Blind spot information system

Blind spot information system  - Overview - Lincoln MKS

Blind Spot Information System (BLIS®) with cross-traffic alert can detect vehicles in blind spots during normal driving as well as traffic approaching from the sides when the driver is reversing out of parking spots.

BLIS uses radar sensors to continuously monitor each side of the vehicle to detect when another vehicle enters the defined blind spot zone (within 45 feet). A light appears on the corresponding sideview mirror to indicate another vehicle is in the defined blind spot.

On models without optional BLIS, standard spotter mirrors feature an integrated mirror facet that provides a clear view of anything in a traditional blind spot of a typical exterior rearview mirror.
