Front Cross Traffic Warning

WHAT IS IT?

Akin to rear CTW, front CTW identifies vehicles approaching from the right or left in forward like from a side street. It is typically part of well-engineered Forward Collision Warning system

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The same radar and ultrasonic sensor from the FCW, which are typically located on the vehicle's front grille and/or front bumper, to scan the vicinity for crossing traffic -- i.e., cars approaching from side streets – in addition to directly in front of you. When an approaching object or oncoming car is detected, the driver is alerted to the hazard
