      Rear Cross-Traffic Alert

      Also known as: Rear Cross-Path Detection, Moving Object Detection

      New research from IIHS indicates that a rear cross-traffic alert system alone can reduce backing crashes by more than 20 percent.

      Rear cross-traffic alert (RCTA) is designed to help the vehicle back out of parking spaces where approaching traffic may be blocked from view. When the vehicle is shifted into reverse, sensors monitor the areas to the left and right. The feature will provide a visual or auditory warning if an approaching vehicle enters the detection areas.
