Q: Where Is the Blind Spot Monitoring System Located In My Car?

A: Your vehicle can have several blind spot monitoring sensors mounted to the side mirrors or rear bumper.

Depending on its specifications, a vehicle can also have a camera on each side to monitor traffic.

Blind spot monitoring systems have improved over the years, with some being more advanced than others. Still, most of these systems work the same way.

Many blind spot monitoring systems alert drivers using audio and visual warnings if they notice an advancing vehicle.

There are also advanced systems that are capable of controlling the steering if the vehicle is getting too close to the lane marker.

Blind spot monitoring systems were originally a luxury feature that debuted more than 20 years ago. The feature has become a standard feature in many affordable models since then.
