Modern day vehicles are becoming more intelligent with the use of ADAS (Advanced Driver-Assistance System) Systems on offer. One such system is the Blind Spot Assist function.
Blind Spot Assist is used on vehicles to alert the driver if there is a vehicle in range or close to the rear quarter of the vehicle outside the field of view of your mirror, especially if you’re about to turn or move into a different lane.
Whilst this technology is seen more and more in smaller Passenger vehicles, we’ve not seen a great deal of Motorhomes (big or small) with this type of technology, which is surprising given their size.
To address this technological shortfall we’re working with a Company in the USA to bring a brilliant new system to the UK that can be retrofitted to Class A and B Motorhomes. We will (within reason) be able to retrofit any Motorhome with Blind Spot Assist to give you that extra protection and peace of mind whilst driving.
Two Microwave Radars (24Ghz) are installed to the rear of the vehicle that constantly monitor what is going on behind when you are moving. If a vehicle travelling in your Blind Spot is picked up then you’ll be notified visually by the system indicators.
This system also offer another great ADAS System called LCA (Lane Change Alert).
Lane Change Alert
This system is designed so that when moving, if you indicate left or right to move lanes and the system detects a vehicle in range with an impact of less than 2 seconds an audible tone will be heard and the warning indicator lamp with the corresponding turn signal will flash.
Motorhomes are big vehicles and driving them safely can be challenging at times. By being first to bring this technology for Motorhome owners in the UK, Motorhome Retrofits is providing a unique and vital component for Motorhome driver/passenger safety.
This fantastic new system has now been installed onto our resident motorhome and we are working with the manufacturer to tweak the specifications and integration in preparation for rolling it out here in the UK.
