Preco Electronics PreView Side Defender II actively monitors a truck's blind spot, detecting moving vulnerable road users (VRU) while ignoring stationary objects, resulting in safer driving for truck operators in crowded low-speed urban settings.
Using the system’s two intelligent operating modes, Side Defender II provides urban VRU and on-road lane change blind spot protection. As part of the Side Defender II system, the new PreView v2 in-cab display equips operators with more intuitive audible and visual alerts while offering installers more flexibility and time savings, according to the company.
Side Defender II adds VRU awareness to Preco's blind spot lane change assist feature. Preco notes that the Side Defender II eliminates nuisance alerts, reduces lane change accidents, and mitigates incidents in urban settings.
Side Defender II adds intelligent technology to an already successful lane change assist feature, meeting the demand for collision mitigation systems capable of ignoring stationary objects while alerting on moving VRUs in crowded urban environments. The new slow speed functionality provides the reliability and active safety alerts over-the-road truck operators and city service and delivery drivers will benefit from worldwide.
