Whether changing from one lane to another or turning, you can quickly overlook another car, a cyclist or a pedestrian. This can often result in a serious accident. The problem is the blind spot, which you cannot see directly. But with the electrical Blind Spot Assistant, you can solve this problem.
Sensors provide information at an early stage
At a Blind spot assistant system is a technical device in a car. This technical facility warns early if there is a risk of collision with another road user in the invisible area of the rear-view mirror. The monitoring of a blind spot assistant consists of sensors, more precisely ultrasonic sensors. The sensors are located on the side of the car as well as at the back. This means that there is no blind spot since the vehicle side is monitored. To be more precise, the sensors detect possible obstacles and measure the distances. Depending on the system, there are differences in the distances. There are blind spot systems that can measure distances behind the car of up to three meters. If the distance falls below a certain value, it provides an alarm or visual information (or both). The information enables the driver to brake or avoid immediately or simply not to change lanes. A blind spot assistant is usually part of the optional equipment for new models. But a blind spot assistant can also be retrofitted to a car in older models.
Different options for retrofitting
There are special sets for retrofitting, depending on the model of the car. There are basically different options for retrofitting. For example, retrofitting on the substructure. The individual sensors are attached to the substructure accordingly and then connected. But there is also the possibility of retrofitting in side mirror, here the sensors are often integrated directly into the mirror glasses. In addition to the sensors required to measure the distances, there is also a control module or, depending on the model, a complete control device that allows the blind spot system to be switched on and off. And depending on the module, the alarm is triggered by a tone or various warning lights. The volume of the warning tone can be adjusted in its strength via the control device.
different systems - depending on your wallet
There are also models in which LED warning lights can either be mounted in the triangles on the mirrors on the right and left. But there is also the possibility of the LED warning lights on the right and left of the A column to assemble. Of course, the systems also differ further. For example, there are variants that can work completely without a lane marking, there is the possibility of even intervening in the steering wheel and automatically getting the car back on track and monitoring more than four lanes is not uncommon. Ultimately, the only decisive factor is your wallet. Here you would have to adjust the fairing accordingly, depending on the model of the car. The electric side assist system is a convenient alternative to the manual variant and ensures more safety on the roads.
