, traffic lanes and other items.
Drivers are responsible for driving safely. Always comply with all
traffic rules and regulations regardless of the fact that your vehicle
is equipped with EyeSight. Always maintain a safe following dis-
tance behind the vehicle in front of you, pay attention to your sur-
roundings and the driving conditions , operate the brake pedal and
take other action as necessary in order to maintain a safe following
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 driv-
ing when the driver is not paying complete attention to the road
ahead. It also cannot prevent collisions from occurring in all driving
There are limits to the EyeSight recognition performance and con-
trol performance. Be sure to read the instructions for each function
before using the system, and always use it properly. Improper use
may lead to failure of control performance, which could cause an

• For Adaptive Cruise Control, refer to page 33.
• For Pre-Collision Throttle Management, refer to page 53.
• For Conventional Cruise Control, refer to page 66.
The EyeSight system in your vehicle is designed for use in coun-
tries in which traffic operates on the right-hand side of the road.

•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 vehicles, obstacles and traffic
• 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 sys-
tem to detect the vehicle in front, motorcycles, bicycles, pedestrians and
obstacles on the road, and lane markers. Also, EyeSight may temporarily
stop operating. However, the temporary stop will be canceled once these
conditions have improved and the vehicle is driven for a short period of
- Bad weather (for example heavy rain, a blizzard or thick fog). In particu- lar, 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 of oncoming traffic, etc.)
- When the front windshield washer is being used.
- 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 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 or
other substances to obscure the view
- When the stereo cameras’ field of view is obstructed (for example by a canoe on the roof of the vehicle)
Low objects surrounding the vehicle
cannot be detected.

- When passing through the entrance or exit of a tunnel
- When the rear aspect of the vehicle in front is low, small or irregular (forexample 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 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 stereo cameras are obstructed by a hand, etc. (If even one of the cameras is obstructed, the system does not operate properly.)
- 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
- 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 (
Ÿ refer to page 31) and the Lane Departure Warning

ventional Cruise Control. Contact a SUBARU dealer and have the system
• When the Vehicle Dynamics Control warning light is illuminated, the Pre-
Collision Braking System may not operate properly. In this case, turn off
the Pre-Collision Braking System. Also, do not use the Adaptive Cruise
Control or Conventional Cruise Control.

Handling of the Stereo Cameras
•A function is included that will automatic ally 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
• The stereo camera is a precision component. Always observe the following
precautions especially when handling lenses.
- 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
