Toyota Avalon Service & Repair Manual: System Description

SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

GENERAL

(a) This system has front, passenger side, driver side and television camera assemblies mounted around the vehicle to display around the vehicle on the radio and display receiver assembly. The multi-display also shows a composite view consisting of the area behind the vehicle and parking guidelines to assist the driver in parking the vehicle by monitoring the area around the vehicle.

When the rear camera detection function of the television camera assembly detects a pedestrian within the detection area when reversing, a buzzer sounds and an icon is displayed on the multi-display to warn the driver.

(b) This system consists of the following components:

(1) Parking assist ECU

(2) Panoramic view monitor switch

(3) Television camera assembly

(4) Front television camera assembly

(5) Side television camera assembly LH

(6) Side television camera assembly RH

(7) Radio and display receiver assembly

(8) Network gateway ECU

(9) Steering Sensor

(10) Skid control ECU

(11) Main body ECU (multiplex network body ECU)

(12) Clearance warning ECU assembly

(13) ECM

(14) Blind spot monitor sensor

(15) RCTA buzzer (blind spot monitor buzzer)

(16) BKUP LP relay

(c) This system is equipped with a self-diagnosis system, which is operated from a designated window that appears on the multi-display, just as in the navigation system.

FUNCTION OF COMPONENTS

(a) The parking assist ECU controls the system by using information from the following components.

Item

Function

Television Camera Assembly

  • Generates a video feed showing the rear side of the vehicle and transmits the video to the parking assist ECU

COMMUNICATION SYSTEM OUTLINE

(a) CAN communication system

(1) The panoramic view monitor system uses CAN communication for data communications between the parking assist ECU and each ECU.

(2) If a problem occurs in the CAN communication line, the parking assist ECU outputs a CAN communication malfunction DTC. (To check, use the Techstream.)

Click here

(3) If a problem occurs in the CAN communication line, the parking assist ECU outputs a CAN communication malfunction DTC. (To check, use the radio and display receiver assembly diagnosis screen.)

Click here

(4) If a CAN communication line malfunction DTC is output, repair the malfunction in the communication line and troubleshoot the panoramic view monitor system when data communication is normal.

(5) Since the CAN communication line has its own length and route, it cannot be repaired temporarily with a bypass wire, etc.

VIDEO SIGNALS

(a) Video signal circuit

(1) Video signals from the front television camera assembly are input into the parking assist ECU via analog communication lines (vehicle wire harness).

(2) Video signals from the side television camera assembly LH are input into the parking assist ECU via analog communication lines (vehicle wire harness).

(3) Video signals from the side television camera assembly RH are input into the parking assist ECU via analog communication lines (vehicle wire harness).

(4) Video signals from the television camera assembly are input into the parking assist ECU via analog communication lines (vehicle wire harness).

(5) Video signals from the parking assist ECU are input into the radio and display receiver assembly via analog communication lines (vehicle wire harness).

(b) Screen display

(1) Video signals input from each camera are processed in the parking assist ECU and displayed on the radio and display receiver assembly as the panoramic view monitor system screen.

DIAGNOSTIC FUNCTION OUTLINE

(a) This panoramic view monitor system has a diagnostic function displayed in the radio and display receiver assembly. This function enables the calibration (adjustment and verification) of the panoramic view monitor system.
