Blind Spot Information System (BSI)

Honda Blind Spot Information System

What is Blind Spot Information System (BSI)?

BSI is designed to detect vehicles in alert zones adjacent to your vehicle, particularly in harder to see areas commonly known as "blind spots".

How Does Blind Spot Information System (BSI) work?

BSI uses rear bumper radar sensors to detect vehicles approaching from behind in adjacent lanes. When a vehicle is detected in the zone, one of the following will occur:

  1. Turn Signal Activated in Direction of Traffic: A flashing indicator light along with an audible warning alerts the driver.
  2. Turn Signal Not Activated: A solid indicator light alerts the driver.
