Mazda Rear Vehicle Monitoring System

It helps a driver avoid dangerous situations or even collisions with other vehicles during a lane change.  Two radar sensors, one mounted in each side of the rear bumper, constantly measure the distance to, and the relative speed of, surrounding vehicles.

At speeds above 60 km/h, Mazda’s RVM warns the driver with a proximity indicator light in the door mirror on the side where, either a vehicle is in the blind spot area, or a vehicle will approach this area in the next 5 seconds from within a zone of up to 50 m.  If the driver switches on the turn signal in the direction of the approaching vehicle, the proximity light blinks rapidly and a beeper sounds to warn the driver not to change lanes.  The system is designed to work in virtually every kind of weather and detect all types of vehicles, including motorcycles.
