Third generation YP (2014-2022) / Kia Sedona YP Service Manual / Body Electrical System / Surround View Monitoring (SVM) System / Description and Operation

Surround View Monitoring System (SVM) is the system that allows video monitoring of 360 degrees around the vehicle. The system consists of 4 ultra optical cameras mounted around the vehicle (front, both sides and rear).
The video from these cameras are applied with distortion compensation, time point conversion, and video merging technologies to provide sky-view image of the vehicle''s surrounding area, as well as various other view modes.
The SVM System provides video feed of the vehicle''s surrounding area while parking or during low speed driving to the driver to enhance safety and driver''s convenience.
In addition, the system also displays video image of vehicle''s surrounding area, and includes steering wheel synchronized guide line indication, front and rear object warning, and A/S (including In-Line) tolerance compensation features.

This system displays the video images from ultra optical cameras mounted on 4 sides of the vehicle, on the Head Unit Screen. It shows 360 degrees sky-view image of the vehicle''s surrounding area, as well as various other view modes.
Major Features
Display Vehicles Surrounding in Video
The surrounding area video display function displays the 360 degrees video image captured through 4 cameras to the driver through the Head Unit Screen while the vehicle is moving at low speed or going reverse. The SVM System displays total of 8 video modes for displaying surrounding video based on the vehicle driving state and the driver''s selection.
Guide Line Indication & Steering Wheel Synchronized Feature
The Guide Line Indication & Steering Wheel Synchronized Feature is the function that assists the driver in parking by synchronizing the steering wheel with the rear view video display marked with a guide line to help anticipate the direction of the vehicle going reverse.
Front/Rear Object Warning (Obstacle Detection Feature)
The system receives obstacle warning signal from the PAS or SPAS sensors mounted on the front/rear of the vehicle and displays the obstacle location on the AVN Head Unit Screen.
Tolerance Compensation (including A/S)
Manual Tolerance Compensation Software is embedded in the SVM ECM to compensate the SVM deviation that may occur due to assembly line installation tolerance. You must first setup proper work environment in order to perform correct tolerance compensation.

SVM Mode Entry Conditions
The vehicle information is accessed regularly, even after entering SVM mode. When the conditions are met, conversion from front mode to rear mode is available, and vice versa.
When the mode is converted, the view displayed on the screen can be the initial view or the previous view depending on the conditions.
If the mode for conversion is the initial entry, the default view is selected based on the front or rear. If a continuous front-rear conversion mode occurs as forward and backward movements are repeated for parking, the previous view is recalled and displayed.
Initial Entry : When the rear and front view modes in SVM mode are displayed on the screen for the first time.
Re-entry: When switching from SVM mode to another mode, without turning off SVM, and returning to the previous mode
(e.g. Rear → Front → Rear: Re-enter rear mode / Front → Rear → Front: Re-enter front mode)
Switch mode
Vehicle speed

R Range or P Range
If any of the three conditions are satisfied
Rear mode
Except R gear
If any of the two conditions are satisfied

SVM Options
Considering the user''s convenience, the SVM provides three options for the user to select.
The window for changing options (parking guide settings) is displayed by the AVN. Only the changed options are forwarded to the SVM unit through M_CAN.
These three options are applied as soon as they have been selected by the user. Based on the conditions, the initial views displayed are as follows.
Default setting
Guideline steering interlocking
Interlocks with steering to display the driving direction of the vehicle during parking.
Classification code
Close range warning indicator
Indicates front and rear obstacle detection
Classification code
Initial view mode setting
Default view displayed when entering SVM mode
Front + surround view
Rear + surround view

Operations for Guideline Steering Interlocking Indications
The indication for the guideline steering interlocking trace uses the steering wheel angle value periodically received by the SVM unit through C-CAN.
A rear area that displays a 130 degree image of the rear mode (two-split mode) and a wide view is displayed with the expected car movement trace.

3 m (9.84 ft)

Bumper left-hand side end + 0.3 m (0.98 ft)

Bumper right-hand side end + 0.3 m (0.98 ft)

Indications for neutral trace lines
If the steering angle is neutral, the neutral trace line is indicated in blue, which shows the expected movement trace of the car.
This line is displayed with the guideline steering interlocking trace line and is also a fixed line that is not interlocked with the steering angle operation.
