What is Blind Spot Monitoring and how does it work?

The Toyota Blind Spot Monitor uses a series of exterior cameras to scan your vehicle’s perimeter and alert you to any traffic in your blind spots on either side of the vehicle. When a vehicle is detected in your blind spot, a yellow warning light, similar to a warning light you would see on your dashboard, will light up on your side mirror. If you attempt to change lanes while a vehicle is in your blind spot, the warning light will flash providing you with an eye-catching cue that lets you know that you should refrain from changing lanes at that time.

Many 2018 Toyota vehicles equipped with the Blind Spot Monitoring feature are also equipped with Rear Cross Traffic Alert. Like the Blind Spot Monitor, this feature uses exterior cameras to scan the perimeter for nearby vehicles and was made to be used while backing up in tight parking areas that can often hinder rear visibility.
