TECHNOLOGY TO ASSIST DRIVERS WHEN PARKING
The most common cause of fleet insurance claims is low-speed collisions caused by blind spots and tight car parks. The problems associated with blind spots while moving a vehicle in reverse have long been recognized. There have been repeated accidents associated with vehicles backing up involving personal injury and damage to property. As vehicles are generally operated by one person, drivers will often back-up without adequate visibility to the rear. Even the presence of a passenger who can help in spotting obstacles or a person standing behind the vehicle to guide the driver does not wholly eliminate the blind spot to the driver.
Technical aids to improve vision to the rear by a short-range obstacle or target detection and distance measurement have, therefore, been developed in recent years and introduced into the market. These devices generally fall into three categories:
(i) optical systems using image sensors, infrared light, video or laser devices,
(ii) conductivity measurement systems, and
(iii) ultrasound systems
GET AUDIBLE WARNINGS IF THERE ARE OBSTACLES IN YOUR WAY WHEN REVERSING.
Shift into reverse to activate the front and rear parking sensors.
Listen for the speed of the warning sounds - a constant tone means you are close to an object.
Visually confirm your car is clear and park.
WHAT IT DOES?
This feature can detect objects in front and back of a car while parking, providing audible alerts if one or more objects are detected. Front and rear parking sensor systems prevent parking scrapes and bumps by detecting obstacles around your vehicle, including the ones you can’t see from the driver’s seat, and providing a warning to the driver, giving you time to avoid an accident and park safely every time. Rear parking sensors reduce reversing crashes by 18% or more.
NOTE: Detection distances vary according to fitted height and obstacles being detected.
THE TECHNOLOGY BEHIND IT
Ultrasonic sensors in the front and back bumpers of the car can detect objects within a set range with adjustable sensitivity. In most cars, the front sensors can detect objects up to four feet and the back sensors can detect objects up to eight feet.
WHAT IS IN THE KIT?
Front and rear parking sensor kits include four sensors with versatile mounting options, a slimline LED display, a control unit, and all cables with a generous 15-foot sensor harness length.
Automatically switch on when reverse gear selected
Four bumper mounted sensors
22.5mm detachable heads for easy service or vehicle repair
Control module - 2 wire installation
Super loud buzzer
Finished in black, but can be painted to match your vehicle.
Reversing sensors are a driving aid and the usual driving precautions should be taken whilst reversing. Sensors may not detect all possible objects or obstructions. Detection distances are approximate
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO
When using this feature, listen for any audible warnings that there are objects in front or behind you as you are parking. The intervals between beeps become shorter the closer the car is to an object. Here are what the beeps mean: High-toned, continuous beeps indicate objects are detected near the front bumper. Low-toned beeps indicate objects are detected near the rear bumper.
TIPS FOR USING
Don’t fully rely on parking sensors to detect all objects in your parking path. They may not detect objects that are flat on the ground, below the bumper, too close to the car, or too far from it.
Make sure the sensors are clear of any obstructions on the bumpers, such as snow or dirt.
Stay aware of your surroundings while parking, including people or objects that may enter the parking path.
