How Blind Spot Sensors work?

icon/user/avatar/20 Created with Sketch. By Viktor Kalutsky

Every day we are on the road driving big or small cars trying our best to navigate our vehicles around traffic, but we can’t always see every corner of the vehicle which sometimes causes accidents. This is why most car manufacturers equip vehicles with awesome features that help you avoid little or larger accidents. There are many features that help you avoid accidents such as blind spot sensors, back up cameras, side mirrors and more. But today we are going to be talking about blind spot sensors.


“Blindspot.” Car Tunes Mobile Entertainment,


Blind Spot Sensors: “The blind spot monitor is a vehicle-based sensor device that detects other vehicles located to the driver's side and rear. Warnings can be visual, audible, vibrating, or tactile. However, blind-spot monitors are an option that may do more than monitor the sides and rear of the vehicle.”


Blindspot sensors actually rely on sensors to detect on approaching vehicles which were actually at first developed by Volvo in 2003 to make cars safer, since then most manufacturers adopted this new feature. This feature works by either radar or a computer version sensors to detect other vehicles coming closer to you from left or right when a vehicle gets too close to you a light will turn on in the vehicle and if you try to twitch lanes it will start blinking fast and get your attention, of course, different cars have different indications. Blindspot sensors is actually a simple feature but yet so effective in helping people avoid crashes because they miss a few cars, here at Bcr Automotive we have many vehicles that have blind-spot sensors.
