Increasing bicycle traffic in cities heightens the risk for truck drivers of serious accidents with cyclists. This is not only a blind spot problem but is also often due to poor visibility. With the aid of Short Range Corner Radar, the Turn Assist is able to detect cyclists in the danger zone of a truck and warn them if necessary. This makes it superior to today's common retrofit solutions, which are often deactivated due to false alarms.
Acoustic, haptic or visual warning
Speed-dependent control e.g. up to 30 km/h
Warning only in case of danger, therefore higher acceptance by users
Reliable, weather-independent object detection via Short Range Corner Radar (even at night)
Meets future legal requirements for a Blind Spot Information System
