Blind Spot Detection

By Mike Brezonick18 November 2019

ASA Electronics, a manufacturer of mobile electronic products for on-highway, off-highway and marine applications, has developed a new blind spot detection system for commercial vehicles. The Voyager VBSD3 system is designed to increase driver awareness by bringing familiar automotive industry technology to the commercial vehicle environment.

The newest addition to Voyager’s line of sensor safety systems uses radar technology to detect vehicles and other obstructions in the blind zone of the vehicle, as well as rear cross traffic. When an object is detected in the blind zone, the driver will be alerted by an LED light beacon installed in the cab. Along with the visual warning, an audible warning will sound if an object is detected in the blind zone while the turn signal is on. The Rear Cross Traffic Alert System will issue the same warnings when the vehicle is in reverse.

The VBSD3 radar sensors are protected by a rugged, waterproof housing designed to withstand road conditions, the company said.
