Continental’s Turn Assist makes right-hand turns safer and easier and reduces commercial vehicle driver stress by warning the driver with audible and visual alerts when pedestrians, cyclists, and other vulnerable road users are detected inside the vehicle’s danger zone.
The radar-based system also delivers reliable detection in bad weather and under poor lighting conditions, the company says. It can be retrofitted on all types of trucks, buses, and RVs, including older vehicles, and can also be connected to other vehicle warning systems. The system features a radar sensor, evaluation unit, buzzer for audible warning, steering angle sensor, and a light for visual warning. The radar sensor is installed on the rear-view mirror and monitors an area up to 13 feet to the side of the vehicle and up to 46 feet behind it.
