The Rear Vehicle Monitoring System (RVM) uses a rear bumper-mounted quasi-milliwave radar to measure the distance to cars approaching from behind or in neighboring lanes. It warns the driver by alarm and warning lamp if there is a danger of collision when changing lanes.
The 24GHz quasi-milliwave radar is resistant to harsh weather or solar radiation, and it detects vehicles over a wide area. The system accurately detects vehicles approaching from behind during high-speed driving.
The RVM mounted to the all-new Mazda6 (Atenza) is able to work at the speed as low as 15km/h, so it can assist the driver in a variety of driving situations from regular roads to highways.
* RVM may not perform as expected due to factors such as bad weather (rain, snow, fog, etc.). Additionally, it may not appropriately detect certain types of vehicles, like small motorcycles, low vehicles, etc.
* RVM is designed to reduce the risk of accidents by warning if there is a danger of collision when changing lanes. However the system has its limitations, and no safety system or combination of such systems can prevent all accidents. These systems are not a replacement for safe and attentive driving. Please drive carefully at all times and do not rely on technology to prevent an accident. Not all of these systems are available on all models or in all markets, so please contact your local Mazda dealer for details on availability. Please refer to your owners' manual for additional important system details, limitations and warnings.
