The system consists of four ultrasonic sensors
If the vehicle sustains damage to the rear

bumper/fascia, leaving it misaligned or bent, the
warning output that is emitted from the rear audio
sensing zone may be altered causing inaccurate

corners of the bumper.
The sensors sequentially transmit short ultrasonic
pulses (48kHz) then listen for the echo reflected from
the detected object. The electronic control unit using
triangulation data from the four sensors calculates the
distance. Various sound absorbing/reflecting materials
or operating conditions can have an effect on the
detection range:
Ultrasonic waves, heavy rain and/or conditions
causing disruptive reflections may lead to objects
not being detected by the sensors.
