Abolishing the blind spot
Trysome Auto-Electrical Engineering has introduced to South Africa what it claims is the global benchmark in blind-spot monitoring systems – Preco’s PreView Side Defender II.
In a statement, a spokesman says the system changes the landscape of on-road safety thanks to its rugged, reliable and flexible radar technology.
“PreView Side Defender II actively monitors a vehicle’s blind spots, detecting moving vulnerable road users while ignoring stationary objects, resulting in safer driving for truck and bus operators in crowded low-speed urban settings.”
The statement adds that the system features a new in-cab display that offers intuitive audible and visual alerts, and which is said to be quicker to install compared with the previous edition.
Tom Loutzenheiser, Preco’s vice-president of business development, says Side Defender II represents an evolution in technology. “As the newest, innovative solution with the proven flexibility and built-in retrofit capabilities of its predecessor, the system successfully eliminates nuisance alerts, reduces lane-change accidents and mitigates incidents in urban settings.”
Loutzenheiser adds that, since 2016, PreView Side Defender has been perceived as the most advanced side blind-spot monitoring solution available.
“In reducing incident rates by up to 85 percent, Side Defender technology has been a proven solution to side blind-spot collisions. Now, Side Defender II takes its place as the new global benchmark,” he says.
